3/4 cup vegetable broth

2 tbsp tahini

2-3 cups of vegetable broth

coconut oil

1 onion chopped



Bowl 1

1 cup all purpose flour mixed with 1 tsp black pepper

Bowl 2

2 eggs worth of egg replacer mixed with almond mylk

Bowl 3

1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs mixed with 1 tbsp all purpose flour



  • In a mixing bowl, mix together wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, onion powder and poultry seasoning.
  •  In a larger bowl, combine broth and tahini and whisk until smooth.
  • Mix the dry ingredients with the wet and stir until well combined.
  • Knead  the dough until it is elastic but not dry. Sprinkle some additional gluten flour if you find you have made your dough too sticky.
  • Divide the dough into eight equal pieces.
  • Roll each piece of dough until it is a 1/2″ cutlet and then place  in casserole dish, covering them with vegetable broth.
  • Cook cutlets in broth and onions for 1 hour at 350 degrees, flipping at 45 minutes.


Breading The Cutlets

  • Get your three bowls ready.
  • Dip each seitan cutlet in the flour/black pepper, then the egg replacer/mylk, then the breading/flour.


  • In a large, heavy-bottomed frying pan, heat 1/2″ to 1″ of oil. There should be enough oil to cover the cutlets completely.
  • Fry the seitan a couple cutlets at a time, about 5 minutes or until they are golden brown, flipping once.
  • Pat excess oil off each cutlet and place cutlet on a bun, topping with your favorite mushroom gravy, or sauerkraut.
