Hail seitan! seriously though, learning and making tons of seitan during my plant-based journey has really helped out a lot. my one rule about being plant-based was making sure that i still ate relatively the same meals as if i wasn't plant based. that way, the transition wasn't brutal and filled with lettuce like i thought it would be. i found more creative ways to play with my vegetables and flavors to make new amazing meals with different takes on my weekly favorites.
understand that most people don't have a lot of time to hang out in the kitchen and just make things. see, that in that sense, i am fortunate to have that kind of time. so i totally get it when people see foodporn pictures and go: "well, that must have took at least 2 hours to make." sometimes it does take a long time but more often it's doesn't.
the real concern about seitan is not how long it takes to make the monk meat, it's all about the: gluten.
people with celiac disease stay away from the seitan because the autoimmune system fights gluten proteins as if it was foreign bacteria and attacks an enzyme in digestive tract that breaks down the gluten which causes severe complications for those with celiac disease and even those who just are gluten intolerant.
being gluten intolerant and vegan might pose to be a difficult situation for some, because gluten can be sneaked into a lot of different things just like milk.
i'll try my best to incorporate more gluten-free plant-based meals but for now, let me just praise this slice of sage and thyme seitan covered in a polynesian glaze.
i think after a few more posts i'll have enough recipes under my star wars apron to start a real food blog. .
do you cook with seitan? do you like making it or buying it premade? .
