It's been a while since I've made seitan, but I did it the other night. I mix water, soy and the gluten, let it sit in a warm place, then stretched and cut it into small discs about the size of a quarter. I boiled these small pieces in a mix of veggie broth, soy and ginger - side note, they became enormous! In fact I turned my back to the pot to chop veggies and suddenly I heard noises... it was the pieces of seitan popping out of the pot onto the floor like popcorn! lol. I transferred everything to a much bigger pot and all was well. Anyway they boiled for ~30 minutes while I chopped and sauteed onion, summer squash, zucchini and peppers, and then I added the seitan along with some soy sauce and fresh ginger. Delicious! Served it with brown rice and some broccoli raab and my newly vegan teen pronounced it "like a weird wrinkly tofu" but enjoyed the flavor. Definitely a make again. I had forgotten that a serving of vital wheat gluten is 21 grams for 1/4 cup, and that amount goes a long way.

Both. It's easy enough to make. Sometimes I buy it when travelling or when I see something I'd like to try to reverse engineer! Good for making you feel full.

Iím new to the vegan life. Do you eat seitan? Do you make it or buy it? How do you use it?

People! read the INGREDIENTS
