Basic Seitan - Chicken Flavor
60 mins (prep 10, cooking 50)
12 ingredients
4 servings
I have been making seitan quite a bit lately, and have been trying various cooking methods (baking, steaming and now simmering). One of the more difficult methods as far as consistancy goes, (so I've read), is simmered seitan. The following recipe I found in La Dolce Vegan cookbook, and it sounded so simple and mistake proof, I had to try it. I have now conquered my fear of simering seitan in broth!! Recipe can be doubled, and the pieces can be cut into nuggets, strips or cutlet sized pieces.
