How to Make Buffalo Seitan

How to Make Buffalo Seitan

Ever since I first published my recipe for buffalo cauliflower, I’ve been trying various versions of the batter mix and trying different foods. One of my favorites is buffalo seitan! Seitan is something I have been meaning to make but have just been too busy. It’s also something I kept finding in slices or small chunks, nothing large enough to work for this recipe. On my last trip to Whole Foods I found a package of seitan from Upton’s Naturals that was exactly what I was looking for.

I first had Upton’s seitan at Vida Vegan Con and have had a few kinds since then. It’s one of my favorite packaged seitans because they have several kinds – making it very versatile. I couldn’t wait to try mixing up some batter and throwing some buffalo sauce on this stuff!

How to Make Buffalo Seitan

What you will need to make buffalo seitan:

  • 1 cup white flour
  • 3 tablespoons original Spike seasoning
  • 1/3 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup plain soy or almond milk
  • 1 package Upton’s Naturals Traditional Seitan
  • Olive oil or canola oil spray
  • 1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce

How to make buffalo seitan:

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together the flour, Spike seasoning. and cayenne
  • Add in the soy or almond milk and mix well.
  • Cut or tear the seitan into chunks the size of your liking. I like to do a mix of big and small pieces.
  • Mix the seitan into the batter. Coat well.
  • Lightly spray a glass baking dish or metal baking try with the oil.
  • Bake for 18 minutes, then drizzle with 1/8 to 1/4 cup hot sauce.
  • Bake for another 8 minutes.
  • Transfer the seitan to a serving dish and top with the remaining hot sauce.
  • Serve with a side of vegan ranch and some celery sticks.
