Seitan O Greatness takes over the internet


Seitan O Greatness, from Let's Get Sconed

Not since Jennifer Schmoo invented Vegan Twinkies have I seen a recipe make the blog rounds like this. Starting from one little post on the PPK forums, Lachesis' seitan has captivated our hearts (and farts) and minds.

Driven by some peculiar obsessive desire that must stem from having no toys as a child and instead resorting to collecting twigs*, I decided to document every instance of this seitan on the internet. But then I got lazy. But here is what I have so far.

Jess of Let's Get Sconed mentions it a lot. In this instance she uses it in a recipe for Asparagus, Almond and Basil Fried Rice.

Vivacious Vegan makes an Indian flavored version for a Tikka Masala recipe.

Okra Mary at Picked Treats takes only one bite! But she plans on using it for taco filling. Stay tuned.

Vegetation veganizes her mum's Beef Stroganoff recipe, and cuts down on the spiciness a bit.

Squirrel's Vegan Kitchen tweaks the spices a bit. Also check out that Kahlua pie!

Utopian Kitchen pays homage to the double threat; Lachesis' recipe in LoLo's Crispy Sweet And Sour Seitan.

A lil mention from Frytopia.

Susan of Fat Free Vegan Kitchen bakes hers in the toaster oven, plus tweaks the recipe Susan style.

Have Cake Will Travel
tries the log method out with the PPK recipe and in the same post pays homage to the Soy Not Oi! Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookie.

First lindyloo sings the seitan's praises and ends things with a very important public service announcement of the flatulated nature on Yeah That Vegan Shit.

Try to check out as many of the links as you can, since discovering new vegan blogs is like striking gold.


*I really did this. And then I wrapped them in lanyard and taped a piece of paper onto them detailing where and when I found the twig. The fork is wrong with me?
