Some cooking notes to remember for next year

Posted November 27th, 2008 by s5

We tried out some modifications this year, and the unflesh came out so tender and perfect that I wanted to jot some notes down before forgetting. If you have any notes of anything you tried, feel free to leave them in the comments.

- We poured one full cup of yeast spice mix in with the gluten flour (NOT in with the liquid). We used the bulk gluten flour at Rainbow instead of the usual Bob’s Red Mill.
- We replaced two cups of water for the gluten with two cups of veggie broth. We also added two Tbsp of tamari.
- We used the cheese cloth (rather than the baking-only modification).
- We poured in 1 and 1/3 cup of yeast spice mix in with the gallon of water.
- We wrapped the UnTurkey with three sheets of yuba, by first laying the yuba on top of the margarine greased cookie sheet.
- After boiling, we basted the unflesh (under the yuba) with a paste of yeast mix and olive oil.
- After covering with yuba, we basted again with yeast mix, olive oil and white wine.

Okay I think that’s it. More updates as they happen. And yes, we’re still on cam.

Photos as promised! Mine isn’t vegan as I used butter instead of margarine where called for. I set out to make a half-batch of the seitan and accidentally made a full batch. I cut it in half and froze part of it, and made the one-eater (more like four-eater!) version as seen in the photos. I barely made a dent.

Thank you so much for the site! I’m awfully glad a Tofurkey wasn’t killed for our meal. Making seitan is super-fun and I look forward to trying more recipes now that I know how easy it is.

I as well as my friends came reviewing the best helpful tips found
on your web site and so all of the sudden developed a

terrible feeling I never expressed respect to the site owner for those strategies.
My boys

were definitely so very interested to see all of them and have in effect honestly been
having fun with them.

Appreciation for


simply thoughtful and for

deciding upon such excellent useful guides most people
are really eager to be aware of. My sincere regret for

not expressing gratitude to sooner.

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or
vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the
same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot
me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!

Great blog by the way!

Asking questions are genuinely nice thing if you are not understanding something totally,
but this post presents pleasant understanding yet.
