Meat Substitues…Seitan

on February 24, 2012

Another common ingredient you will find in many cookbooks as a meat substitute is “Seitan” or “Wheat Meat”.  Seitan is essentially wheat gluten.  It is high in protein and has the texture and look of meat when cooked making it a popular choice in many recipes.  It can be made at home adding different seasoning to get different tastes. It can be shaped into many sizes allowing only your imagination to hold you back.


If you spend a few minutes online, you can find all sorts of recipes to make your own seitan.  If you are not up to the task, it is becoming easier to find in health food sections and health food stores.
