Best Unchuck Roast My new favorite, the taste and texture on this pleases even meat eaters. It slices and shreds like a real pot roast. It is very easy to make- uses an automatic bread machine, a crockpot, and Chinese "vegetarian mushroom oyster sauce" which you can find at many Oriental markets.
Worthington Protose-style PeanutSoyWheat Loaf An easy low salt seitan variation with a mild flavor, simmered in a vegan corn or butternut soup. Deliciously similar to the expensive commercial canned loaf, with a vaguely meatloafy texture, this slices without crumbling and makes great sandwiches whether sliced thin or thick.
