Seitan
Posted Monday, September 3, 2012 at 10:34 AM

I am looking for a meat replacement that tastes good to me. I've been reading a lot about Seitan. Has anyone ever tried it? Is it something you make or something you buy? Confused

This is the best thing I have ever tasted! I hope you are not gluten sensitive. I first found it on another site, but they took it down because there was an error in the quantities. I see that Oprah has fixed it! This is truly delicious.

Seitan definitely has a chewy, meaty texture. You can buy seitan at the market. However, I know people who make it - a very inexpensive way to enjoy seitan. I personally do not have a recipe other than what I see when I Google it. Anyone have a favorite seitan recipe?

I can buy Vital gluten flour in my little town, so it might be where you are too. Otherwise, it is the internet!

you can make it or buy it. watch the ingredients - can have a lot of sodium and assorted other 'stuff' in some of the brands. Plus, it can get expensive to buy, so if you find you like it, check out those already listed resources to make your own. But, we've found that we prefer chopped mushrooms (portabellas for a really meat-like toothiness).

Hello All, Deb R...Just got my Bean Stew on to simmer.It's looks and smells good.

I've made my own seitan with high vital gluten flour and I'm still experementing.That way I know exactly what goes into it. There are many alternative ways and ingredients and spices seem like a personal choice in the wet and dry mixture of ingredients.

I also love marinated portabellas and sometimes dehydrate them.

I'm saving all my veggie and fruit peelings on the 21 day kickstart for a small wild fox who comes to the garden each evening.I saw him/her yesterday in the moonlight on the porch.. very exciting!

we save our veggie peelings (with the exception of celery tops) to make soup stock. Hubby found that the celery tops made the stock more bitter than he liked so those stay out. Now that we're into Sept, he'll be making stock about once a month and freezing it in portion size containers because we do soup at least once a week, if not more often, when the weather is cool. Loved looking through the recipes this go-round because I didn't use the menus at all last kickstart and I see there are a bunch of new ideas since the last time I actually looked at the menus.

Debby at Happy Healthy long life has a recipe for a seitan brisket here http://www.happyhealthylonglife.com/happy_healthy_long_life/2012/03/happy-st-patricks-day-how-about-a-seitan-reuben-sandwich.html

Hi DebR

I like the idea of portion sized containers of stock.I've frozen stock before and veggie pulp and smoothie left overs in Ice cube trays to add to meals or smoothies.

I also made two days almond milk and soaked chickpeas and black beans overnight and cooked and portioned them for the freezer today.Both my hubby and I enjoy cooking and seeing how the recipes turn out.

We've called the young fox 'Kickstart'seems sorta appropriate seeing as he's or she's on the same diet with all the peelings and some left over treats.I'm expecting his/her health will surley improve!!!

We generally do several days' worth of beans - last night put the black beans on to soak and they got cooked up this morning - tonight is nachos, we'll probably have beans and rice later in the week, etc. Last Friday was soaking chickpeas for several batches of hummus over the weekend plus a quinoa chickpea chard "pilaf" type dinner. Having cooked chickpeas around is a handy snack - I'll put 1/2 cup or so in a small bowl and sprinkle with just a bit of sea salt or kosher salt and munch them like peanuts.

Hi DebR

I love Quinoa and also chick peas to snack on, cooked or baked. The Incas saw Quinoa as a sacred food and it's one of my favourite and most perfet sources of protiens.I'm thinking of having some for lunch with a raw tomato,garlic, red pepper and bazil marinade and salad which I really enjoy,instead of the blue corn chips.We're not big corn chip eaters and I couldn't find blue variety in Uk stores.Oh how I miss Whole foods in United States where we lived for several years.

It's 9:43 pm in Uk and The little fox has already been to eat his kickstart peelings. I heard the dogs bark and I've peeped outside and they're all gone.One happy little fella!!
