Seitan Paté

Source: Ecological Cooking
Date tried: February 6, 2014
Yield: 2 cups
Time needed: 5 minutes

I like this spread. The most difficult part was finding a source for seitan, as not even all Chinese grocery stores stock it. But I have found one that sells it regularly. Note that as seitan is almost pure gluten this is not a recipe for those who need gluten-free diets. If gluten is not a problem, seitan is quite a good substitute for meat and an alternative to soy or tofu based meat substitutes. For me, this comes next to hummus as a vegan sandwich filler or to put on crackers or toast.
