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.

    I just love the looks of these dishes as I am thinking of switching from meat. I suffer from an auto immune illness and started juicing and eating lots more vegetables and is feeling a whole lot better. So I came across these menu and is fascinating by them.
