There's usually on a separate piece of paper, probably folded up
with your order sheet.
Can someone help?
Sure! Here's the directions for the "Chicken":
1 1/2 cups dry mix
1 cup water
oil to taste (I never add this)
Mix all very quickly and thoroughly, being sure that all the dry mix is
moistened. Knead from 3 to 8 minutes. Divide into 18 - 24 balls,
flatten into cutlets and simmer in 8 cups vegetable stock for an hour.
Drain and cool before using.
Can be used in chicken-style salads, enchiladas, and tacos;
marinated for outdoor barbeques; or added to chili, stir-fries, or
Ingredients: Vital wheat gluten, non-soy bean flours, low-salt
vegetarian broth seasonings, HVP with no added MSG.
I usually make mine using a Kitchenaide-type mixer and the
kneading hook. An older recipe I had from a package of Bro.
Pikarski's seitan mix says to let the seitan rest for at least 5 minutes
before forming into shapes. In my case that really helped to cut
down on the stickiness on my hands.
