Instructions
  1. Bring to a boil the water for the broth, molasses and soy sauce.



    Mix together the gluten flour and spices. Add water to mixture and stir into a sponge-like dough. This should not be excessively wet. Knead dough a minute to make dough tougher and more elastic. Cut into 2 x 2 inch pieces and place into boiling broth. Cook in broth for about 1 hour, lowering heat as needed. Drain and use seitan for a stir-fry, sandwiches, stews and more.



    Makes 12 servings.



    *Freeze drained broth for future use if desired.

    My 2 cups of gluten only needed ~1.5 cups water. Watch out, these will grow significantly and may overcrowd your pot. Next time I will err on the side of a larger pot.

    They look quite a lot like meat and have a nice flavor, although I think I will try adjusting the seasoning next time. Our intent is to crumble this seitan in the food processor, mix in sausage spices, then fry with onions for breakfast burritos.
