Sweet Spiced Seitan Skewers

Sweet spiced seitan skewers

One of the things I thought I’d miss on becoming vegan was BBQs – because mistakenly I believed that without meat, there’d be little I could eat other than vegetable skewers. I never needed to worry though, there are so many vegan BBQ recipes, including this one – sweet spiced seitan skewers. Now try saying that after a glass or two of Pimm’s!

Ingredients

  1. Approx 250g of seitan (I used GranoVita mock duck which comes in a 285g tin)
  2. 1-2 chillies
  3. Handful of coriander leaves
  4. 1 teaspoon of grated ginger
  5. 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  6. 1 teaspoon of maple syrup
  7. 1 teaspoon of rice vinegar or similar
  8. 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds
  9. Skewers

Method

  1. If using bamboo skewers, pop them in water to soak to help prevent them burning
  2. Chop the seitan into 1/2 inch thick pieces – don’t worry too much about uniformity
  3. Chop the chillies and coriander leaves
  4. Place the seitan, chillies, coriander, and ginger into a bowl
  5. Add the liquid ingredients and sesame seeds
  6. Mix well then leave to soak for 15-20 minutes
  7. Place onto skewers in desired portions
  8. Spoon any left over mixture over the skewers
  9. Grill & eat!
