Spicy Hot Seitan…

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.
