Mix the wet ingredients with the vital wheat gluten in the bowl.
Stir until mixture begins to resemble dough.
Dust a bread board or other kneading surface with wheat gluten flour.
Roll the dough onto the kneading surface. Knead gently until the dough is springy and smooth and tight! Let rest for a few moments.
Cut the dough into small squares or strips and flatten them out a little
4 cups vegetable broth
4 cups water Note: Replace half of water with Bar B Q Sauce for Bar B Q Flavor
1/8 cup soy sauce(Braggs) Note: for More Bar B Q flavor, replace Braggs with Bar B Q Sauce.
Pour in a Sauce Pot. Place pot on stove on medium heat and bring the liquid to a simmer.
Slide the pieces of dough into the simmering broth. Make sure they stay separate as they cook.
They should not stick together if they are of proper consistency.
Simmer the dough for 1 hour, turning occasionally.
The seitan pieces will expand and firm up as they cook.
Remove the seitan from the pot with a slotted spoon and let them drain and cool in colander.
Freeze them until ready to use.
Tips & Warnings: Don't worry about overcooking seitan -- it is very forgiving. Just don't let the liquid simmer away, or the seitan will burn.
Take Care Not To Add Too Much Water. Gooey Dough Will Not Cook Properly Into Seitan.
