Sure! It's from "Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker", one of my favorite cookbooks.
Combine one 6-ounce box seitan quick mix with 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/ 2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Add 1/2 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of tamari and mix well, adding more water if too dry, knead until smooth (takes about 3 minutes) and form into a seitan ball. Place in crock pot.
In a large skillet heat a tablespoon of olive oil over medium high heat and add 2 small sweet yellow onions quartered, 1 pound baby carrots, 1 pound small new potatoes halved (or use sweet potatoes like I did, cut into chunks) cook just to brown and season with salt and pepper. Add to crock pot.
Pour in 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock and 1/4 cup dry red wine, one tablespoon tamari, 2 cloves garlic crushed and 1 teaspoon dried thyme. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
To make a gravy from the cooking liquid, remove the "roast" and veggies, turn the crock pot on high and whisk in one tablespoon of cornstarch blended with 2 tablespoons of water and stir until it thickens. Slice the roast and serve!
(If you don't feel like taking the time to make the roast you can use precooked packaged seitan instead, just add in on top of the veggies.)
