Spicy Seitan Buffalo "Wings"

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Spicy Seitan Buffalo "Wings" are a vegetarian and vegan substitute for traditional pub buffalo wings but with all the same seasonings and flavor and fried goodness smothered in melty margarine (make sure it's vegan!) and hot sauce, just like the original buffalo wings made from chicken.

Seitan doesn't come with wings any more than buffaloes do, but these meatless buffalo wings are cooked up with hot sauce and margarine for the same spicy flavor. If you're a vegetarian or vegan who misses buffalo wings (or knows someone who does), you won't be disappointed with this recipe!

  • 1 pound seitan, sliced into strips
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder

Coat the seitan with garlic powder and onion powder then lightly fry in olive oil over medium high heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until done.

In a medium sized bowl, mix together the melted margarine and hot sauce. Place the seitan in the bowl and stir to coat well.

Serve with ranch dressing if desired.
