10 Minute Instant Pot Seitan

Perfect seitan is supposed to be complicated right? With kneading, simmering, and exact ingredient ratios? The instant pot fixed this.


Ingredients for a 2 serving loaf:



  • Mix 1/2 cup PACKED seitan mix with 1/2 cup water until well combined. There should be no dry spots and it should not be watery. If too dry, add a bit more water, if too wet, add a bit more seitan mix ;-)
  • Oil a piece of aluminum foil
  • Shape mix into a log
  • Tightly wrap log with oiled foil 2-3 times and twist the ends closed
  • Place tightly wrapped log in Instant Pot and cover with 6 cups water: manual setting for 10 minute (can quick release or natural release)
  • To avoid burning your fingers, let the loaf cool for 5 minutes before unwrapping and enjoying
