Wow, she's got of a lot of great recipes, and pics!

I've never let seitan dough sit, and never just simmered. I found Vegandads recipe for seitan which uses beans, and steams in foil, then is baked. Very tender and slice-able.


I had problems with buffering so I didn't get the frying part. Is it breaded and fried?

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

Yes, after she boils it she then dips the pieces into flour and fries them. It looks delicious and I have never let the seitan sit before boiling either. I like Vegandad's, I also like Chef Deborah Wolfe's Tofu Kofu a lot.
