Seitan is a fantastic meat alternative. Made from protein-rich wheat gluten, it is both tasty and nutritious. You can do just about anything with seitan from sandwiches to stir fries and this recipe is the best I have ever made.
If you’re concerned about heating up plastic wrap, you can skip this step, it is mainly to help the seitan keep its shape.
