Top Review by Catrin

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!
