Orange Dijon Seitan

Orange Dijon Seitan

I’ve become obsessed with making my own seitan lately. Not only is it super easy, and economical, but it is wonderful because seitan can be infused with a wide variety of flavors and textures. Spices, herbs, liquids, veggies, oils and acids. This Orange Dijon Seitan Sausage is tender in texture, infused with citrus and spicy Dijon flavors. I love to serve as a protein-rich side dish or layer it for a seitan sandwich. Seitan is a vegetarian/vegan protein that is made from vital wheat gluten. You can find vital wheat gluten in the baking/flour section of the grocery store. You simply mix the ingredients in a bowl, wrap the loaf mixture in foil and cook. Give this homemade veggie protein a try..

Orange Dijon Seitan Sausage
makes one long loaf/sausage

2 cups vital wheat gluten
1/2 cup soy flour
1 1/2 cup water
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp orange zest
2-3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
optional: 1/4 cup nutritional yeast


1. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Then fold in the remaining ingredients. Your mixture will soon form into a ball. Knead the ball in the bowl for a minute.
2. Place the ball in a large piece of foil. Roll out into a sausage shape and roll up in the foil – twisting the ends tightly. Poke a vent for steam in foil.
(you can steam for 30 minutes then bake for the remaining 15 minutes – or do all baking for about 35 minutes.)
3. If steaming, preheat oven to 350 degrees and place foil packet in steamer for about 30 minutes. Then bake for another 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. You can also just bake the seitan. But steamed seitan comes out a bit more tender.

Allow to cool a few minutes out of oven. Slice and serve. I love this seitan dipped in Vegenaise vegan mayo!

    It just doesn’t look appealing. Sorry. : (

    True, it is not the prettiest loaf in the world but I found the taste to be great! I really like the orangey flavor and the texture was very close to ordinary veggie sausage. I served mine two ways: one with marinara sauce over noodles and another night sliced over coconut milk rice with mung beans. Both were a hit and these was a nice change of pace from tofu and tempeh.
