      I quite enjoyed this, and it was really easy to make. I see no reason to try one of the more complicated recipes for Seitan. I used my own broth, however, and I will experiment with the flavoring of the dough a bit more in the future to simulate different types. Thanks for posting - I will definitely make this one again!

      Very easy to make! I was quite surprised. We made two batches and froze one. I divided the dough into eight pieces. Once ready to eat one cutlet is more than enough for one person. We cut the cutlets into strips and cooked it in bbq sauce for a bbq "chicken". Really yummy and satisfying!

      Wow. These were fun to make. I have to say I was a little sceptical about how well the recipe would work after I'd created the dough, but once simmered in the broth the dough takes on a spongey almost tofu-like consistency. The cutlets were a little salty though - next time I might try adding a tiny bit little less soy to the broth and/or the dough mix. I used kelpamere (a seaweed type extract) for the tamari, and used water not stock. It was really easy to make this recipe. We served it in a teriyaki stir-fry and it made a great "fake meat" addition to the meal. Great recipe philocrates!
