Sei-teen with spinach

The Whole Foods salad bar at Columbus Circle has something called "Sei-teen with Spinach". The Sei-teen is apparently made with soy and water and looks like mini strands of pasta. Does anyone know how this is made and how one can recreate the mixture at home? Thanks!

  1. I am not certain whether you mean seitan or not -- a wheat gluten that can take on the flavor of anything it is put with. For example, if one is a vegetarian, in place of beef, a dish can be made substituting seitan which looks like chunks of beef and tastes very much like it.
    It can be purchased in any health foods store.
    It is a popular item in the Macrobiotic diet.
