Seitan, or wheat-meat, is a commonly used meat substitute. It is made up of wheat protein, and doesn't taste like much when not flavored. Many vegetarians dislike it because its texture is too meaty.
Lots of people seem to fear making seitan because it takes too long and the kneading process is quite tedious. However, with a few simple tricks, you can quickly make Seitan the easy way, and save money by creating it at home.
Step 1: Ingredients & Tools
You will need:
--Whole Wheat Flour
--Crock Pot / Slow Cooker
NOTE: The Flour and Water need to be in a 2:1 ratio.
This means if you have 2 cups of flour, you'll need 1 cup of water.
The amount of flour and water depends both upon the size of your food processor and how much you want to make. I used slightly more than 2 cups of flour and about a cup of water. These measurements don't need to be very precise.
