BBQ Seitan Buffalo Wings
So today that is what I attempted to do, and the dish I decided to replicate using it was buffalo chicken wings. Often in vegan cookery cauliflower is used in this dish and whilst it makes for an amazing option here (will follow the recipe for those on a gluten free diet), seitan is also something that works very well, and if you can get the consistency right I am sure will make you very happy.

Ingredients
…for the seitan…
…for the sauce…
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and add as much water as required to bond the seitan together.
  2. Take roughly 1 tbsp of “dough” and shape into wings.
  3. Next step is to boil the seitan bites into a very rich vegetable broth for around 20 minutes; you can use whatever vegetables you have at hand plus some tomato paste, soy sauce and a bit of kelp. For mine I used 1 onion, 1 carrot, a couple of dried shiitake mushrooms, some parsley, kelp, soy sauce and tomato paste in 1 liter of water. Then simply simmer the broth for abouth 30 minutes after it starts boiling. To obtain two different consistencies wrap seitan in foil for a firmer texture, or as it is if you’d like a spongier and softer consistency.
  4. To make the sauce simply combine the two sauces, water and chilli, and heat on a stove for 5 minutes stirring all the time, or simply microwave for 2:30 minutes at 800W.
  5. Toss seitan bites in the sauce and arrange them on a baking tray.
  6. Bake at 200°C for 10 minutes, until caramelised.
  7. Serve with a sprinkle of fresh spring onion on top with a side of lime and coriander rice, in tacos, with some guacamole sauce or just as finger food.
