Making seitan

With encouragement from a friend, I made my first batch of homemade seitan! It was so easy and so tasty! My next batch will be breakfast sausage flavored, for tasty breakfast sandwiches AND I love using sausage in my pasta dishes!
First you mush the wet ingredients with the wheat gluten. When it's all mixed together (takes 1 minute, tops) it looks like this, a spongey blob.
Then you wrap it in foil, like so. I am going to make some of the breakfast sausage into little links, wrapped up in foil individually.
After steaming and then baking, it comes out all nice and brown and meat-y!
And here it is sliced up. I like it really thinly sliced. Or chunked up like steak tip-sized pieces for salads and such.
