Seitan

I made seitan for the first time Thursday. It was easier then I expected and turned out well. I used the recipe from Veganomicon for the super easy seitan or something like that. We used it to make sandwiches and the kids just ate it plain. I didn't take pictures as it really just looked like a small blob of brain. If you've ever bought the seitan in the package, it looked just like that but tasted better and the texture was a bit softer. I'm glad I'm putting my organic wheat gluten to good use, plus I couldn't stand to spend $6 on that blob they sell in the store, what a rip off.

I used to make it every week but then I think I OD'd on the stuff so haven't made any for a while now.
