Seitan is a great, high-protein meat alternative made from pure wheat gluten (found in whole wheat flour and breads). It is a great option for Meatless Mondays! When prepared, seitan is chewy which gives it a texture that resembles meat, not bread. Cook it with flavors, such as taco or Italian seasonings, and add to your favorite soups, stews, sandwiches, or dishes.
