    Thanks for the info. I'll have to check out Satan. :D ha ha
    In all seriousness, though, what is the texture like when seitan is cooked? Is it like a firm tofu? My wife is very particular about the texture of her food. I'm more about taste, and I'm up for some food experiments. I'll have to look around to see if I can find a store that sells seitan.
    I've had good seitan and bad seitan. Generally it's a lot like meat and a well marinated piece turns out nice. It's not like tofu at all.

    A lot comes down to cooking of course. You over do it and it's tough, just like meat. Experiment with it though to see what you think. I've had seitan ribs which are quite tasty. :)

    And that pizza looks great!
    All home made. :) Pizza dough is so easy to make. We used a Spanish sheep cheese on it. My wife can seem to tolerate goat and sheep cheese.

    We also use a vegan cheese. We found this really nice 'buffalo mozzarella' made of rice milk. From Italy as well.

    OK. Well, it looks like I'm going on a seitan search today. I'm definitely interested.
    I've never made pizza dough. I've always assumed that it was difficult to make. It appears that I need to broaden my culinary horizons a bit. Do you use cookbooks and recipes?

    Cookbooks, online, etc... lots around.

    Recommend getting a cheap mixer with dough hooks for making dough quickly. I don't mind hand mixing but if you're in a hurry dough hooks are great things.

    OK. If you have any sites or specific cookbook titles you can share, I'm sure we all would appreciate it. :)

    Not meaning to sound lazy. Ha ha
    I'm going to do some research on my own, too. :)

    This is a fairly good list of books:

    10 best vegan cookbooks | Food & Drink | Extras | The Independent

    and here:

    Top 10 Vegan Cookbooks | Vegan Break

    Isa also has YouTube videos which I recommend. There's other vegan chefs on there too. Some better than others.

    We get a vegan magazine called Vegan Life and there's also Vegan Food and Living.

    For online we typically think of something we'd like to make and search for it. There's a very large community out there now.

    I'd also recommend looking up Aquafaba. It's basically an egg substitute from an odd place. Thing is, it's pretty amazing. Great for desserts.

    It's gotten easier to find vegan food products too. Some are better than others of course.

    If you have anything in mind I may have a vegan version of it.

    No worries.

    Also for bread / pizza dough making I recommend covering the dough bowl with plastic wrap or even better is a shower cap, like you find in a hotel. It helps the dough rise quicker and stops it from developing a layer.

    I have other tips for dough if you're interested. I make my own baguettes and other loaves.

    Always use bread flour and recommend getting a good digital scale.

    So I'll start with posting a link to a recipe. We make this regularly and I may have posted a picture of it.

    This is a very nice meatless meal to have with some amazing flavours.

    Went totally veggie last night for dinner. I was hungry again about 45 minutes later, but I put up a good fight and didn't go grazing through the fridge afterwards. :D

    Sahib, this maybe something more your style.

    These are gyros (pronounced hyros) pork in a pita wrap with chips, salad and tsziki sauce.
