I just made this for dinner tonight. http://www.meatandeggfree.com/gluten-free-seitan.htmlI made the pork sausage variety. Overall, I loved the taste, as did my bean hating husband. They did get a little dry in the reheating stage, so I'm not sure if I need to store them differently or reheat differently. The taste was good enough that I'm willing to work on them though.A few notes on the recipe. Pea flour was impossible to find. I could find unflavored pea protein, but it was $35 for a giant thing of it, and I only needed a tablespoon. I have a vitamix, so I used that to grind dry split peas into a flour. It worked perfectly. I did the same for the teaspoon of mung bean flour. If you don't have a high powered blender or some kind of grinder then this recipe is probably not worth it.DEG
I have some olympian labs pea protein powder which only cost me ~$18. It was supposedly 'vanilla-flavored' but I could not taste any vanilla whatsoever--it tasted more like pea soup, so I didn't reorder (still have some). I see it's now ~$25 at vitacost and bodybuilding.com. Cheaper than spending $35, but I believe the one I got is only a lb. Maybe I'll pull what I have left out of retirement and try this recipe. Thanks for posting it--I have it bookmarked. I've been looking for something like this since my gluten-free journey began with regular homemade seitan (which quickly turned into the food-from-hades).
