Hail SEITAN!

No but seriously, I didn’t even realize that seitan was a thing that I could make from SCRATCH. A couple of pantry staples + some vital wheat gluten and you’re good to go. We made this one with the help of a friend and we were all pretty amazed at the elasticity of the dough – it’s no small wonder, as vital wheat gluten is basically flour that has had all the starch removed, and all that is left is the protein-packed elastic goodness that works it’s way into meat substitutes.
