So here's a way to make *seitan* or gluten as I've known it before that is
really surprisingly tender and not too labor intensive. We serve this at
our lifestyle reconditioning center and it is very popular.
Notice the secret ingredient.
4 c. Instant gluten flour
1/2 c. W.W. Flour
1/2 c. Unbleached white flour
1/2 c. Minute tapioca (secret ingredient; tell everyone!)
4T nutritional yeast
3T Chicken Style Seasoning
3T Garlic powder (whew, pucker up!)
1/4 c. Soy Sauce
3 1/4 c. cold water
Mix all dry ingredients and add all once to the liquid ingredients.
Mix quickly and knead. Shape into two rolls. put in plastic bags and freeze.
They will now be ready for use at a later date. When you want to use them
allow them to thaw a little so you can slice, dice, chop, drop or whatever!
Cook the gluten in this broth:
8 c. Water
1 Large Onion cut in large pieces
Fresh garlic (amount depends on preference and what you are doing later
1/2 c. Soy sauce
4 T Nutritional yeast
3 T Chicken style seasoning
Bring broth to a boil and add gluten, more water can be used if you want
more broth for a stew etc...
From there the sky is the limit.
