For smoky flavour use mesquite powder. Any shop with a decent range of spices should have it. Or a Mexican specialty grocery.

mozel tov. I was thinking today I haven't made seitan in a while.

try smoked paprika - though it may give it a slight red hue.

Next time I will use much less salt. I used a tomato paste in this mix, but next time I think I will try something more savory.

i would like to get a smoky flavor in it but adding liquid smoke is a bit too much like adding prducts whose names I can't pronounce.(like in most prcessed foods).

Anyone know of a natural smoky flavoring?

When the weather gets warmer, I might try a natural smoking process on some of it.

It is easy to make but if you are near a metropolitan area they should have it in the healtfood section of the most grocery stores, in a cooler case.

In almost any supermarket, in the cooler freezer cases, you can find boca burgers, morning star products and the like

I have never made it. Where do you find it? Health food stores?

Good for you! It was a revelation to me how easy is is to make seitan and now I'd never dream of buying it already made and it freezes beautifully!

I finally got out my ingredients and Made seitan (wheat gluten) patties today. I was trying for a sausage like flavor. I got carried away with the seasonings, especially the salt. The texture came out about as I expected it but next time I will cut back on seasonings and add them in sauces or gravies instead.

I had one recipe for baked seitan and one for boiled. I used the ingredients for the baked recipe but cooked it in broth instead of backing. I saved the broth for a future gravy base.

I froze what I didn't eat today, so I will be anxious to see if it handles the freeze/thaw process ok.

Since it is so salty, I will try it with some red beans in a burrito first to see if I can balance out the flavors. Whole wheat tortilla, red beans, brown rice, fresh salsa, lettuce, onion, and maybe a little non-fat yogurt.

Okay, now I'm hungry again..... emoticon
