Health on a Plate


This Seitan(Gluten) Mushroom stew is easy and delicious. Its made in just a few minutes. I have used homemade Seitan, made from scratch using wheat flour. But you can also buy a package of Seitan in the stores. Or you can make it using Vital Wheat Gluten, another form of the same thing. If you’re using homemade Seitan, first you need to boil it with veggies and natural spices. Once it is ready, cut it unto pieces. Now you’re ready to make this stew. 

This recipe should be easy for anyone to make, even if you have tried gluten before and had a hard time with it- especially if you try with the commercially prepared product, rather than taking the time to wash the wheat in making gluten.

  • 400 gram of Seitan  
  • 1 cup mushrooms. I used black dry mushrooms. 
  • 1 cup finely chopped red onion,
  • 1 small green, yellow or red bell pepper, Cubed.
  • Half cup of boiled chickpeas. (Optional)
  • Some baby spinach leaves,  (optional). 
  • 2 medium fresh tomatoes
  • 1 table spoons of tomato paste
  • 1tsp of paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp of oil
  • Salt to taste, (careful, not too much salt)


Cut gluten in big pieces, set aside.  If you’re using fresh mushrooms, just wash and slice the mushrooms. If you’re using dry ones, soak them first in water until soft, then wash well and put aside. In a saucepan, add mushrooms and oil, sauté for about 5 minutes. Then stir in sliced bell peppers, onion, boiled chickpeas (Optional) and fresh sliced tomatoes. Cook for 5-10 minutes stirring frequently. Now add in the pieces of gluten, tomato paste and herbs. Mix very well and let it cook for 3 to 5 minutes. After this, add baby spinach leaves and mix, then switch off the stove. Ready to serve with your brown rice, brown pastas or anything you desire. Enjoy.
