7-07-10 Welfare “sticker of approvals” for pork and SAFE’s welfarist reaction

This week on the show I talk about a sticker of approval that will soon be on pork products. SAFE was upset with this label, because it allowed sow stalls. I explain that ALL “humane” stickers are misleading and SAFE should focus their efforts on promoting veganism rather then rejecting sow stalls. I also read out one of my poem called “Sticker of Approval” and mention the following links:

Lastly, I read out this recipe for Wings of Seitan, from Heavy Metal Vegan Kitchen

  • 1 Cup Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 3 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/2 Cup Vegetable Stock
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Cloves Garlic

Broth (For simmering method):

  • 4 Cups Vegetable Stock
  • 4 Cups Water
  • 1/8 Cup Soy Sauce

In one bowl combine the vital wheat gluten and nutritional yeast and mix well. Grate up 2 cloves of garlic with a microplane grater and combine this in another bowl with the vegetable stock, soy sauce, and olive oil. When the bowl with the liquids has been mixed well, pour it in with the dry ingredients, and begin to knead like dough for a couple of minutes.

For simmering method: Prepare a broth by combining the vegetable stock, water, and soy sauce in a pot. Cut the seitan into approx 3 pieces, and add to the broth. Bring the broth to nearly a boil, but back off quickly and allow to simmer for 1 hour. Drain, press out extra moisture, and enjoy.

For baking method: Roll your seitan “dough” into a log shape, wrap tightly in tin foil, and bake for 30-40 minutes at 375 degrees in an oven. This will give a “meatier”, tougher version than the simmering method.
