Seitan is a high-protein, low-fat vegan food made from wheat gluten.

Video Tutorial for Simple Savory Seitan for Sandwiches

 
This simple savory seitan loaf is ideal for slicing up and stuffing into sandwiches or chopping into chunks and stir-frying. It’s a good substitute for store-bought tofurky slices. I quite like the oven roasted Tofurky slices but I don’t love spending $4 a pack and being responsible for all that packaging.
