It's a Bird, It's a Cow...No! It's Seitan!
What the heck is seitan (say-tahn), anyway?! It's the Japanese term for cooked wheat gluten, which is high in protein and low in fat and like tofu, takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it in. To me, it has the same taste and texture as chicken but has 22 grams of protein and only 1.5 grams of fat per serving!! Ingredients: Water, Wheat Gluten, Soy Sauce (Water, Soybeans, Wheat, Salt), Garbanzo Bean Flour, Soy Flour, Lime Juice Concentrate, Honey, Cumin, Granulated Garlic, Xanthan Gum, Natural Liquid Smoke, Cayenne Pepper.
Westsoy makes a great seitan and it's so easy to cook up and absolutely delicious without the fat and sodium and other ickies that meat offers. Give it a try!
