Frankie’s Vegan Spare Ribs

We devour these savory, sauce-covered spare ribs as often as possible at the VNHQ.

One bite and you’ll be just as hopelessly addicted as we are. Frankie tweaked a recipe from Simply Heavenly to create these highly delicious ribs.

Serves 8

What You Need:

1 ½ cup onions, chopped
1 ½ teaspoon non-hydrogenated margarine
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
½ cup tahini
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons salt
4 cups seitan, roughly chopped and divided
2 cups Frankie’s Barbecue Sauce

What You Do:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and lightly oil baking sheet. In a medium pan, sauté onions in margarine until soft. In a medium bowl, combine nutritional yeast, tahini, paprika, and salt. Add onions and margarine and combine well.

2. In a food processor, combine half of the seasoning mixture and 2 cups of seitan and blend together, adding seitan gradually. Set aside and repeat with the other half of the seasoning mixture and seitan.

3. Form mixture into 1-inch-thick patties, and place in rows on prepared baking sheet. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes. Pour 2 cups of barbecue sauce over patties, and increase heat to 375 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes or until well done. Serve with extra barbecue sauce on the side.
