DIRECTIONS

  • Add garlic powder and ginger to flour and stir.
  • Mix liquids together and add to flour mixture all at once. Mix vigorously with a fork. When it forms a stiff dough knead it 10 to 15 times.
  • Let the dough rest 2 to 5 minutes, then knead it a few more times. Let it rest another 15 minutes. It will be rubbery.
  • Cut gluten into 5 or 6 pieces. Pat out and stretch dough to form into "cutlet" shapes.
  • Combine broth ingredients. Simmer seitan pieces in broth for 30 to 60 minutes. Let seitan cool in the broth.
  • You can use this right away, refrigerate it for up to a week, or freeze it for several months.
