Summary: Seitan is a very popular meat substitute, that is for people who tolerate gluten well.
It is made by mixing wheat gluten (extracted from wheat flour) with water into a dough, shaping the dough and then boiling or baking it. Once cooked and cooled, the Seitan can be sliced or cubed, and then prepared as you would prepare tofu or texturised vegetable protein.
Seitan is super versatile in that it absorbs the flavour of any seasonings you add to it, or any sauce you cook it in or serve it with.
I like this basic recipe where I simply flavour the Seitan with freshly chopped onion (or onion powder if kneading the dough by hand because it can be difficult for the dough to hold the onion pieces if kneaded by hand) and garlic powder, nutritional yeast, chilli and black pepper ; I then boil it in a broth made with vegetable bouillon, onion, garlic and bay leaves.
