How to make it

  • For the seitan:
  • Mix flour, baking powder, nutritional yeast, and salt or pepper in average bowl.
  • In separate bowl, mix water and hoisin sauce until blended. Coat seitan pieces in hoisin sauce mixture.**
  • Coat seitan (having already been in hoisin sauce mixture) with flour mixture.
  • Cook seitan in oil over med-high in large skillet. Turn pieces after a couple minutes or when golden brown.
  • When done, remove pieces from oil and drain on paper towel.
  • **You could simply use water, terryaki sauce, or veggie broth, or even other sauces (I like mustard, bbq, or ketchup) depending on the flavor you want the seitan to have.
  • For the sauce:
  • Mix together all ingredients except pineapple (if using) and cornstarch/water and bring to a boil in a small pot.
  • Add cornstarch and water mixture and stir until sauce reaches desired thickness. Remember, it will further thicken once it cools.
  • Add pineapple (or whatever else you may like).

    " It was just okay "
    yellowarcher ate it and said...
    I made the sweet & sour sauce to go with some fried tofu I made. It was quite good, but I found it to be too vinegary. I think I will try making this with 1/3rd the vinegar and replace the other 2/3rds with pineapple juice.

    This looks yummy and I will admit, I have never heard of seitan/wheat gluten. I'm sure it's a great substitute for those who cannnot eat Soy curd. Thank you for the recipe! Cheers!!!
