Last week we made Seitan Entrees, Stews and Casseroles. Seitan has been a staple food among vegetarian monks of China, Russian wheat farmers, peasants of Southeast Asia, and Mormons. It is also well known as “Wheat Meat”. Seitan is derived from the protein portion of wheat. It is used as a substitute for meat in vegetarian dishes and the texture is known for being ” too meaty”, vegetarians usually opt from using it. Overall all these dishes are cheaper to make than buying chicken or Ground Turkey/Veal/Beef. The prices are affordable and you can find all of these ingredients in your local supermarket. This was a very interesting experience overall.
