I had a housemate in college who had spent a year in a commune in San Francisco. She would make homemade seitan occasionally. It was great with barbeque sauce on it. I seem to remember that she used the recipe from The New Farm Cookbook:

I used to make seitan occasionally but could never get it to taste like the restaurants do even w/ mixing seasonings into the dough--found out that they use LOTS of marinades. The price of the commercial stuff is ridiculous, especially that at the time a box of dry gluten cost about $1. Found out since then that I am allergic to wheat, especially durum (the kind used to make good pasta). Not a gluten problem per se; can eat barley just fine.
Good luck--if you can tolerate the wheat go for it.

Peace out,
Mary S.

Interesting,
I am too lazy to do this and would probably just prefer to add lentils or split, dried peas to dishes as your product would probably be used in other dishes anyway.

I hope to try these ways to make seitan. They vary by what spices are used in them. I hope to add nutritional yeast, fennel, flax seeds and italian seasonings. I saw a video where they added molasses to the boiling water for taste, coloring. Plus it's nutritious.

Anyone with advice?
