“This is the seitan recipe I came up with after looking at two fairly popular recipes ( and This recipe makes a nice sized (7 to 8 inches I suppose) sausage like loaf and can probably be easily changed to your taste based on what spices you use. Note: if you want it to be more like the former recipe (like lunch meat) cook it longer (30-45 mins steaming, 45 mins baking), if you're looking for a nice ground beef substitute 30-35 mins steaming, then another 30-35 mins baking is better. I've used the longer cooked seitan in stuffing and the lesser cooked in dirty rice. Both were thoroughly enjoyed by all involved! I hope you enjoy it too!”
