Seitan: cos’è e come si prepara in casa

Sembra che ad inventare questo alimento siano stati dei monaci buddhisti, per scelta di vita vegetariani. Il seitan è glutine, recuperato dalla farina di frumento normale. Sembra impossibile che un alimento così povero di nutrienti riesca a diventare un piatto ricco di proteine! Come è possibile?

Gli ingredienti necessari alla preparazione del Seitan sono: 1kg di farina tipo 0 o 00 e 600ml acqua. Il procedimento è semplice: impastate la farina insieme all’acqua fino a formare un impasto omogeneo. Una volta creata una palla, mettetela in un recipiente e copritela di acqua di rubinetto; lasciatela riposare per 6-8 ore a temperatura ambiente.
Passato questo periodo di tempo, iniziate a “lavare” la palla di impasto sotto un getto d’acqua moderato: vedrete che l’acqua sarà bianca, ricca di amido che viene eliminato dall’impasto. Continuate a lavare l’impasto delicatamente finché il glutine non si sarà concentrato e l’acqua di risciacquo non sarà diventata trasparente.
La resa di questo procedimento, se fatto in modo corretto, dovrebbe essere di circa 450gr di pasta di seitan per 1kg di farina.
E adesso? Manca solo la cottura del seitan; preparate un brodo con:
2 litri di acqua
1 pezzo di alga kombu
1 cm di zenzero tagliato a rondelle
30gr salsa di soia/tamari
20gr di sale, carote, sedano, aromi vari – (facoltativi)
Fate bollire tutti gli ingredienti insieme per almeno 5 minuti e aggiungete la pasta di seitan (450gr) dopo avere formato un cilindro di forma regolare, avvolto in un panno di cotone legato alle estremità con spago da cucina.
Cuocete a fuoco moderato con il coperchio per 50 minuti e lasciate raffreddare il seitan nel brodo prima di estrarlo.
Il gioco è fatto, ora il seitan è pronto per essere utilizzato per preparare ragù vegetali, polpette, o da mangiare semplicemente così, a fette.

    Ciao, ho scoperto da poco il tuo blog, mi permetto di darti del tu perché sei giovanissima. Vorrei chiederti un chiarimento riguardo al seitan: Come mai bisogna usare della farina così “Povera” come la O o la OO. ?! È’ risaputo che le farine integrali di svariati tipi di cereali siano le più consigliare da chi consiglia una alimentazione sana e naturale. Grazie

    I think that Gimbalo's threat should be taken seriously and any woman on that list now has reasonable cause to shoot him dead if he approaches within 50 feet of her.He has motive and intent clearly established. All that is missing is opportunity.He seems to have forgotten that conservative women also are not against carrying guns. Nor do they frown when their male friends do. Karma can be fickle as well.
