Bring a seitan dish to your next barbecue or picnic that even the omnis will enjoy! This collection of vegan burgers, sausages, ribs, steaks and more is perfect for grilling season, but good enough to be enjoyed any time of year.
Vegan GYRO Seitan Meat / WTF methodBy bigassveganAs a vegan, I've eaten some pretty good gyros over the years, but, trust me, nothing comes even close to this one! I promise, if you make it, you will become a gyro snob, just like I am now.
Vegan Steak | Washed Flour SeitanBy JenThis is the best steak texture I've ever achieved and it came out of several tests with varying ingredients and cooking methods. Though there are a couple unique ingredients, the good news is you should be able to source them online, and you'll get a lot of use out of them if you like to make a lot of beefy-style seitan!
Chimichurri SauceBy JenChimichurri sauce is one of my favorite condiments for bringing a little heat and adding tons of flavor to just about any dish, but of course especially seitan! Try using it as both a marinade (after the first cook) and a topping for the ultimate vegan steaks!
Montreal style smoked meatBy bigassveganMake it once, and it will become your quintessential sandwich meat. This Washed Flour Seitan is meaty, smoky, flavorful beyond belief, and a perfect vegan dish to impress and shut up all the vegan naysayers in your life.
Shish-Kabob and PastramiBy bigassveganThis one recipe yields both a middle-eastern beef shish-kabob seitan AND a pastrami seitan (see instructions on how to finalize). It is completely up to you if you want to make it just be kabobs, just the pastrami, or both. The taste is there to serve both needs and depending on how you slice or finalize it, it will become two different and unique mock meats. In the notes, I also included the recipe for the traditional crispy Serbian cornbread, because this goes with it like you won't believe.
PepperoniBy bigassveganThis is it! This pepperoni has the firmness, the bite, the spiciness, and the texture of its non-vegan counterpart, and no one would ever know them apart. Made in the larger-than-life NYC pizza slice style, it satisfies all the cravings, having you come back for more.
Vegan Barbecue ColeslawBy JenThere's a lot of coleslaw recipes out there, but what makes this one a little different is that it's mixed with barbecue sauce (and it's vegan, of course) making it the perfect side or topper for all your barbecue-style seitan sandwiches!
Vegan Chicken SatayBy JenMarinate your seitan in a delicious blend of lemongrass, shallots, herbs and spices, then skewer and grill to perfection to make this veganized chicken satay. Use the spicy peanut sauce as an amazing dip or salad dressing.
Vegan Chicken Souvlaki | Washed Flour SeitanBy JenThis vegan chicken souvlaki is juicy, savory, and perfect to bring to any barbecue or potluck. I used washed flour seitan chicken as my base, but any chicken-style seitan should work well. If you do wash flour, you can save the starch to make flatbreads!
Black Garlic & Guinness BurgersBy SuzanneThe addition of black garlic and Guinness, along with porcini mushrooms give this burger an earthy *meat* flavour. The addition of TVP gives the burgers a meaty texture. Black garlic is easy to make from fresh garlic bulbs. The easiest and less odorous way I've found is to pop them into roasting bags and put them into your slow cooker on a yogurt heating. It takes over a week, but it's much cheaper than buying them already made.
Vegan Prosciutto | Washed Flour SeitanBy JenThis vegan seitan prosciutto is just like I remember the real thing. It's salty, savory, and even a little bit funky. It's simple, yet elegant enough for your next charcuterie, or wrapped around your favorite fruits or veggies.
Washed Flour Pulled PorkBy JenMaking these vegan pulled pork shreds from washed flour is by far the closest texture to the real thing. Slow cook in an easy, flavorful broth and finish on a grill, under a broiler, or shred it and eat it right out of the pot!
Crispy Seitan LegsBy JenCrispy rice paper around a seitan, jackfruit, and lentil stuffing makes up this dish from A Veg Taste From A to Z. This recipe proves that you don't have to give up your favorite foods just because you gave up meat!
Vegan Beer BratsBy JenWho doesn’t love a good Beer Brat smothered with a little mustard and relish? Maybe some grilled onions and sauerkraut? Check out this recipe from Brand New Vegan.
Vegetarian Hot Dogs (Vegan)By JenRelatively easy and actually really fun to make, these look, smell and taste about 100 times better than any store-bought fake hot dog – and even give the real deal a run for its money. Check out this recipe and more at baked-in.com.
