A Vegan Gluten Free Pastrami Sandwich is quite likely the most exotic and out there recipe I have tried to date.  I saw an episode on Diners, Drive-in & Dives a while back where Guy stopped in at a vegan sandwich shop in Minneapolis.  Guy was so surprised, and rather impressed with the product, that I had stored the idea in my mind to pull out one day.  It is now one day.

Vegan Gluten Free Pastrami

Before I share more about making this vegan pastrami, I have to share how wimpy my wife and oldest son were and how cool my youngest son was.  My youngest son was home from college on winter break.  He came downstairs on Sunday after sleeping in and said what’s for lunch.  I am a short order cook in my house and I am happy to feed my family’s tummys.  I told Nate what I made and that I was serving it in a sandwich.  He said OK.  We both thought it was “not bad”.  My wife and typically food adventuresome oldest son would not even take a taste.  I made the mistake of telling them it was vegan.  I should have just said I made homemade pastrami.

In all candor, I do not know if I will make this again.  I need some other people to want to eat it.  Actually, I may make it again.  We have a good friend that is vegan.  Every once in a while, following a swim meet, my wife invites him back to the house to eat with us which gives me a chance to come up with a vegan recipe.  I will want to try this idea on someone who would really appreciate it.  I served this pastrami in a sandwich.  It had the perfect texture for a sandwich.  I needed a knife to cut it and it definitely was reminiscent of cutting a salami – not hard salami.  What do you think?  Does the look and way I have it laid out on the cutting board fool you into thinking this is real meat?

Instructions

  1. Place the gluten free flour, nutritional yeast flakes, and the seasonings in a large mixing bowl, and stir them together. Mix the liquids in a small bowl. Pour the liquids into the dry ingredients, and mix them thoroughly. You will end up with a large, firm mass in the bowl.

    Knead the mass directly in the mixing bowl for about a minute to make sure it is well blended. Longer kneading will change the texture, and you may want to experiment with this later.  Form the mixture into one smooth log. Wrap the log in plastic wrap twisting both ends tightly.  Then, wrap the log tightly in silver foil. Place on a dry baking sheet.

    Bake the “pastrami” for 1 1/2 hours. When done, unwrap the pastrami, transfer it to a cooling rack, and let it cool thoroughly. When completely cool, wrap the pastrami tightly in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge overnight or longer before eating. Slice into paper-thin rounds.

    Serve and enjoy!
