A little spicy, a little smokey, loaded with garlic and balanced with subtly sweet and tangy citrus, these vegan Pollo Asado tacos are amaaaaazzzzing! The marinade is delicious with any seitan or even soy curls, but my favorite is with the washed flour chicken seitan included in this recipe.
As 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.
This 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!
Make 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.
This 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.
This 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.
There'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!

This 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!
The 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.
This 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.
