Vegan BBQ Seitan Ribs

  • Recipe by: yumsome
  • Hi there, I'm Nico - a world-travelling chef and food writer! When not writing for food magazines or my blog, I'm a vegan caterer and menu consultant. I've had over 50 homes across the globe, and my food can be found on the menus of restaurants, cafés, and guesthouses from Japan to the USA, and (almost) everywhere in between! More locally, my cakes and savouries can be enjoyed in several cafés around Kent
Serves 10 - 12

Easy to make ang completely vegan and vegetarian friendly.

Seitan is a verstile meat replacement that can be made into ribs, sausages, burgers and meat loaves!

This recipe is great for anyone embarking on a vegan diet and is great in the summer on the arbecue too!

  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°F, gas mark 4) and line a 20cm square tin (8 inch) with baking parchment paper

  • 2.

    In the meantime make the glaze for your vegan 'ribs' by heating a 2 tbsp oil in a pan over a medium-low heat

  • 3.

    Add the smashed garlic and fry for 4-5 minutes

  • 4.

    Dilute the tomato puree with the 100ml of water and whisk in the sugar, liquid smoke, soy sauce, mustard powder, tamarind past and Tabasco

  • 5.

    Add to the pan with the garlic and bring to the boil , stir well and turn down to a low heat and simmer until the sugar is dissolved

  • 6.

    Once you have your glaze set aside and start making the 'ribs'

  • 7.

    Add all of the wet ingredients in a high speed blender and blitz for around 30 seconds

  • 8.

    Place the dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir

  • 9.

    Add the wet ingredients from the blender to the bowl of dry ingredients and combine well until fully incorporated

  • 10.

    Lightly knead for 5 minutes to activate the gluten, then stretch to fill the baking tray

  • 11.

    Take a sharp knife and score the dough into 12 equal pieces (6 x 2) - you don't need to cut them all the way through.

  • 12.

    Brush the top with a little of the glaze and lightly cover with foil

  • 13.

    Bake for around 30-35 minutes until springy to touch

  • 14.

    Remove from the over and set aside for a few minutes

  • 15.

    Turn on the grill and oil the rack lightly to prevent sticking

  • 16.

    Remove the seitan 'ribs' from the baking tray and brush with more of the glaze on the top and place in under the grill (or use a griddle pan)

  • 17.

    Once the tops start to caramelise, turn over and brush with more glaze and place back under the grill

  • 18.

    Once grilled, remove and cut along the scored lines and serve immediately
