I had a pack of seitan steaks in the fridge that I had no idea what to do with. I improvised with the other stuff I had in my fridge. Magic happened. I wasn’t too sure about seitan at first, but the steaks were seasoned just right and tasted like real steaks. Definite thumbs up!

Recipe (makes 4 portions)

For salad:

Cut some veg (cucumber, sweet pepper, tomato, corn, lettuce, onion, etc)

Cut some vegan mozzarella into cubes

Combine veg and cheese. Season with vinegar, oil and salt to taste.

For sauce and steaks:

Cut a pack of mushrooms and half of an onion. Fry off in a bit of oil.

Add 200 ml vegan cream plus 200 ml cold water

Add 2 sachels of instant mushroom soup

Add nutritious yeast/ protein powder (optional)

Simmer for 20 mins, until the liquid has reduced to sauce consistency. While that’s happening, fry seitan steaks briefly and add to the sauce for the last 5 minutes of cooking. Season the sauce to taste. Boil gnocchi at the end and combine on plate. Put in face and enjoy!

Price per portion: £1.70

Protein per portion: 57 g
