I ordered a box, and now I don't know what to do with it. It's a lot meatier than I expected. Not sure that I like that. Can I make something like sausage or bacon with it?

I've seen some recipes for seitan sausage, sure. I bet you could Google and find some. I'm a seitan fan, personally It works well in fajitas, and especially for BBQ.

I love seitan. My favorite way to cook it is to substitute minced seitan (I ran it through my food processor) to make faux kheema matar (spiced mince with peas):


I've also made it using broad beans instead of peas, and its out of this world. I'm not too keen on overly meaty tasting dishes, and this just tasted good: its the perfect thing to make for the somewhat blustery weather we've been having in the UK, when you need something warmy and spicy. Mmm. Ok, now I have to make this for dinner tonight

We used it in stew, stir-fry, Thai curry dishes, chow mein, yakisoba, with rice and any place else one might use chunks of chicken, beef or pork.

Unfortunately my wife recently found out she can't have wheat, so on more seiten for us. I might have it when I'm out to eat, but I'll only have it at home when she's gone. We both loved it, so I don't want to remind her of what she can't have.
