Seitan, one of meats substitutes is a very easy thing to do. It's great for its protein intake and because it can be used as meatballs, chicken or whatever you usually add to pasta, etc

  4. Whilst you wait for the pots to start boiling and cooking the veg, in a big bowl mix the gluten, a bit of salt and loads of spices
  5. When the small pot has warmed up pour the liquid into the bowl and mix well until you make a big meatloaf. You can shape if as you wish... round, in small pieces to make meatballs, long, ... 
  6. Let the seitan wait until the veg are cooked
