2. Some people make seitan completely from scratch, by washing wheat flour dough with water until all the starch dissolves, leaving a high protein gluten behind, or you can buy a bag of vital wheat gluten so at least that part is already done for you. Then you simply mix it with a liquid and cook however you like. You can also buy it already prepared in a variety of flavors and firmness. Have you ever made seitan?

Everything in moderation, of course but for someone wanting to enjoy this meat substitute, for what ever reason may be interested in knowing that seitan contains about 20 grams of protein in each 3-ounce portion, but it is not a complete protein meaning is does not contain all essential amino acids your body requires daily. It is also low in fat as it contains only 1.5 grams of fat in each 3-ounce portion. Would you consider trying seitan as a meat substitute in your diet?
