Over on I Am The Animal, I wrote about a new seitan recipe I created. The recipe came about because I wanted some spicy asian food, but I didn’t have any sambal or sriracha. So I used lots of red pepper flake.
Here is the recipe: Red Pepper Seitan.
If you have never heard of seitan (pronounced like our favorite arch demon from Christian mythology), it is a dough formed from the gluten of hard winter wheat. The dough is kneaded and then cooked in a special broth.
To serve seitan, it needs to be simmered in a sauce (I like either BBQ sauce or tamari…) The best part is if you put it in a stir fry, you almost can’t tell that its meat.
