This is the THE BEST seitan log I have made to date. It was very moist and flavorful. I chose to omit the cinnamon, cumin and allspice. I added 1 teaspoon of onion powder instead. It was such a huge hit, we ate 2/3 of it for dinner tonight. Thanks for posting a fantastic recipe!

After discovering this recipe on the site, it is now one of the most versatile recipes in my arsenal. Like user veggie_mama, I also omit the cinnamon, cumin, and allspice. I add onion powder in their place. My household enjoys just snacking on the log throughout the day. Its so good! When I make tofu lasagna, I crumble part of the log up and throw it in my vegan "ricotta" mixture. It gives it an extra kick! So many ways to use this recipe in others.

Fabulous! I tripled the recipe, and changed up the spices a bit. I was aiming for a "smoked turkey" tasting substitute. The addition of liquid smoke, onion powder and poultry seasoning helped. I left out the cinnamon, allspice and cumin. I used half tamari, and half Braggs. I ended up slicing this pretty thinly on an electric slicer, and making panini with it and some brie, pesto and baby spinach. Wonderful directions, Ajo, thanks!
