"It's NOT just about the food....it's personal!"

Seitan Steaks – Vegan

I was raised as a Seventh-Day Adventist vegetarian, so I actually grew up with Seitan steaks, however, I knew them as Choplets.  My mom usually bought them in a can, and I loved them then, but I REALLY love them now that I know how to make them!

Who knew they would be so easy to make and so much more tasty when made at home!  I also learned that Seitan steaks originated in Japan a VERY long time ago.  It’s amazing what I’ve learned.  Who says you can’t teach an old dog a new trick.  But I digress!

These Seitan steaks take a bit of time to cook, but the prep time is quick and very easy, so they fit perfectly into my “Unconventional Foodie” mentality!

As a health coach, I also recommend that my clients switch to a more plant-based diet, which includes skipping meat a couple of days a week.  Here again, these Seitan steaks fit perfectly into that equation.  They are loaded with protein and also are very low carb.

Bon Appetit!

For the Seitan (Choplets)

  • 4 C Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 1/2 C organic whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 C organic all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 3 teaspoon chicken seasoning
  • 1/2 C low sodium soy sauce or tamari or Braggs Amino's
  • 3 1/2 C cold water

For the Broth

  • 12 C water
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 C low sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 4 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 3 teaspoon chicken seasoning


For the Seitan (Choplets)

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and whisk to thoroughly combine
  • Combine all wet ingredients in large measuring cup or bowl
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients and mix well
  • Shape dough in a long roll and slice (makes approximately 50 slices)
  • When broth is ready, drop slices into broth and simmer for 60 to 90 minutes
  • Remove from broth, drain well and prepare as desired

For the Broth

  • Dice onion
  • Place onion and remaining ingredients in large stock pot, stir to combine, bring to a boil and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour


Note 1:  Instead of making the broth, you could use 3 quarts of low sodium vegetable broth.  Just add the soy sauce, nutritional yeast and chicken seasoning.
Note 2:  Want more of a beef flavor?  Use beef seasoning instead of chicken.
Note 3:  These "steaks" freeze very well, so this is a great meal-prep dish!
