Lemongrass Noodle Bowl with Mock Duck

Lemongrass Noodle Bowl with Mock Duck by Isa Moskowitz

This dish is bursting with crave-worthy Vietnamese flavors: lemongrass, lime, mint, ginger. I like to use homemade broth and infuse it with aromatics, but you can use bouillon, if you like. Just try not to make the base too strong; you want all the flavors to shine through. Mock duck is really just seitan, but if you’re familiar with those little cans of “mock duck” at the Asian grocery, feel free to use those! Recipe and photo from Vegan With a Vengeance: 10th Anniversary Edition* by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, ©2015.

6 Delicious Seitan Recipes

Seitan gyros

Dense and chewy seitan — cooked wheat gluten — is almost pure protein. Clearly, though, seitan is not for anyone with gluten sensitivity. Store-bought seitan usually comes in 8-ounce packages or 16-ounce tubs, or you can make Homemade Seitan with the recipe on this site. It’s a hearty plant-based protein with an almost meaty texture. Here are 6 of our favorite ways to use this versatile food. Seitan Gyros is a kinder, gentler version of the Greek meat-on-a-pita classic. Seitan makes a superb stand-in, and the shortcut creamy cucumber dressing gives the entire enterprise a refreshing zip. more→

Seitan Jagerschnitzel

Seitan Jagerschnitzel

Thinly sliced seitan absorbs the flavor of the rich mushroom sauce in these German “hunter’s cutlets.” You can use any kind of mushrooms you like, but I prefer using a variety of different kinds to add interest and flavor dimension to the dish.

Seitan Peppersteak

Seitan Pepperstea

Here’s the Chinese restaurant classic, peppersteak, in a hearty, “beefy” vegan version using seitan in place of the real thing. It’s better this way! I enjoy this served with noodles, but serve with brown rice, or even just on its own, if you prefer. To complete the meal, serve with steamed broccoli, and a simple slaw or a platter of raw veggies.

Seitan Gyros

Seitan gyros

Here is a kinder, gentler version of gyros, the Greek meat-on-a-pita classic. Seitan makes a superb stand-in, and the shortcut creamy cucumber dressing gives the entire enterprise a refreshing zip. For heartier appetites, a serving would be 2 gyros; one is filling enough for moderate appetites or when other dishes are to be served.

Seitan “Meat and Potatoes” Stew

Seitan and Potato Stew

Seitan gives this stew a “meaty” texture, and combined with potatoes and carrots becomes a comforting, hearty dish. Prepared seitan is readily available in most natural foods stores as well as a growing number of well-stocked supermarkets, but you can make your own as well (see the link in the ingredient list).
