Seitan, pronounced SAY-TAN is delish!! Not hard to find eaither, should be at any major grocery store in the refridgerated section or at a health store. Check out to find a place near you!

Definition: Although it is made from wheat, seitan has little in common with flour or bread. Also called “wheat meat”, “wheat gluten” or simply “gluten”, seitan becomes surprisingly similar to the look and texture of meat when cooked, making it a popular meat substitute. Seitan is also high in protein, making it a popular protein source for vegetarians. Asian restaurants often use seitan as a vegetarian mock meat, and seitan is also the base for several commercially available products such as Tofurky deli slices.

Needless to say if you have a gluten allergy, this is not for you. I got some at the farmers market the other day and made a little 'scramble' with it. First I heated my skillet to medium and put in some veg oil and sautéed some mushrooms, added a little garlic and tore up some Seitan and let it sizzle away for a few, tossing it like a chef :) Then I shredded up some spinach (also from the farmers market) and added that with chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, salt and pepper. I toasted my bread, from a local bakery and brushed it with some Organic Earth Balance and topped with my 'scramble'. Fast, easy and delicious...what more could you ask for???

Yum Yum...enjoy! Honestly, this is soooo good and satisfying!!
