I finally found a store that sells Seitan. It's local, small health food store. They keep it all frozen (I'm assuming because they don't sell very much so they need it to last as long as possible). I bought some White Wave Chicken Style Seitan and put it in my fridge so it can defrost over the next few days. Does the freezing change the texture or any properties of the seitan at all? I know that freezing tofu can change the texture, so I was just curious if there might be a similar effect (I know tofu is soy, seitan isn't, but maybe). I'm kinda curious how this is going to turn out because it's my first time trying it so I don't know how it's supposed to be. Do you guys have any advice on working with it or what to do with it? I really appreciate any help.

I don't think I've noticed a difference in my frozen seitan. I usually make my own though, and it goes really quickly! If you have Bryanna Clark Grogan's cookbooks, she has really good seitan recipes I like to slice it thinly, dredge it in some flour and brown it in some olive oil and make a nice sauce for it, with spices, wine and veggies. Serve it over rice and yumm.
