I made this steak: https://lovingitvegan.com/vegan-steak/

I don't think I steamed it long enough. It felt like undercooked dough to me. My husband loved it and ate all the steaks since I didn't want them. I'll try again some time but I think I want to try smaller seitan bits first.

Seems tasty. I have a friend who makes really good seitan steaks. I'll have to bug her for the recipe so i can post it here. It looks very different than this one, so i'm sure she got it from somewhere else.

I've made seitan a few times but I can't say I've been too successful. I used to have a nice tofu shop nearby but no longer and idk if I really want to try making my own. I've defaulted to lentils, peas, and beans as my main protein sources since they are delicious and don't take too much effort.

Yeah. I often meditate on Fukuoka's words about simple foods. And also Lieh-Tzu. Basically, the further people stray from simple foods that are as close to what nature gave them, the more they stray from simple living. The more they stray from simple living, the more hierarchical structures they create and the more nature itself is destroyed.

In this context, it's like, just eat the beans instead of making tofu. Or just eat the rice instead of making rice noodles.

I make seitan every few months, here are my tips: add lots of spices to the seitan, you can dice onions and garlic in too, and follow a recipe that asks to mix in a little chickpea flour to the wheat gluten. Once it's cooked, I like to fry it as slices so as to make crunchy bite sized pieces.

What do you pickle? Have you tried lacto fermentation for vegan cheeses?

I havent tried fermented vegan cheeses. Seems interesting. I pickle veggies from my yard...cucumbers, cabbage, beets, radishes, Kale and parsley stalks.

I make black bean and mushroom burgers but haven't experimented enough with tempeh and tofu.

That'll be beyond my skill/time/energy level for a long while, I suspect.

Yeah, I do battle with the idea of just keeping things more simple.

Just found some recipes that use banana peels as a meat substitute. Has anyone here tried this before?
