Country Fried Seitan

Make this savory, down-home classic for your next backyard picnic.

This yummy, stick-to-your-ribs treat comes to us from one of this year’s vegan wedding couples. We say any marriage built on a dish this delicious is one for the ages! Serve this seitan with a huge salad, slaw, and slices of fresh watermelon for a perfect Southern picnic.

Serves 8

What You Need:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons spicy Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 3 cups panko
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 pound seitan, sliced into thin cutlets
What You Do:
  1. In a large bowl, mix flour, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and garlic. In a medium bowl, mix together water and mustard. Add 1/2 of the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, then add baking powder and panko to the remaining of the dry mixture.
  2. In a large frying pan over high heat, heat oil. Coat seitan with mustard mixture, then dredge in flour mixture, covering thoroughly. Add seitan to pan, and fry until browned on both sides, about two minutes per side. Serve hot.
