    1                    Raw gluten recipe
 
    Place the raw gluten on a well-oiled cookie sheet.
    Using your hands and/or a rolling pin, flatten the
   gluten out to a slab that is about 1/2 inch thick.
    Bake at 350 deg for about 15 minutes.
   
    After 15 minutes or more of baking, the gluten should
   begin topuff up and form  air pockets. Poke these
   bubles with a fork to let the air escape and allow for
   more even cooking. Bake the gluten for 15-20 minutes
   more.
   
    Remove the gluten from the oven and from the cookie
   sheet. Fold it in half and cover it with a large
   inverted bowl. Let the gluten stand, covered, for
   about 10 minutes to soften the crust.
   
    Tear or cut the baked gluten into pieces and place it
   in the food processor. Briefly grind it to obtain a
   ground-beef-like texture. If you prefer, you may run
   the gluten through a meat grinder instead of a food
   processor.
   
    Use the ground seitan to make Ground Seitan Mix. Or
   use it in any recipe that is traditionally made with
   ground beef.
