Perhaps you may be wondering what on earth is Seitan!? Seitan is growing in popularity as a meat substitute, similar to how you would use Tofu or Tempeh. The difference is, unlike Tofu and Tempeh, Seitan is made from gluten flour and when cooked looks and gives the same ‘mouth’ feel as meat.

This recipe uses a ready-made, shredded variety of seitan which has been made by layering seiten on itself and broken off into bite size pieces. The texture is reminiscent of a fillet of fish or chicken when cooked.
