Holiday Seitan Roast
Yes, you can carve a roast this Thanksgiving! Our seitan roast pairs well with all the tasty trimmings of the holiday--and makes great leftover sandwiches, too.
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Combine salt, pepper, and paprika in small bowl. Rub over seitan pieces.
3. Heat 1 Tbs. oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add seitan, and brown 6 minutes, turning to cook all sides. Remove seitan from pan, and set aside.
4. Add remaining 1 Tbs. oil to pan, sprinkle with flour, and reduce heat to medium. Cook 3 minutes, or until smooth roux forms. Add wine, then tomato paste, broth, tamari, thyme, and rosemary; cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until sauce begins to thicken.
5. Transfer seitan to roasting pan. Surround with carrots, celery, parsnip, potatoes, and onions. Pour sauce over top. Cover with foil, and roast 35 to 45 minutes. Remove foil, and roast 10 to 15 minutes more. Thinly slice seitan, and serve with vegetables and sauce.
