Seitan Roast with Stuffing

Here is my first ever attempt at Seitan Roast with Stuffing.   

A celebratory Seitan Roast with Stuffing to be served with all the vegetables you find at Sunday Roast Dinner. 
Talking of celebrations, let me wish all my readers A Happy New Year - 2018.  



I must confess, I am so glad to see the back of 2017 and am genuinely excited at 2018. 2018 will be a year of change for me and a year of new beginnings, but more about that later. 
I have been playing around a lot with seitan recently and have been pleased with the results.

This Seitan Roast was enjoyable, but it was not perfect.  If you look closer the vegan filling made from onion, breadcrumbs and rosemary get a bit lost. This Seitan Roast with Stuffing was enough for 8 - 10 servings.  
I will be making this Seitan Roast with Stuffing again and next time, I will add some green and red to the stuffing so that it is more standoutish.  Also I will upgrade it to a Seitan Wellington by covering it in puff pastry.  In fact, I can't wait to make it again and then I will share the recipe.

  4. Stuffed seitan roast is sooo much work! But it's so festive that it's worth the big work. This one is beautiful. Must have been a wonderful meal.
    Wish you the best for what's coming.

  7. happy new year - looking forward to hearing more about what the new year brings you, I hope it's nothing but lovely things. Your seitan looks so fancy and inviting - when you perfect the recipe, I'd love to see it. I've got a bag of vital wheat gluten that needs using up, and this looks like it's crying out to be a Sunday lunch.

    1. Happy new Year to you Joey. I do hope 2018 is a year of lovely things too, the past 4 years have not been the most memorable. If you want to use up your vital wheat gluten , may i recommend you making chorizo, it is one the most popular blog posts on my blog thanks to the The Terry Hope Romero = see here

    1. Yeah, I was pleased but it was not completely perfect. So will def. be giving it a go again in the very near future, but D has asked for pepperoni this time with the vital wheat gluten so that he can put them in sandwiches for work.

  10. I love seitan! But my husband doesn't so I 'be stopped making it. Do you make yours from gluten flour? I made mine by kneading strong wheat flour dough and ri sing off the starch. Laborious, but fun! Your toast looks really neat and sliceable.

    1. Thank you. Always with VWG, I tried making it once from strong wheat flour and was left with a small mass, that I gave up ever trying it again. Hard work. This roast is not perfect, but nearly. I am still not 100% sold on seitan as I too find the texture somewhat disturbing at times, but my husband enjoys it
