Seitan recipe

On the lookout for a different kind of protein I came across this super simple recipe for making seitan, which I hadn't realized a mere mortal could do. It was posted on postpunkkitchen.com. It takes about 5 minutes to mix the ingredients, then it is baked. It's really tasty.

The only special ingredient it needs is called 'vital wheat gluten' flour; also needs 1/4 cup nutritional yeast. I already had the rest of the ingredients. I like spicy food but this was a bit too spicy for me so next time I will put in less cayenne.

Here is the recipe: Baked seitan log
