Seitan, often called "wheat meat," is just that: a dough made of wheat gluten that, when cooked, very closely resembles meat. It's a common meat replacement for vegetarian and vegan diets and it's actually very easy to make at home. Use it to make breaded "chicken" Parmesan, barbecue "chicken" or even "chicken" tenders. Our recipe makes two loaves so you can use one now and freeze the other one for later.
To make ahead: Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
