“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”
