Spicy Seitan Fingers

Posted in : Food Log on by : Sharmin Begum

Here’s something fun we made over the July 4th weekend. We’ve done something similar in the past with TVP chunks and with tempeh, but I was inspired by Vegan Dad’s wing recipes to try this again with seitan. I found time on my day off on the 4th to sleep a little and also to make a huge batch of the Real Food Daily seitan recipe so here’s what I did with part of it. This was an experiment, but it came out good. We use a milder hot sauce like Frank’s Red Hot for this but if you want to use something hotter knock yourself out.

1 lb. seitan, cut into strips
1 Tbs. peanut oil
2 Tbs. maple syrup
1 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs. cider vinegar
1/4 tsp. liquid smoke
1/4 c. Earth Balance margarine
1/4 c. hot sauce

Preheat the oven to 350°. Heat a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Add the oil then the seitan and fry the seitan until brown on all sides. Add the maple syrup, soy sauce, cider vinegar, and liquid smoke and cook for a minute or so until the seitan is nice and glazed. Add the margarine and hot sauce and mix everything around until the margarine is melted. Pop the whole thing in the oven to finish for 15 minutes. We had ours with macaroni salad and steamed broccoli on the side.
