Don’t want to miss out on a Roast for Thanksgiving? Try this delicious, vegan Seitan Roast, stuffed with a Bread Filling. Surprise your family and friends!
We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Austria, but I was in the mood for a huge feast. After seeing so many great Thanksgiving recipes on blogs day after day, who would judge me? I’ve made some roasts before, mainly for christmas, but this is the first one with a bread stuffing.
For the stuffing I used some dry bread cubes. I bought mine, but if you have some leftover white bread you can use just that. Bread cubes are often used for bread dumplings in Austria, so they are available in pretty much every store. I’ve made too much of the filling, so I just formed the rest of it into balls and used it as a side. The amount of the ingredients in the recipe is adapted, so the filling should be quite right.
I love the smell of onion, garlic, parsley and cumin. It’s perfect for the filling.
I rolled out the seitan as thin as possible, but it’s really hard work! Mine got the shape of a circle, but a rectangle would have been even better! I steamed the seitan before putting the stuffing on top.
Press the stuffing on top and roll it in firmly. Place the seitan roll in a oven dish along with the other side dishes you want to add (like potatoes, vegetables etc.).
The marinade helped to make the seitan look so good, the outside is crispy, and the inside super soft.
I’ve made some potatoes, mushrooms, spinach and leftover-filling-dumplings to serve with the roast. Everything went into the oven so it was super crispy goodness!

- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1/2 cup unsweetened plant-based milk I used rice milk
- 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley

- Prepare your steamer. I heated a big pot of water with a steamer part on top.

- Add the water to the kitchen processor.

- Put the seitan on a board and roll it with a rolling pin as good as it gets.
- Place the seitan into the steamer and let it steam for about 15-20 minutes.
- Meanwhile prepare the bread stuffing: In a mixing bowl add the white bread and pour over the plant-based milk. Mix. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes. The bread cubes should get softer. Heat a little bit of canola oil in a pan and add the diced onion, minced garlic, chopped parsley and cumin. Stir until it gets a nice golden color. Then add the onion-garlic-mixture and salt to the bread cubes and stir.
- Take out the seitan of the steamer and let it cool off so you can roll it in afterwards without burning your hands.
- Preheat the oven to 500 °F / 250 °C.
- Meanwhile you can prepare the marinade by mixing all the ingredients given above together.
- Press the stuffing on top of the seitan and roll it in firmly.
- Place the seitan in an oven dish, add vegetables, potatoes etc. if you want to.
- Pour half of the marinade over the seitan.
- Bake the seitan roast for about 30 minutes, stir the vegetables occasionally to prevent it from burning.
- Turn the seitan and use the rest of the marinade for the other side. And let it bake in the oven again for about 20 minutes.
- As soon as you're satisfied with the color and crispness of the seitan, you can enjoy your homemade seitan roast!
