I shredded the seitan, sauteed with onions and mixed in a bag of mixed veggies. Made gravy with the cooking broth and the starch I saved from washing.
Not sure I think washing flour is worth it- but it is cool to use the starch it leaves! Super cheap though, Aldi flour is only $1.20 for 5 lb

Tonight we are having a quinoa salad with cucumber and tomato and fresh herbs and red onion and lemon juice and olive oil. We will have it with "beef" sausages and a glass of red.

I really need to make some seitan. I do seem to like cooking more and more...I think it’s because I’m home a lot now, and not working. So I’m finding I have a “little” bit more ambition. I never really liked the seitan that I made so I need to keep trying until I get it just right. Maybe one of those no knead roasts would work for me.

What do you add to it? I found I dislike chickpea flour! That was how I started making seitans, and the only reason I kept up was my son really liked it. I found I love adding tofu to the wet mix, and when I made sausages with the chickpea flour again it was "eureka! that's what I don't like!"
I just blend some tofu with enough water and seasoning and then mix in the vwg and let rest

So I bought some TVP back when the pandemic started, thinking it would make a good meal, and it also lasts dry in the cupboard for a long time. So today I decided to try some in a Sloppy Joe like recipe with TVP. Sure is yummy.

That was lunch, but leftovers for dinner. I might add some vegan cheese and throw it under the broiler. I found a new nut cheese a while back from a company called Parmela Creamery. Their aged cheddar slices are so good! I've tried several of their other cheeses as well and they're all good. These folks got it right!

I know. I bought it. And hated it lol. It’s just not necessary. It’s basically whipping coconut cream. If I need whipped cream I’d rather buy the coco whip or Soyatoo.

I do add tofu. I’m not sure what I don’t like about it. Sometimes it might be the particular broth I use. Mostly I think it’s the chewy bready texture. I can’t seem to get a nice dense loaf. I have tried Both simmering it on the stove and also wrapping it and baking. I’m going to try again.

Have you wrapped and steamed over water?

This is the method I use for vegan sausages. The texture and flavor come out great. I have not tried to make just regular seitan this way, but I should give it a whirl. I'm thinking patties might work well this way.
