Can anyone recommend a seitan recipe that comes close to the texture of the Gardein "chicken"? Hubby and I sure do like the Gardein, but it's a little expensive (with hubby's appetite!), so would love to find a seitan recipe that would be similar.

Thanks for any help!!!

Hmm, I'm not sure which one would be most like Gardein. I really like the simple seitan recipe from vcon best of the ones I've tried, except I cook it on low 8 hrs in the crockpot. I think the texture is actually better than Gardein that way.

I've read on here a lot of people love the seitan recipes from Terry's Viva Vegan, but I haven't tried them yet.

Gardein is more soy than seitan, so I think it might be hard to recreate in your kitchen. I do think the closest would be one of the steamed recipes since they're more tender than baked or simmered seitan.

The texture isnt the same, but the Vegan Comfort Food chik'n is a great replacement for me. I got hooked on the Gardein strips.

Seitan made from scratch (flour, not vital wheat gluten) that is slow cooked in a crockpot has pretty much the same texture.
