Monte’s Ham glaze on homemade seitan.
Glaze: 1 part orange marmalade, 1 part brown sugar, 2/3 part Dijon (3 Tbl. marmalade, 3 Tbl. brown sugar, 2 Tbl. Dijon, plus a pinch of cloves).
10 ounce box vital wheat gluten (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup canned chick peas, mashed well (drain and save liquid from 10. 5 ounce can)
4 Tbl. soy sauce
1 Tbl. olive oil
1 1/2 cups broth (liquid from chick pea can plus enough water to make 1 1/2 cups)
5 Tbl. nutritional yeast
2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4-1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
Combine everything in a bowl (or mix right in the roasting pan you will use for baking). Knead the mixture well, place it in a roasting pan, and shape it into a loaf that is about 4″x12″ (or whatever shape you want, actually). Add about 1/2″ water to the pan. Cover tightly. Bake for an hour and 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
Cool and refrigerate overnight. Slice thinly, but keep in loaf shape. Brush with glaze, getting some glaze between the slices. Roast for a half hour at 375 degrees.
