So here is my first attempt from Terry Hope Romero’s new book Viva Vegan! I am so excited to finally have this book in my possession. It was one of the two cookbooks that were delivered to our apartment the day after we left Brooklyn. Thankfully Kass held on to it until I was able to retrieve it on my recent trip.
She has two basic recipes in the book for seitan. Steamed Red Seitan for beefy recipes, and Steamed White Seitan for chicken and pork recipes. It was fairly easy to make, though I did let my purple kitchen-aid do the work. The only thing I changed was I added about 1/3 c. more vital wheat gluten flour because it was too sticky to even make a dough ball. This gives you four seitan loaves which you can use two at a time in lots of included recipes. I only prepared and steamed it, and put it in the fridge. I’ll have to update when I use it in a recipe. Regardless, it smelled divine, and I can’t wait to try it! I think i’m using it to make some Ropa Vieja tomorrow : )
