Seitan is a unique product with a long history. It’s primary ingredient is gluten, the main protein found in wheat. Seitan production involves washing wheat flour dough until the starch granules are gone. The left-over gluten is a sticky, elastic mass, which is then cooked to make seitan. Seitan has been a staple in Chinese, Korean and Japanese cuisine for centuries.
It is only in the past few decades that it’s become popular with vegetarians and vegans as well. It is used as a meat substitute in many recipes. When cooked it has a chewy texture that is more like cooked meat than other meat alternatives. It lends itself well to recipes that need tougher cuts of meat, like steak.

In this recipe we used Belberry Sicilian Mandarin Vinegar. The sweet Sicilian Mandarins round out the acidity of the vinegar. Belberry Royal Selection has a large selection of gourmet vinegars available.

In this recipe we also use one of our favourite seasonings. The Saltwest Naturals Roasted Garlic & Onion Infused Sea Salt is harvested on Vancouver island. It is one of our most frequent used seasonings. Saltwest Naturals has many different flavours to try in all your recipes.
