Smile What should I do with my seitan?

I have the best part of a 1lb sausage of seitan in the fridge.

When I make it, it usually ends up in sandwiches for work, but I think PB won out this week as we have a huge jar of that.

Now I'm thinking I should use it up in something tasty tonight before it goes stale (I don't know what the life of homemade seitan is in the fridge - any thoughts)

My first thoughts are to do a mushroom and seitan stew with carrots and potatoes.

Anyone got any other good ideas? I have more in the freezer.

put it on a pizza!! I did that recently with some of my leftover seitan too, and it was stellar. Also excellent on nachos!

^^^that pizza idea sounds fantastic!

I just went to Sprouts and bought a TON of faux meats/vegan cheeses & faux dairy last night (I went a little overboard ). One of the things I bought was a package of sliced seitan that I'm so excited to try! The package suggested making faux philly cheese sandwiches out of it - once I stopped drooling I bought some onions and peppers and plan on trying that this week!

When I make seitan sausage it is usually for pizza, or I cook it up in a pan (unsliced) with onions and green peppers, served with a side of spicy mustard and BBQ sauce. I also will tend to just eat it like a stick of pepperoni. :P

Grill it and serve it with peanut satay sauce, stir fried veggies and jasmine rice

I used most of it in a stew with mushrooms, potatoes and carrots in a 'beefy' red wine and yeast extract stock, and it was blumming amazing. Soooo tasty. Had what was left of the first sausage in sarnis for work today with mustard and greens - really is so much better than any of the bought faux meat sandwich slices I've tried.

Seitan is the best and most versatile meat sub out there if you ask me

Praise it.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I stopped calling stuff like tofu/seitan/tempeh "meat substitutes" a long time ago. Whenever I would bring up how good a chunk of seitan I made was, I was always told something like "yeah but it is fake meat". I now tell people, no, it is seitan, it is its own food. Something completely different. It is savory and you can program the flavor and texture of it. I have gotten the "vegans eat too much fake food" lines, so I need to express that things like tofu and seitan are their own foods, and not fake in any way.
