I like Isa Chandra Moskowitz's recipes from theppk.com. for seitan. She has quite a few. I especially like her Italian Sausage recipe and her stuffed recipe for Thanksgiving.

The Italian sausage is really pretty easy you mash the beans with a fork add spices, mix in the liquid and vital wheat gluten, kneed a minute, divide, wrap them up in foil and then steam for 40 minutes.

I double the recipe and freeze them. They are actually best after they have been refrigerated sliced and then sautéed or rewarmed in a pan.

IMVEGAN... very cool! I've made seitan, but wow the process is so daunting. Do you have a secret that makes it any easier? I try to do mainly veggies and beans, but my kids like seitan.

Thanks Will, everyone has to figure out where their line is. For example I have no trouble with Tofu and soy milks, tempeh etc, but will only eat seitan and faux meats at restaurants V E R Y rarely. and never at home because I can make them myself. I don't use TVP ever because of the hexane and It is uber processed and will not use soy curls because that is one step too processed for me.

I can make my own seitan, vegan sausage, tofurkey etc. easily and have no problem eating those because I can control the ingredients from whole foods.

I prefer to make my own veggie burgers instead of buying them for the same reason. I find that they taste better too. It is also very easy to make my own vegan chick'n nuggets, falafel and just about anything I want to eat.

The only processed junk food I regularly purchase is for my hubby. He doesn't like corn chips made from tortillas so I buy Tostitos baked corn chips for him. He eats about a bag a month.

Hey Gang,
I just read an article outlining some of the toxins and misleading labels for many canned and processed foods. This is great enticement to eat whole foods. I'm sure you all know most of this. Even though I don't eat them, the one about marashino cherries was a surprise. Makes me glad I don't eat them. Anyhow, check out the article:
