Pretty much the only essential ingredient to making your own seitan is vital wheat gluten. You make a broth of whatever flavors you want the seitan to have, use it to moisten the wheat gluten enough to knead it like bread (it will be springy yet mushy), make it into a little roll or loaf, cut into pieces (make them bigger than you want the final product to be, because it shrinks in the next step), then simmer in the original broth for half an hour or so. It's a lot cheaper than the store-bought stuff, too. (As usual, right?)

yep! i have hemp powder (warrior brand, methinks!) and i've tried seitan, however most seitan comes drenched in soy sauce. soy sauce gives me a horrible reaction-- everything from skin break outs to headahces to stomach/bowl issues. wish i could eat it. can't seem to find any "plain" seitan. does anyone know if such a thing exists? i've checked whole foods numerous times but every time i read the ingredients it has soy.

I was going to ask the same thing, Eydie. Also, if you do smoothies and protein shakes, try hemp. I don't envy you not being able to eat legumes, but you sound determined to make it work, so good luck!

Can you have wheat? If so, you can have seitan, super high in protein, and really easy to make.

the title basically says why i became a vegetarian. i would be a vegan if i didn't have food sensitivity to legumes (i.e. soy, nuts, beans, etc.). it's very hard finding food to eat when i have to cut out all legumes as well as meat. i try not to rely on dairy/eggs (i don't even like eggs), but i find that i have to sneak that in almost every day so i don't feel like my body is being deprived nutrients.

anyway, i hope to find some yummy recipes here that i can use on my weight loss journey and meet some cool people as well.

l8r! :)
