    VegSocialWorker's Note:

    Although this recipe is for plain seitan to use in other recipes, it also tastes great on it's own. From the Real Food Daily Cookbook by Ann Gentry. The instructions say to cut the loaf into quarters after it has cooled, and each piece will be around 1 lb (about the size needed for an average recipe). Wrap the extra pieces well and freeze until needed.
