I Love Seitan

Pronounced “satan,” seitan is a gluten product that is used as a substitute for meat in vegetarian dishes. Seitan and I met this afternoon during lunch at a cute Korean vegan spot called “Franchia” in midtown east. Seitan came on a kabob filled with mushrooms, peppers and some other indistinguishable vegetables. He tasted just like meat if not better than meat. And I have to say, nine hours later, I feel as light as a bird.

So, if you are looking for a great meat substitute, seitan is your guy–I mean your gluten.



  1. lemme guess, it tasted like chicken?

  2. Actually it tasted like meat. I promise it did. It looked like meat and tasted like meat with the exception of the strange texture. You know it kind of reminded me of a mushroom. Try it, you’ll love it.
