Sorry if this has been discussed before. I've tried searching to find this, but haven't been able to.
Recently I picked up some vital wheat gluten to make some homemade veggie burgers (a most excellent recipe
) and was contemplating trying my hand at homemade seitan.
The thing is, I've yet to meet a seitan whose texture I like. It seems like seitan is always trying to be meat and I became a vegetarian because I really don't like meat, especially it's texture. I love tempeh and find its texture to be very satisfying. I've had tempeh prepared in various degrees of cooked down from fresh to crispy and always like it. Seitan however tends to have a too chewy texture that turns me off.
So is there a homemade seitan recipe out there that isn't too meaty or springy?
