In our quest for healthy-but-tasty vegetarian things, we have come across seitan, aka "wheat meat," which is made from wheat gluten, and spiced with this and that in an attempt to make it palatable.
Pronounced the same way as "Satan," far as I can tell, thus the clever title. However, I didn't take this as a good sign.
My wife mixed some up. Kind of like falafel.
I confess I was more than a little dubious about this, but what the heck, anything tastes good fried and with enough ketchup, right?
Actually, this stuff does taste pretty good. Not so much itself, but since it takes on the flavors of whatever you mix it with, and it has a kind of chewy, minced-fish texture, we came up with some faux-fish sticks, rolled 'em in flour and corn meal, dropped them into the hot oil, and got something looked like, and pretty much tasted like, Mrs. Paul's best ...
Good enough so I'd eat it again.
