Favorite seitan recipes?

Joltingjoey | Mar 24, 2013 07:00 AM

I've been making my own seitan for about 5 years and cooking 1 or 2 meals per week with it. I have a nice collection of recipes I make over and over, but am always on the lookout for more. I would love to hear from readers what their favorite seitan recipes are. Here's one of mine. It's adapted from a NY Times recipe from many years ago using lamb or beef.

Seitan Spiedies (note: I went to college in Binghamton, NY, which is the home of spiedies, which are a sort of Italian version of souvlakia. There's a good Wikipedia article about them)

1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red-wine or cider vinegar
1 tbsp lemon or lime juice
1 tbsp dried oregano (also good with fresh oregano)
1 tbsp chopped parsley
1 tbsp chopped fresh mint or 1/2 tsp dried mint
1 small clove chopped garlic
salt & pepper to taste and maybe a pinch of cayenne
1 pound seitan cut into 1-inch cubes

mix marinade ingredients in a nonreactive bowl and marinate the seitan for at least 4 hours (the longer the better)
Thread marinated cubes onto metal skewers and either grill over charcoal, or broil in oven until nicely charred.
Serve on folded slices of Italian bread. Spoon any leftover marinade over the seitan.
