making seitan using a mixer

I had someone comment who had problems making the seitan using the mixer because the mixer breaks the seitan into several balls. When cooked, the seitan still looks as though it was formed from several different sections instead of being one big mass.

This works even for the Holiday Roast.

Hope this helps!


  1. What kind of mixer is that? The dough hook looks cool.

  2. Thanks, Tami; it is a really good machine. I've had it for a decade now. (Am I really that old?) It is a DeLonghi.

  3. I wish I had a real mixer! LOL
    I would use it for everything!
    I always think your food looks great!

  4. Thanks for the info! Now I'm going to scope it out.

    Hope you're having a wonderful day.

  5. Who knew? i always thought you just buy the little block of it. This is so much more appealing.

  6. I have never made seitan before, but I might have to try now instead of just buying it! Thanks for sharing :)!

  7. Give it a go, gigabiting and Amy. It is much tastier!

  8. I discovered your blog tody, and I loved this post.
    Being vegan is pretty new for me... and your blog is helpful. thanks!
    I'll try to make home-maid seitan :)

  9. Cool! Welcome, What is Seitan. Please ask away! Since I just completed a few veg workshops a few weeks ago, I am up to par on 'Becoming Vegan' and I'm happy to help.
