Recording tasty chile recipe for future reference:

Make a batch of seitan: 1 c. vital gluten 6 c. veggie broth 1/3 c. white wine (used sake)

Mix the gluten with water (perhaps a quarter cup) until it's sticky and all together in a ball. Put aside for at least 20 min, no more than 30. Knead into strings. In my experience, an inch thick makes them swell up and fill the pot they're cooked in... I don't know of another way. They're still tasty. Bring the both/wine to a low boil, put the seitan dough in. Cover and cook for an hour, turn them over once or twice.

Chile sine Carne con weird spices:

Chop up about a pound of the seitan you just made 2.5 c veggie broth 2 cans (19 oz) beans 1 onion ~3 cloves garlic 1 T garam masala 2 T chile powder 1 T Cinnamon 1/3 c. Honey 3 T Oil

Put oil in a large pot and sautee the onion and garlic. After eight minutes ish, add the seitan. Let that cook a minute and then put in the spices and honey. Mix it up a bit and then add the beans and stock. Cover and boil down the stock until it's a chile texture and let it sit about 20 minutes before serving. Super-tasty.
