I had no idea seitan was made from wheat gluten! I've heard a lot about it and I've wanted to try it for quite some time, and now I finally have some recipes to try it with! I really like cooking with tofu, and I've done so for quite some time, but I'm excited to try new alternatives, so this will be exciting. Thansk so much@!

Seitan is one of my favorite products, even more than tofu, the taste is pretty nice and you just have to get used to it, it is very versatile too just like normal meat, thanks for sharing those recipes but I really knew then so I hope you post more soon
