Vegan Seitan Bacon

Vegan Seitan Bacon

This recipe takes a little time but its definitely worth it. There are a gazillion recipes for seitan bacon but with a lot of trial and error, a few “garbage can” creations, and a lot of patience, I perfected my own. I want to share it with you. If you make it, drop me a line and let me know how you like it.

You will be making two types of dough for this recipe, however if you just want a more “beef” like bacon, then just do the “red” dough, but if you want the marbling then you want to do both.

White Dough:

1 cup vital wheat gluten (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cold water
2 tablespoons olive oil

Red Dough:
1 cup vital wheat gluten (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
3 tablespoons brown rice flour
3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/3 cup cold water
3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
1 tablespoon tomato paste

Preheat over to 325 degrees.
We are mixing the white dough first.
In large mixing bowl, add vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and salt, making sure all ingredients are well combined. in small bowl, mix water and oil, pour into dry ingredients and mix until dough is formed. Make about 2 balls

In another large mixing bowl, add all dry ingredients first, whisk the wet ingredients together and add to the dry ingredients. Mix together to form a large ball. Break into 3 balls.

Take one red ball and flatten, then take a white dough ball and flatten on top of the red ball (this will give you your marbling effect). Continue this with the remaining dough balls. Now shape the dough into a thick square shape.

Place this on a baking sheet layered with parchment paper. Bake for approximately 50 minutes. Remove from over and allow to cool.

To make my slices, I like to use my mandolin. However, if you don’t have one, you can use the slicer side of a grater, or you can slice your pieces with a knife.

Making your own bacon, not only let’s you know what is in it, but it saves you money too.

If you make it drop me a line and let me know. Don’t forget to follow on social media for more awesome content.
