Seitan – and I don’t mean the guy with horns

is made from vital gluten flour and is used as a protein.  It contains 24 grams of protein per 6 ounce serving.  It is super easy to make and can be frozen for several months. There are many different recipes available for the broth.  This is the one we use.

This recipe makes enough for several servings and some extra to freeze.
2 Cups Vital Wheat Gluten Flour
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Ginger Powder (optional, I just really like it)
2 Cups water

3 Cubes of Not-Chick’n bouillon (or any flavor you choose)
6 Cups of water


*Bring 6 cups water and bouillon to a boil.
*Meanwhile mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl
*Add water and stir until dough is sponge-like
*Knead dough briefly to make tougher
*Divide dough into four balls and roll into logs about 1-2″ thick(they will plump significantly when cooked)
*Add to boiling water.  Turn down heat and cover.  Simmer for about 1 hour

*Drain and use as your protein for anything from stir fry to BBQ sandwiches.

*Will post a new recipe tomorrow for Carolina Style BBQ with Seitan
