What on earth is the taste of seitan? I’m not a real fan of all those vegetarian protein substitutes, but now and again I just want to try them out.
What to cook with 300 grams of seitan?
Our favorite salad with fried seitan?
Slice 1 red onion thinly. Mix with 4 table spoons of red wine vinegar and 6 chopped dates. Marinate for at least 1h.
Chop the seitan in small pieces. Mix with 4 chopped garlic cloves, 1 chili, 1 table spoon of dried basil and a drizzle of olive oil. Bake all together until crispy. Add the dates and onion mixture. Bake shortly together while stirring constantly. Taste, add pepper and salt.
Spread 150 grams of a mixture of salads on a large plate. Make some space in the middle. Put the seitan mixture in the middle. Serve.
Okay, successful experiment, thanks to the best salad ever ( thanks to Ottolenghi).
