Hi, I'm Devra Gartenstein with "Quirky Gourmet". Today I'm going to show you how to make vegan wheat meat, also known as seitan. It is a meat substitute. It is very high in protein. It uses gluten which is the sticky part of the wheat. Now you can get high gluten flour, it's also called vital wheat gluten and here I have some in a bowl. I'm going to add some warm water to it and I'm going to mix it as I go. You can tell when it has the right amount of water because it will basically stop accepting water. You see here I have a blob, going to pour some water on it and he water is just going to pool on the side. So that's how you know that it's done. I've got some water boiling here. I'm going to add some soy sauce to it and then I'm going to break up my dough into little pieces. You can drop the whole thing in here, it will take an hour or two to cook and then you can make nice slices. I like to break it into small pieces, bite sized pieces, about the size of a peanut, just saves you the work of having to cut it up later and it only takes a minute. These pieces are kind of like dumplings so as they start to cook they're going to float up to the top and when they flat up to the top, that's a good time to turn the heat down or else it's going to boil over. So now I'm just going to let this cook for about 45 minutes until it has cooked all the way through. Now the wheat meat has been cooking for about 45 minutes and I'm going to test it to see if it's done. The way you tell is you take a piece and you cut it open and if it's spongy in the middle which it is, then it's fully cooked. If it's dense in the middle, then it's not fully cooked. So I'm going to drain it and there you have vegan wheat meat.
