On Steaming Seitan

I have received many emails over the past month asking me what a steamer is, or how I steam my vegan sausages. In this case, picture is worth a thousand words.

at first, I used one of those fold up on itself small baskets that fit inside a small pot and ran out of room. Then one day I was at Costco and saw a rice cooker/veggie steamer for less than an actual steamer pot. I got that and have even made a coffee cake in it. for less than 20 bucks. I be happy.

we use a rice cooker with the fold up thingy (it lets us put more water in then the regular steamer. we have an old skool metal rice steamer, though. yours is very purty. i pretty much covet it.

I am glad I wasn't the only one wondering! I had to call my mom and ask her what a steamer was, which she found amusing.

Ahhhhh.... pretty pot. I'm thinking that the plug in steamer would be less expensive too than a pretty pot like that, but now I get it!

Sincerely,
One of those people who sent you an e-mail asking what the steamer was. :)

I use a large bamboo steamer that I've had for ages. I put it on top of my wok and it works great. And for some reason, veggies steamed in the bamboo steamer seem to taste better than the ones steamed in a pot.

I've been using parchment paper instead of foil and I put them in our Black & Decker Vegetable Steamer and set its timer. For the wheat gluten I've found gluten flour at the bulk store works.

Do you put a lid on it when you steam the seitan? To steam vegetables, I put a metal colander in a large pot with a lid on top. Do you think that would work for making seitan?
