Ok, I have been surfing the net and this forum for an hour now and I am no closer to a collection of seitan recipes than I was when I started.<br><br>
Would everyone mind posting their favorite seitan recipes or links here????? I wouldn't even mind a good book recommendation. I can find books about cooking <b>with</b> seitan but not actually cooking the seitan itself.<br><br>
Thanks!!!

Do you mean making the actual seitan? or making a dish with seitan in it?<br><br>
For making the actual product, I have a book called <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FVegetarian-Compass-New-Directions-Cooking%2Fdp%2F0316038431%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1196023754%26sr%3D8-1" target="_blank">The Vegetarian Compass</a> by Karen Hubert Allison which has directions of how to make seitan out of gluten. And the pan toasted rice with orzo recipe is to die for (think Rice-a-Roni) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy"><br><br>
For dishes with seitan, I love it in fajitas with peppers, onions, mushrooms, kale, salsa and whole wheat tortillas.

There's a few different ways you can cook seitan. You can simmer it in broth on the stove top, you can roast it in the oven and either baste it or not baste it and you can roll it up, wrap it in foil like a big bon bon and bake it. You can even fry it and deep fry it (which is what a lot of the stuff you find in cans at the asian grocery store is).<br><br>
My favourite method is baking it, it's a denser not so spongy texture (not that simmered seitan should be spongy) and it's not as easy to mess up. Here are some of my favourites: <a href="http://vegetationramblings.blogspot.com/2007/08/bbq-chicken-rolls.html" target="_blank">http://vegetationramblings.blogspot....ken-rolls.html</a> and <a href="http://vegetationramblings.blogspot.com/2007/04/vegan-cupcakes-make-my-day.html" target="_blank">http://vegetationramblings.blogspot....ke-my-day.html</a> and <a href="http://havecakewilltravel.com/2007/05/09/laurel-hardy-seitan-ogreatness/" target="_blank">http://havecakewilltravel.com/2007/0...an-ogreatness/</a><br><br>
There's a number of links in this post: <a href="http://theppk.com/blog/2007/04/09/seitan-o-greatness-takes-over-the-internet/" target="_blank">http://theppk.com/blog/2007/04/09/se...-the-internet/</a> about the baked one (called Seitan O Greatness)<br><br>
and here is a simmered one by Isa from VwaV. It's the one out of her book and the only one I've ever liked and had any luck with: <a href="http://www.theppk.com/recipes/dbrecipes/index.php?RecipeID=112" target="_blank">http://www.theppk.com/recipes/dbreci...p?RecipeID=112</a><br><br><a href="http://www.bryannaclarkgrogan.com" target="_blank">www.bryannaclarkgrogan.com</a> recipe section has a number of recipes that people rave about too, but I found her seitan too soft and a little mooshy for my liking. Here's one you can try though, you might like it: <a href="http://vegetationramblings.blogspot.com/2007/08/bbq-chicken-rolls.html" target="_blank">http://vegetationramblings.blogspot....ken-rolls.html</a><br><br>
I think I linked to one twice but I have to run the DD to school! These should get you started though. Hope you enjoy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I've got the Seitan from Scratch from Fresh from the Vegetarian Slowcooker in my crockpot right now. I'm using it to make barbequed seitan later in the week. I've never made seitan before, so I don't know how this recipe compares to others, but it was really easy to make (it's left to see how it tastes though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)
