I made a batch of Seitan originally intending on using a recipe from Vegan on the Cheap that has sauerkraut, tomatoes, mushrooms etc... but now that recipe isn't looking so appealing anymore, plus I realized I'm missing quite a few of the ingredients.

What are some of your favorite dishes to make with seitan? Do you think I could just fry up some seitan & sauerkraut or would that be bland or taste bad?

You could, or you could use the seitan and mushrooms and make salisbury seitan. Or you could make a nice hearty seitan stew by browning the seitan, adding the mushrooms, some onions, carrots, potatoes, and then add some broth, maybe some tomatoes, a bay leaf, some thyme, and thicken it with a corn starch slurry and serve it over noodles! Or serve with biscuits. Mmm... biscuits...

Oh the mushrooms are one of the ingredients that I am missing! (the store was out of button mushrooms and only had the really expensive variety so I skipped them) I went to the store specifically to get the ingredients for that recipe, left without everything I needed but still spent $85 on who knows what. Argh. The seitan recipe I used was yours from your how-to and I used the cheesecloth cooking method. So I've got some nice dense seitan and I don't know what I am going to use it for.

I love to fry it up in a little oil and soy sauce then add to rice with veggies. Look at pg. 85 in Vegan on the Cheap, you can slice your seitan and use it like the cutlets in her suggestions. Cut in thin strips, brown and make fajitas. However, Megan has me thinking biscuits....and gravy...oooooo, gravy! Google Tofu and Sprouts. She is part of the Vegan MoFo challenge and she is doing 30 days of gravy. Vegan Dad has a lot of seitan suggestions on his blog too.

I second seitan buffalo "wings." I made them for the first time on Sunday and they came out fantastic. I also like to make fajitas and stir-fries with it. I've not yet tried a stew, but that sounds like a great idea.

Chop it up and dump it in chili. The universal answer to "what should I do with ..."

I like chili.

Okay I will say that I would LOVE the seitan buffalo wing recipe if anyone has it!

As for the seitan I had, I ended up doing a few different things with it.

One night I just cut it up and dipped in ketsup! Haha. It was good!

The next night I put it in a skillet with some mushrooms, onions and a little bit of white wine - that was yummy,

and then last night I added it to spaghetti sauce along with some more sauteed mushrooms. (I LOVE sauteed mushrooms =)

And now the seitan is gone.

I had some left over from another meal, so I cut it up, mixed it with linguine, added a hot and spicy sauce and heated it up in the microwave. Yummy!

I've just ordered 3.5 kgs of vital wheat gluten flour - enough to make 35 meals for 3/4 people, by my reckoning!! I'm looking forward to a lot more experimentation with it....

I was lazy and used a bottled buffalo wing sauce, but I made some vegan ranch to make up for it. omgggzzzz.

Maybe I'll make these again soon. I'm pretty much drooling thinking about it.

It's a bit time consuming, but soooo worth it.
