My Seitan is simmering away. I hope it turns out. I used a recipe in my Bittman cookbook, he said to use 6 cups water + 1/3 cup soy sauce to boil it in. Have any of you guys made Seitan before? I guess I'll just cut some up and eat it with brown rice. I've also heard you can brush some oil on top and bake it.

For those of you who don't know, seitan is also known as "wheat meat". It's made from gluten flour, it's around 85% protein. You may have seen it as "mock duck" before.

Why not? I like white rice better, but it seems to make my face break out.

that can't be healthy

If you aren't celiac or gluten intolerant, there's no harm in seitan. It's protein is equivalent to chicken minus the fat.

Oh, I didn't realise but I've had seitan before. I used to get these free at the Chinese supermarket but I found them kind of gross. I just thought they were kind of chewy with only the flavour of the sauce. I would fry it up some vegetables to make it a bit more interesting if I were you - probably any pak choi variant.

Yea true. I think I'm going to bake it, it'll probably be much nicer that way. It's very rubbery.

I make it, it's a funny texture bu not bad at all when seasoned properly. I also made seitan sausages by boiling them in (that wrapping nylon that I don't know how's called in english).

Ah, interesting. Mine needs work for sure.

OP here, my seitan turned out pretty damn rubbery and very bland, I guess I should have simmered for another 15 minutes or so, but it had already been in there for an hour.
>>
>>7191509
you may actually find that simmering it more gently or for a shorter time (say 45 minutes) gets you a nicer texture
>>
>>7191515
I'll keep that in mind, if I ever decide to make this stuff again. I really want to try those chinese cans seen here >>7190839 just to see what other seitan is like.
>>
>>7191517
you should definitely have another shot, it took me several tries to get the right level of seasoning for my taste and a texture that I found palatable
