  1. This is so simple yet so delicious, great recipe, thanks irene! One thing I would add; that amount of soy sauce is way too much if you're using regular soy sauce(kikkoman for me), a couple tablespoons are plenty, also the seitan sticking together was never an issue so I would just toss them all together in a pan, as long as they fit in the pan level. Make more easy recipes like this, I love them 🙂

  2. Hiii
    it looks delicious ! i love seitan so much but i don’t like at all when homemade by me 😂 it’s way too chewy haha but this one looks so crispy i wanna taste it.

    btw, do you feel the taste of tomato sauce once it’s absorbed ? i am not a big fan of it so i was wondering if so, by what it can be replaced to?
    thank you, just subscribed🤍
