I remember the first time I made seitan, almost a decade ago. I did it old-school style by washing flour. In short, it didn’t turn out well and I didn’t try again until recently.
I was inspired by this BBQ seitan recipe from the Post Punk Kitchen blog. Of course, you already need a pound of seitan to make this, so I used the Simple Seitan recipe from Veganomicon. It’s crazy how easy it is, especially since it calls for gluten flour — which means no flour washing required.
The cold sesame noodles, I’m almost embarrassed to admit, is actually a Martha Stewart recipe that an office person suggested to me years ago. It’s a great recipe for summer when it’s too hot and all you can muster is boiling water for pasta. I just use my food processor to quickly slice up veggies and make the sauce.
These two recipes combined made for a really nice dinner (with work lunch leftovers). It’s ridiculous how easy it was. Try it!
