A plant-based Christmas is easy to prepare! This spicy protein rich seitan “ham” with a creamy cashew butter based mustard sauce is the perfect star of the Christmas table.


4 dl gluten flour 

2 dl Foodin chickpea flour 

1,5 tbsp Foodin BBQ spice 

1,5 tbsp Foodin paprika spice 

1 tsp garlic powder 

¼ tsp black pepper 

2 tsp salt 

3 dl water 

0,5 dl Foodin Extra Virgin olive oil 

2 tbsp Foodin umami sauce 

Mustard sauce 

3 tbsp Foodin cashew butter 

2 tsp dijon mustard 

¼ tsp salt 

0,5 dl water (or more if you want the sauce thinner) 

For serving (optional) 

Fresh parsley 

Lingonberries or cranberries (frozen) 


Preheat the oven to 175 C. 

In a bowl, mix the gluten flour, chickpea flour and all the spices. Add the water, oil and the Foodin umami sauce. 

Knead the dough with your hands for a few minutes and shape it into a long round “ham”. Wrap the seitan “ham” into aluminum foil and place it on a baking dish.  

Cook it in the oven for 45-50 minutes. Check the seitan after 40 minutes of cooking so that it doesn’t get too dry. 

Mix the mustard sauce ingredients in a bowl with a little whisk. 

Serve the seitan sliced with the creamy mustard sauce. 

You can serve the seitan on a bead of parsley and lingonberries or cranberries for a festive look.
