Recipe adapted from this site: //www.theppk.com/2009/11/homemade-seitan/
I was surprised nobody uploaded a seitan recipe before. We use the TMX kneading function to make seitan all the time. Great alternative to those pre-packaged vegetarian chicken schnitzels.
You cannot substitute any other type of flour for the gluten flour, IT WILL NOT WORK, so do not try!!!!
The high gluten level is what gives it a meaty texture.
