This black bean and potato seitan roast recipe is extremely hearty and filling, ideal for hungry families in need of comfort food!
Best served with a mushroom or brown onion gravy with a some baked vegetable sides!
For this recipe you will need a large mixing bowl, a potato masher (if you do not like mixing by hand), a large bread pan, non-stick parchment paper, aluminum foil and a baking tray.
Firstly, set your oven to 180 degrees C (360 F). Next take your large mixing bowl and add the toast, potatoes and black beans before mashing by hand or with masher.
Now add the flakes, scallions, dried herbs, garlic powder, granulated onion and pepper before mixing again. Now add the rest of the ingredients in order before kneading the roast until well combined (about 2 minutes). The mixture should be like a stringy dough. Depending on the moisture content of your potatoes, beans etc you may need more flour or water to get the mixture to the right consistency.
Line your bread pan with baking paper then fill with the mixture. Cover the pan with Aluminium foil and place in the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove the foil and place back in the oven for a further 30 minutes.
After the hour is complete you should be able to remove the roast from the baking pan in one piece. My roast was still soft on the sides so I wrapped it in fresh baking paper and foil, placed it on a baking tray and cooked it for a further hour flipping the roast at the 30 minute mark.
