Seitan pockets

These were really easy and fun to make. They also made fabulous leftovers. You can really fill them with anything you want - be creative!


1 recipe Basic, all-purpose dough
1 package seitan
2-3 tbs soy sauce
a few shakes liquid smoke
2-3 tbs vegetarian-friendly steak sauce (I like the Annie's Worchestershire)
About 1 cup shredded cheese (for these, I prefer a sharp cheddar)

Preheat oven to 450

1. Prepare the dough. On the final rising step, you can prepare the seitan.
2. Cut the seitan into strips and saute in a small amount of oil for about 7 minutes, until slightly browned. (Yes, I know its already brown).
3. Add the sauces and saute a bit more. Taste for flavor.
4. Cut the dough into about 6 pieces of equal size. Flatten each piece so that it is about the thickness of a pizza crust. Shape into a circle if you can. Place about 1/6 of the seitan mixture into the lower-center of the dough and top with cheese. Fold the dough over the filling. Press the sides and corners - you can roll them a bit to make them look pretty. Brush the top of each pocket with milk or egg yolk.
5. Bake about about 450 for 8-10 minutes, until the dough is browned.
