The Wonderful World of Seitan

If you’re vegan, thinking about becoming vegan, or simply love exploring new and healthy meat alternatives, you’ve got to get yourself acquainted with seitan (pronounced “say-tahn” or “say-tan”) aka wheat gluten.

In the beautiful scope of faux meats, we have tofu, tempeh, texturized vegetable protein (TVP) and seitan (my fave—it’s high in protein, low in fat, and tastes delicioso). You can grill it, fry it, barbecue it, kabob it up, slap it on a sankie (with some mustard, pickles, and veggies) … the possibilities are endless.

You can buy it pre-made and seasoned (usually found in health food stores), or you can make it from scratch (it’s cheap). Either way, it’s life changing and I highly recommend you give it a try!

How do you like your seitan?

Just keepin’ it real,

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
