Anyone have a good gluten free seitan recipe that works? Thanks.

Mock seitan is possible; i don't know if it's good or not tho

A plastic hutch is no substitute for a mother. Replace dairy, not mothers.

Im curious if bean and rice flour would even come close to creating the same texture. The wheat gluten developes its dense "meaty" texture when kneaded a bit, I dont think the others will do the same. I am still interested in trying it, I'm sure flavorwise it would be good.

Xantham gum is often used in gluten free baking so maybe have a google. Xanthan gum gives dough a stickiness similar to wheat gluten but I don't know what it would be like boiled or whatever you're doing for seitan.

So basically one wants to make an extra dense loaf of gluten free bread, then call it 'gluten free seitan'. Perhaps this will be tasty ......
