Vegan Lunchmeat

This recipe comes from Vegan Dad blog, very sadly not being updated anylonger. We miss you!
It makes a log of vegan mock meat perfect for cold meat sandwiches.

Vegan Lunchmeat


1 cup white beans
2 cups water
1/4 cup oil
2 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic
1/4 tsp tumeric
1 tsp ground fennel
1 tsp sage
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp soy sauce
2 3/4 cup vital wheat gluten (I used Organ Gluten Free Gluten Substitute)


Get water steaming in your steamer. I used the steamer in my rice maker but you could just boil water over the stover with a colander in the top.
Place all ingredients except the gluten flour in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a bowl. Add gluten flour and work into a dough.

Shape dough into a log and wrap in heavy duty foil like a tootsie roll. Try to make the roll as thick as possible. Steam for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 180C in the last 15 mins of steaming. Remove seitan from steamer and bake for 45-60 mins. Seitan should swell and press against the foil.
Cool and slice as needed for sandwiches. This seitan holds up very well and can be shaved very thin. Store in the fridge
