    Making home made seitan? (veggie food)

    Making home made seitan? (veggie food) 11th Feb 09 at 11:02 PM
    I bought a pack of fresh seitan today from the health food shop. It's devilishly delish, but at about 2.70 for a smallish steak, it's not very old style. (sorry for the dreadful pun ) ... (have fixed prob with link now)

    Just wondering if any of you veggie Old Stylers have ever had a go at making your own. My friends tried to make some once, and they said it came out really strangely spongy, so I'm a bit apprehensive about having a go.

    What sort of flour should I use? Is the strong white bread making flour the best? Is it possible to buy Vital Wheat Gluten flour anywhere in London/ the south? (Otherwise will have to pester relatives in America to bring some over next time!) What are the best flavourings to use for the broth?

    I'd love to be able to make the chickpea cutlets in the Veganomicon cookbook...

    Sorry, so many questions... please throw any tips and encouragement my way! Thanks!
