Vegan Mofo #3: It’s slowcooker season!

Ah, fall.  We’re smack dab in the middle of you and i’m cold and I hate it.  The kitchen is especially cold, so now is a good time to utilize my crock pot and spend as little time in there as possible!

The other night, I got it in my head that I wanted seitan roast.  Probably because I read about it in Vegan on the Cheap.  Not surprisingly, when I googled for seitan roast, Robin Robertson’s blog was one of the first links!  I (for once) followed the recipe exactly, in hindsight I wish I had added some chickpea flour to make the seitan not quite so chewy.  Mine seemed done in two hours, but I let it go for another 30 minutes to let it get more delicious.  (P.S.  I realize that these are kind of sucky photos.  It was dark!)

    What’s going on with that gravy? It looks absolutely delicious!!!!

  • I have been meaning to try that roast, but have never gotten around to it. If only I had access to a crock pot!
    I love the pictures, especially the first one that looks kinda like brains (in a good way, promise).

  • Awesome looking roast, such great comfort food. I love your piles and piles of waffles too, btw.

  • Holy Guacamole! This looks like a big ol mess of YUM. Happy MoFo’ing!

    I love seitan. I use it on my blog often. Vegan on the cheap is a great resource.

  • That looks all sorts of delicious. I printed out this recipe a while back and forgot about it. I was kind of afraid it’d be horrible.

  • ooh. That looks really yummy.

  • You made that in a slowcooker? Impressive!

    I’m a fan of this recipe. I always make the seitan from scratch (from the same cookbook). Last time I wrapped the roast in cheesecloth to give it a tighter texture. Next time I’m going to try to incorporate some okara into it as well.
