Servings: people Units:
Stuffing Instructions
  1. Cut toasted bread into over-sized thumb sized pieces and place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add all of the remaining ingredients, except the vegetable broth.
  3. Add half of the vegetable broth and stir everything together till well combined.
  4. Add remaining vegetable broth and stir again till well combined. Set aside while you prepare your gravy and roast dough.
Roasts Instructions
  1. Put all of the "dry" roasts ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir with a spoon or whisk until well mixed together.
  2. Place all of the "wet" roasts ingredients in a food processor and pulse about 10-20 times until moist but slightly chunky. (see video at top of this page for detailed demo).
  3. Pour wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir together to combine. I use a silicone spatula because it makes it easy to scrape all of the flour off the edges of the bowl. Use your hands if you need to combine all of the ingredients together into a stringy yet fairly firm dough ball.
  4. Divide the dough in half and place half of the dough onto some non-stick parchment paper and shape into a rectangular shape. Approx 30x20cm/12 x 8 in
  5. Place half of your stuffing mixture along one part of the long edge and use your parchment paper to roll it up into a long roast shape. Carefully cut in half and set aside while you do the same again with the remaining dough and stuffing.
  6. Set aside on some non-stick parchment paper while you move on to the next stage.
Gravy Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/360F.
  2. In a large baking dish, add all of your gravy ingredients except the mushrooms. Using a whisk or fork, give everything a good stir through and make sure that there are no bits of lumpy flour.
  3. Evenly spread your mushrooms over the gravy liquid.
  4. Place your mini roasts on top and tightly cover the dish with foil.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Carefully remove the foil and place back in oven without foil for another 15 minutes. Then remove from oven and enjoy!

    I have bought seitan (gluten flour) but was afraid of using it. Thank you for the step by step video Anja! I am definitively making this recipe for the holidays.

    This looks amazing! The flour that you used, is it Vital Wheat Gluten or just regular gluten flour?

    • Anja December 12, 2015 at 5:56 pm - Reply

      Yes, Vital Wheat Gluten πŸ™‚

    Hi Anja can I use wholewheat flour instead of chickpea/besan flour? Thanks for the recipe I am having this for my first vegan xmas this year πŸ˜€

    • Anja December 16, 2015 at 2:14 pm - Reply

      So glad you will be enjoying this for your first vegan christmas πŸ™‚ Wholewheat flour might make this a bit heavy and gluggy. You could try a half batch and see how you go. The chickpea flour helps to bind it too. So maybe oat flour could be a better option. Let me know how it turns out for you.

    Hi Anja, thanks for the recipe. Any ideas on how to substitute the mushrooms?
    Ps great book too!! Congrats

    • Anja December 23, 2015 at 6:22 am - Reply

      Maybe use some slices of eggplant.

    Hi Anja, this looks fantastic! Just wondered if the loaves could be prepared a day in advance (ie. follow the recipe up to step 6 of the Roast section a day beforehand)? Thanks πŸ™‚

      They are best made fresh.

    I made this for our Christmas dinner. Added a bit of sage to the stuffing just for old times sake. It was a big hit in our house and I am sure to make it for our holiday meals forever. Absolutely delicious!!!

    Thank you! Been looking at all the turkey seitan recipes on YouTube and yours looks like the easiest and most versatile so far. Love the way you have the stuffing inside! Definitely will try for Thanksgiving.

    I want to give this recipe a try, but I am making it for only 1. I am new to making seitan, so I’m not sure how long do leftovers keeps in the fridge? How well do leftovers freeze?

    • Anja December 13, 2016 at 11:51 am - Reply

      I’m not sure how well it will freeze. I haven’t tried because I always eat it all. It will last in the fridge for 5 days.

    Anja, This looks soo yummy. Going to the store today and will fix it this afternoon – then freeze for a couple of days and thaw for Christmas dinner.

    Thanks again for a great recipe; love the idea of including chick peas into the seitan for added protein, Brilliant.

    Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Anja I really like to make this but I am ciliac so can I use my flour?

  15. Juanita Lyon January 10, 2017 at 6:02 am - Reply

    What could I substitute for the gravy part that would hold the roasts up as my husband does not care for mushrooms that much . The recipe looks wonderful with the stuffing inside. how do you think it would freeze. I was thinking freezing the gravy and roast separate.

    • Anja May 19, 2017 at 11:06 am - Reply

      You could use eggplant instead of mushrooms. It should freeze fine.

    Anja, thank you for all of your recipes. I have a question. Is there a substitute for the chickpeas? Not a fan of the flavor.

    • Anja May 18, 2017 at 4:49 pm - Reply

      Hi Adai, you actually can’t taste the chickpeas. But you could use any other white bean or cashews.

  17. Shirlene May 18, 2017 at 2:52 am - Reply

    Anna, i made this today and the flavor of the gravy was so good. When I cut the first piece it was mushy on the bottom so I turned it over and stuck it in for another 20 minutes which helped the roast but dried the gravy up so I hardly had any sauciness. It this normal>

    • Anja May 18, 2017 at 2:28 pm - Reply

      Hi Shirlene, did you convert the quantities to imperial? Or maybe your oven runs a little bit hotter or colder than mine. I have never had this happen to be personally. I’m glad it tasted good πŸ™‚

  18. Rebekah August 27, 2017 at 4:30 pm - Reply

    Hi Anja,
    Thank you so much for all your lovely recipes πŸ™‚
    I was wondering, is there a gluten free alternative to gluten flour? I desperately want to try this recipes out, so really hope you can help me out πŸ™‚ Thanks
