Uno dei molteplici usi del Seitan

I once made a very simple soup for a friend of mine, and she was surprised about how good and simple it was.. so, I decided I will just post here and there some super easy and quick recipes - nothing special, but maybe if you don't think about it, you don't know how to make it.

This is a version of soup similar to the one that my friend liked. Basically, the idea is that you boil some water, put some vegetables into it, depending on what you have in the fridge/freezer, add some spices and then, the important point is to add something nutritious into it.
Last night I used Seitan.

Credo che i miei lettori Italiani non sappiano bene cos'e' il Seitan.. e' un sostituto della carne, fatto di glutine, che qui vendono a pezzi immerso in acqua. L'ho scoperto grazie al nostro amico Portoghese, e da allora ho provato a prepararlo in molti modi. Daro' altri suggerimenti in futuro.
Una zuppa e' un possibile uso.

In last night's soup, there was also pasta (a mixture of shells,
conchiglie, and pieces of lasagne), and hot paprika, and some basil leaves. It turned out quite good and it was perfect for my sorethroat. We also added some pieces of Asiago cheese, which was really nice.

To give more taste to the soup, one can add some Vegetable bouillon (dado vegetale), or before adding the water, stir fry some onion and add some canned tomoatoes.
