tonight's dinner-seitan cutlets

here is tonight's dinner.
I made seitan yesterday. I always made them myself with wheat flour but today I tried half wheat and half spelt. It did work!
Spelt flour does have gluten but a bit easier to digest than wheat gluten. I will try to make it again with 100% spelt next time to see if it works...
Seitan is not a great thing if you are intolerant to gluten but if you are not it is a great alternative to meat. the texture adds a satisfying depth to a meal and high in protein. you can purchase it at a health store etc but it is simple to make. (though takes a bit of time..)
the sauce is barley miso, kombu stock and rice syrup.
