Seitan - Seitan is a fantastic meat alternative. Made from protein-rich wheat gluten, it is both tasty and nutritious. You can do just about anything with seitan from sandwiches to stir fries and this recipe is the best I have ever made. If you're concerned about heating up plastic wrap, you can skip this step, it is mainly to help the seitan keep its shape. Or use BPA and phthalates free, microwave safe plastic wrap.
