“Think before you eat”… “I eat with my head”

“Seitan can be an excellent alternative to red meat in many dishes, and when used in conjunction with the right spices and seasonings, can taste very similar. It’s also loaded with protein — that’s what it is, after all. Wheat protein.” “Hail seitan? Damn right — if you’re looking for an alternative to red meat” cheatsheet.com

“Always buy the best quality seitan. The seitan you find in your average supermarket is often very tough. Seitan should have a tender texture. Organic health stores stock delicious seitan (I don’t often like to mention a brand, but Bertyn’s seitan is excellent).” groeneprinses.be

When they discuss the various kinds of meat substitutes, and Attila tries the prepared seitan, he says: “Wow – that’s really good!”. Attila Hildmann also talks about the consistency of seitan: “Seitan has become extremely crispy and has a meat-like consistency. It’s amazing!”

“Vegan products that meat eaters love! Seitan is nr.1. It is wheat meat” “My Nr.1 substitute is seitan. Seitan is a fantastic substitute for beef or pork in recipes like sandwiches, casseroles, stir frys or woks. The possibilities are endless” jasonwrobel.com

“When it comes to vegetable alternatives to meat, for many people tofu comes immediately to mind, but you can also make a juicy ‘steak’ from ordinary wheat: thanks to seitan.” essen-und-trinken.de

“For seitan it is always important for me that it is not made from gluten flour but from well-washed and organic spelt. I have bought and tried many different types of seitan and was never satisfied in terms of consistency, texture and flavour. But your spelt seitan convinced me immediately and I am just thrilled!!” sebastian-copien.de

“I often use seitan when I dice it so that it resembles diced meet. Dishes such as ´Seitan Stroganoff´ and ´Züri Seitan-Geschnätzi´ all gain from the firm texture and from the slightly sweet taste of the seitan”

“The soya sauce has a very distinct taste, in which the product is mostly offered already marinated. To me this taste forms a harmonious combination with other ingredients. I rinse the seitan well before using it, so that the aroma does not dominate and I add salt sparingly”
