Beth Ferrell Recipe

By Beth Ferrell egordon12020

For those of you a little unfamiliar with Seitan. It's lovingly referred to as the "Wheat meat". It's actually rather tasty and you will find it's a great way to add some variety to your diet.

This recipe is very customizable, but just make sure you make it on a day when you really have a lot of aggression. It needs to be kneaded for a while.
