Barbequed Seitan

What you need: 

1-2 small onions (I used 1 yellow & 1 red)
1 large green pepper
1 large red pepper
2 carrots
2 small tomatoes (I prefer Romas)
2+ cloves of garlic (to suit your tastes -- I used 4)
olive oil (enough to sauté with)
1 lb. chicken-style seitan
1 bottle of barbeque sauce (or prepare your own BBQ style sauce)
Optional: toast or vegan buns

What you do: 

This recipe is quick, easy, and tasty, and can be modified to suit your own taste -- you can add additional veggies or use tofu or tempeh in place of the seitan.
Slice the onions and add to a fairly large pan, along with olive oil; sauté until softened. While the onions are cooking, chop the remaining veggies to desired size. Once the onions are softened, add the rest of the veggies to the pan, and sauté 3 minutes or until they soften a bit. While the veggies are cooking, cut the seitan to desired size; add the seitan to the pan. Pour the barbeque sauce into the pan, mix, and simmer 10-15 minutes to allow the BBQ flavor to be absorbed by the seitan. Add any additional seasonings to taste.
Serve alone, on sandwich buns, or over toast for an open-faced sandwich.

I think this has great potential! When i made it, i think i added too much onion so i couldn't eat it but my boyfriend LOVED it (i only ate 1 sandwich). i also did not add carrots and used seasoned canned tomatos. i think i added garlic to the onion as well. i did not use the whole bottle of BBQ (i used cookies original because i'm in love with that and only that bbq sauce). i used 3/4 of the bottle and i thought it was too much. oh yea.. i also used only 1 package of seitan and i really do feel that it needs 2.

so next time i attempt this (and there will be a next time) i won't use as much onion, will add garlic, no carrots, green/red/yellow peppers, 2 packages seitan, hopefully some other spices to season it up, and 1/2 bottle bbq sauce (adding more if necessary). YYUUUUMMMM.


Yum! I made this as a sandwich. I put the bbq'd seitan into a french roll with some thinly sliced red onion, melted vegan mozzarella and topped with my homemade vegan coleslaw (made with lots of vegenaise!). Mmmm! So sloppy and so good. I am so full right now. :)


the name of this recipe is truly priceless.............

VWAV= Vegan With A Vengeance; a Vegan cookbook!

I made this but forgot the garlic and tomatoes-oops.

Still very tasty, quick.  I also didn't have bread but it's good alone.


i made this with homemade seitan and homemade sauce (actually, the pomogranant bbq sauce in VWAV). yummmmm. i didn't have any of the veggies other than onions on hand so i just left them all out. this does make a really good sandwich also

Re: pomogranant bbq, what or where is VWAV?


I put in everything but the carrots (didn't have any in the house that day) and it was great.  My husband and two-year old son loved it too.  We will definitely make this again!


This was quick and very good.  I cooked the onions and peppers with homemade seitan, and served it on a bun with tomatoes and spinach.  So yummy!


Oh MAN, was this a hit!  I left out the carrots and used a can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh Romas, but it was still great.  I doubled the recipe for a dinner party, and five people ate 13 BBQ seitan burgers between them.  Then everybody went into a happy food coma, yeah.  I served it with oven-baked fries and salad.  Killer recipe!
