I found this receipe. Has anyone ever tried this or something like it?

Gluten Free Seitan AKA The Non-Wheat Meat
½ bean flour
½ rice flour
¼ tapioca starch
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp salt
Paprika
Cumin
Pepper
Dehydrated onions

1/3 cup water or stock
¼ cup. Ketchup or tomato paste
2 tbsp dairy free margarine
2 tbsp Braggs

If you freeze your flours, make sure they all come to room temperature before you begin. Stir together the flours, starch, and yeast with spices. Make the usual well and add the margarine, ketchup or tomato paste, water or stock and Braggs. Stir to combine. You should begin to obtain a pie dough like state. If it feels too dry then add a bit more water.

Preheat your oven to 350.
Knead for 2 to 3 minutes then let it rest for 5. Shape as desired - roll, flat, etc. and cover with oiled or nonstick tin foil. Bake for 15 to 30 minutes. If a crisp exterior is desired, remove the dough from the oven early and finish baking uncovered.
Let cool and savor the pleasure of seitan - sort of - once again!

Wow! I would never have imagined a GF seitan!

I'm seriously waiting for someone to try this before I go out and buy a bunch of new flours.

Would chickpea flour count as "bean flour"? (ETA: nm. I just read the original post which does say to use chickpea flour)

Check out this site that has a bunch of gf vegan "sausages"

I am so intrigued by this.. The next time I goto the ethnic grocery store, I'll get some tapioca flour and try this... because if it works.. well, that would be awesome!

I completely forgot if I re-registered when the new boards came up.

Anyway, I've got this in the oven now. I'll let you all know how it turns out. It's sort of... a paste so I had to manage it more like a thick paste. It wasn't kneadable by hand or anything. I've got it in for 25 minutes, as I'm thinking that may get it to stiffen a bit.

Verdict: Gross.

Not only does it taste terrible, but I baked it for 20 minutes longer than it said to (at 25 minutes it was still super soft on one side). The texture is akin to pasty thick wet bread.

I don't know, maybe I did it wrong. I just can't help but notice that the pictures aren't shown as sliced, either, but apparently it worked out for that person. Even if it did, though the taste would need to be adjusted drastically. I think there's too much tomato paste/ketchup in there.

It was pretty disappointing, especially since when it first came out of the oven it looked just like the log o' greatness and when pressed lightly had the same texture. I may try it again, but without wrapping it in foil, and using less liquids, adjusting the spices a bit.

I've made it a few times and while I have no idea what seitan tastes or feels like, I enjoyed the gf version, I used the wellsphere recipes minus the Braggs.

I'm coming up with my own gf/sf chorizo which I'll post soon too.

Did you fry or cook the sausages afterward? I've made my share of seitan sausages and they need to be cooked after they're steamed. I want so badly for this recipe to turn out!

before I was gluten free I used half gluten and half chickpea flour, so I can see that.

I found a different GF seitan recipe and made it last night. http://www.meatandeggfree.com/gluten-free-seitan.html

I made the pork sausage flavor. I actually made it Monday and let it sit in the fridge overnight to allow the flavors to meld. The flavor was awesome, and my omni husband said it tasted sausagy, but it got a bit dry. I don't know if that's a storage issue. I left them wrapped in the parchment paper and maybe I should have taken them out and wrapped them in plastic wrap or something that would retain all of the moisture.

The recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of pea flour. I could not find pea flour, and the only pea protein I could find was in giant containers and cost a fortune. I have a vitamix, so I got some yellow split peas and ground them into a flour. Did the same for the 1 teaspoon of mung bean flour I needed. It worked perfectly. But if you don't have a high powered blender, or know someone who will let you use theirs for a minute, this recipe may not be worth it.

has anyone tried OrgraN (amazon item B000EHW0VQ) - it looks promising. Seems the ingredients are similar to the recipes you shared from meatandeggfree.com above

These sausages look really nice without many 'weird' ingredients, except for the xanthan gum, which most gf cooks probably have in their pantry anyway. http://www.onegreenplanet.org/plant-bas ... uten-free/
