Spicy Buffalo 'Chicken' wraps with Ranch

1 recipe Buffalo sauce, below
1 recipe Morgan's Ranch, below
1 batch of homemade seitan (recipe below) cut into thick strips, about 1 inch thick by 4-5 inches long, or store bought seitan, or Gardein began chicken
whole grain wraps
chopped romaine lettuce
shredded carrots

 Making Seitan:

n a large mixing bowl, mix together about 5 cups all purpose flour and 1 cups white whole wheat, whole wheat pastry or regular whole wheat flour.  And about 1 cup of vital wheat gluten.  Mix the dry ingredients well, and then add in about 3-4 cups of water. Add slowly, and as soon as the mixture has come together in a nice ball that is sticky, but not sticking to anything. Knead the dough for a few minutes, and then let it rest for 10-20 minutes.After letting the dough rest, fill a large bowl with water. Knead the dough under the water until the water is very white and milky. dump out the water and refill, repeating the process.  You will do this about 15 times until the water is pretty clear.  Your dough will look more like this when the rinsing process is done...Now it is ready to cook. Fill up a large soup pot with anything you want to cook it in. I like to use water with a touch of soy sauce and different herbs and spices. Cook for about 1 1/2 hours. Remove and let cool.  Season with a touch of salt and pepper, or any other seasonings you wish.  Now you can dice, cut, fry, whatever you want to do with it. For this recipe I cut it into strips that were 1 inch thick by about 4-5 inches long.
 
 Morgan's Vegan Ranch:
This is so easy! I make it all the time for dip/dressing/and sauce.
1/2 cup Veganaise (vegan mayo)
1/4 cup soymilk
handful of fresh parsley
1 tsp dried dill or 3 tsp fresh dill
1 tsp garlic powder
cracked black pepper
 
 In a bowl add about 1/2 cup Veganaise (vegan mayo). To that add a handful of fresh parsley, a tsp of dried or 3 tsp fresh dill, 1 tsp garlic powder, crack of black pepper. Mix well, and then add soymilk to create the consistency of ranch dressing. About 1/4 cup or so. Taste and adjust seasonings.
 
Morgan's Spicy Buffalo Sauce:
1/4 cup Louisiana Hot Sauce
3 Tbsp. Earth Balance butter
1 tsp garlic powder
 
Melt the 3 Tbsp. of Earth Balance butter. To that add the Louisiana Hot Sauce and garlic powder.. Whisk well and set aside.
 

To Make the Buffalo Wraps:

In a bowl combine 1/2 cup flour, pinch of paprika, salt and pepper. Dredge the seitan strips in the flour mixture.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet (enough to just cover the bottom of the pan, 3-4 tbsp.). Pan fry the strips on both sides. Place the strips in the buffalo sauce and toss to coat.

In a whole grain wrap place lettuce, carrots, buffalo strips, and ranch dressing and ENJOY! Serve with celery stick, fruit, or chips.
