I've loved every yummy bite of several variations on this:

http://www.theppk.com/2009/11/homemade-s
eitan/

The version in their book, The Veganomicon is slightly different, calling for grated lemon peel instead of lemon juice. I usually use a little less garlic than they call for. I've used Pacific Natural Foods Organic Mushroom broth for the 1/2 c that gets mixed in and it gives it a satisfying taste. I used just 1 tbls of nutritional yeast this time, and that was fine.

I had this for dinner tonight, sliced and sauteed, over spaghetti squash, with lemon juice and capers. Really a good dinner for under 350 calories, with 35 grams of protein.

Did you make it? What did you think?

I LOVE they taste/texture, but found out I'm gluten sensitive after I'd made this a few times. emoticon

This recipe makes great "chickenless nonMcNuggets" if you bread them (panko is best) and fry them in coconut oil!

You are worth it!

Thank you so much! I'll try it out, and thank you for the tip! I would have ended up going to whole foods and spending a small fortune on the vital wheat gluten!

This one is YUMMMY: caloriecount.about.com/basic-seitan-makes-
4-pounds-recipe-r129512


I made it from the REAL FOOD DAILY COOKBOOK and have eaten in the author's restaurant, also. It is very "chicken-y."

Also, the "360 g" of vital wheat gluten = 3 cups. You don't have to go to a health food store to find it--WalMart has it by the flours for cheap.
