🌱 Seitan in Fermented Garlic Black Bean Sauce

To keep this recipe simple and so everyone can make it I’ve added pre made seitan in the ingredients list and directions. You can get this from most large supermarkets now.

I made my own and it takes over 2hrs of work and you need to leave it overnight to set, it requires a lot of effort. It’s the second time I’ve done it and I doubt I’ll do it again.

I did some research and got the idea of how to make this one from the “yup it’s vegan” website.

If you wish to try this yourself feel free to DM for more information. There is to much info to add in this caption.

If your gluten intolerant substitute the seitan for eggplant or tofu.
