Seitan Recipe

Setian is wheat gluten, made of whole-wheat flour and water. We use Bob’s Red Mill “Vital Wheat Gluten”. Wheat gluten is easy to digest, and has a high protein content, making it a healthy addition to a vegetarian diet. It has a chewy, meat-like texture and can be boiled, baked, stir-fried, sliced for sandwiches or added to soups and stews. Though it can be found at natural food stores and some supermarkets, homemade seitan is less expensive and tastes a lot better. Look for wheat gluten flour at your local natural food store.
