20 min Dinner: Seitan steak with mushroom/cauliflower sauce

2014-06-23 19.07.41

Over the weekend I made a trip to a lovely vegan wholefoods shop and bought an assortment of weird things I’ve been meaning to try for ages, but never did because I couldn’t buy it anywhere close by. One of those things: Seitan, the wheat meat alternative. It was a bit pricey, but I figured it would be worth it if I find that I really like it! I had a chance to try it out on Monday with a quick dinner of leftovers.

I boiled the pasta and some frozen veg mix. I used leftover cauliflower cheese sauce and added fried mushrooms and vegan pesto along with a bunch of herbs to make it more “mushroomy”. Finally I fried the seitan steak with a bit of chicken seasoning and voila, dinner was done in under 20 mins. I wasn’t a big fan of the taste of seitan with this, needed more flavour, so next time I will try marinating it. Otherwise the texture is nice and meaty and it blends in with the food, very much like tofu.
