This is a modified recipe from PPK. The changes came from AJO, the person who posted Seitan Log on here. I usually just eyeball the spices, so the measurements are just estimations. I highly recommend slicing this up and making a Seitan Dip with it (serve with Au jus broth) or crumble it up in a food processor and add it to chili or tacos.

*Update: I now have been making this seitan log for almost a year, it is by far my favorite seitan recipe and I use it very often. I now flavor it to whatever flavor profile I am looking for. I use a veggie beef or chicken broth powder for the liquid and also poultry seasoning if I'm making chick'n seitan. It's a flexible recipe and I like that the flavor can be easily adapted. Today I am making it into an "italian sausage" so I will be using classic sausage flavorings, fennel seed, some red pepper flakes and italian seasoning. Love this recipe!!

Our family has recently decided to consume much more vegetarian/vegan meals. I made seitan for the first time a few days ago, but the texture of cooking it in water was too spongy, I saw a recipe that was baked instead so I decided to search one out and this is great! My kids really liked it and I think that hubby will too because the texture is dense and not spongy. Very delicious. I only subbed ketchup for the tomato paste, and some basil and oregano for the parsley. Great recipe!

Delish. I made a half log because I didn't have enough vital wheat gluten. A nice change from the first seitan log. I was a little heavy handed on the spices and next time will follow the recipe closer. Even though the log was smaller, I still cooked it for the same amount of time and it worked great. Thanks for posting!

This was my first attempt at making seitan. I am surprised at how easy it was and how much flavor it has. This stuff is great! Thanks for a really nice recipe dana!
