Hail Seitan

Yesterday I ran to Borders and picked up The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook. It has quite a few recipes that look pretty good, and so this morning we went grocery shopping for a few things to make this week for dinner.

One chapter has a lot of recipes that call for seitan (say-tahn). I'd never heard of it, but after reading about it in Wikipedia I was interested in trying it out. There was a recipe for it in the cookbook, so I grabbed the wheat flour from the cupboard yesterday - and some bugs had taken up residence inside. So I was out of luck. But then this morning I grabbed another bag of wheat flour while we were at the store, and made some seitan today!
