This is the THE BEST seitan log I have made to date. It was very moist and flavorful. I chose to omit the cinnamon, cumin and allspice. I added 1 teaspoon of onion powder instead. It was such a huge hit, we ate 2/3 of it for dinner tonight. Thanks for posting a fantastic recipe!
After discovering this recipe on the site, it is now one of the most versatile recipes in my arsenal. Like user veggie_mama, I also omit the cinnamon, cumin, and allspice. I add onion powder in their place. My household enjoys just snacking on the log throughout the day. Its so good! When I make tofu lasagna, I crumble part of the log up and throw it in my vegan "ricotta" mixture. It gives it an extra kick! So many ways to use this recipe in others.
Fabulous! I tripled the recipe, and changed up the spices a bit. I was aiming for a "smoked turkey" tasting substitute. The addition of liquid smoke, onion powder and poultry seasoning helped. I left out the cinnamon, allspice and cumin. I used half tamari, and half Braggs. I ended up slicing this pretty thinly on an electric slicer, and making panini with it and some brie, pesto and baby spinach. Wonderful directions, Ajo, thanks!
My first experience with making my own meat substitute. I left out the "sweeter" spices, but added onion like others did. I'll definitely make this again, cause I can see flavoring this with crumbled seaweed to make a fish patty, using poultry seasoning for turkey type things. I will either double wrap this next time or cook less, as mine got pretty dark on the down side of my log. Tasty though. Thanks for sharing.
I'm new to vegetarian cooking and this recipe was easy to follow and turned out beautifully. I look forward to trying other spice combinations.
This recipe is awesome! It was my first attempt at making my own seitan & i'm so happy with the way it came out. I didn't use allspice or cinnamon because I didn't have any on hand. I also added onion powder (1 tsp), as suggested by some of the other reviewers. Thank you for sharing!
This is delicious. I made it exactly as the recipe calls for and can't believe how tasty it is. I am going to try to experiment with other spices next. I think it comes out much more compact than when I boiled my seitan for an hour in a broth mixture. That was also very good but the seitan was not nearly as firm as baking made it. This was also very easy to do. I highly recommend trying it.
The first seitan recipe I made, and it was a huge success! I always play around a bit with the spices and sometimes add some liquid smoke to make it taste sausage-y, but it always turns out fantastic!
This recipe is awesome! Definitely try it once as is and then break out the customizations.
Delicious, amazing, and so simple!! This was my first time making it, so I decided to use the combination of spices as written. I think I did omit the cinnamon only. The allspice comes through loud and clear... I ight make it one more time exactly as written, and then try some other spice combos. I used the seitan sliced thin for sandwiches: wheat bread, lettuce, tomato and mustard. I also diced the rest of the log and made it into a taco filling, YUM
