      Title: Seitan
 Categories: Vegetarian, Main dish
      Yield: 8 Servings
 
      6 c  Stone ground, whole wheat
           -bread flour
      3 c  Water
    1/2 c  Tamari
     12    Slices fresh ginger, about
           -1/8" thick
      1    Piece kombu, about 3" long
 
  Mix together flour and water to make a dough. Knead until stiff (10
  to 12 minutes by hand or 6 to 8 minutes by machine). Place in a bowl,
  cover with cold water and allow to rest for about 10 minutes.
  
  While dough is resting, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. Add tamari,
  ginger and kombu. Cook for 15 minutes, remove from heat and allow to
  cool completely.

  water turns milky, drain it off and refill bowl with fresh water. In
  final rinses, use cold water to tighten gluten. Rinsing is complete
  when liquid runs clear as dough is squeezed (about 8 changes of
  water.)
  
  Lightly oil a 9" x 5" x 3" loaf pan. Place seitan in pan and let rest
  until dough relaxes, about 10 minutes. Use in recipes calling for
  uncooked seitan or continue with following steps for cooked seitan or
  continue with following steps for cooked seitan.
  
  Bring 3 quarts of plain water to a boil. Add seitan and cook for 30
  to 45 minutes or until it floats to surface. Drain and cut into
  pirces or leave whole. Drain and cut into pieces or leave whole.
  
  Place seitan in cold tamari stock and bring to a boil. Lower
  temperature and simmer for 1 1/2 to hours, depending on size of
  pieces.
  
  Serve warm or use in recipe calling for cooked seitan.
