Seitan is a popular meat substitute among vegetarians and vegans. Unlike tofu and tempeh, pure seitan does not contain any soy products. Seitan consists of hydrated gluten, which is the main protein found in wheat. It’s made by rinsing wheat flour dough with water to remove the starch and fibre. So basically, seitan is the pure gluten you’re left with.
Warmer weather is upon us. The days are getting longer.

Nobody knew how long they’d have to be homebound, with limited or no access to grocery shopping, so it was important to have essentials at hand.
