Southern Comfort with Seitan

Once again I forgot to take a picture of dinner! As promised, I finally made a dish with seitan. I usually make BBQ Pulled Seitan Sandwiches or fry it and toss in a salad. Last night though, I was craving some food southern-style. I made homemade vegan “buttermilk” biscuits, breaded seitan, and a side salad.

Southern-Style Breaded Seitan

Serves 4

  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 2 tbsp veganaise
  • 1 pack of seitan cut into strips
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. In a bag, toss veganaise and soy sauce with seitan. Be sure each piece is covered in the mixture.
  3. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Toss seitan in the mixture to create the breading.
  4. When all of the seitan is covered, put into a casserole dish or a baking pan. Drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes on each side. Should be crispy when done!

Note: If you so please, you can fry the seitan.

“Buttermilk” Biscuits from Jewish Vegan

  • 3/4 cup soy milk + 1 tsp vinegar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 to a 1/3 cup cold to frozen Earth Balance, small pieces
  1. Oven should be at 400 F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Cut in small pieces of the butter into flour with a fork. Do not overwork the dough.
  4. Add vinegar to soymilk, stir, and slowly add to flour. When it is done, dough should be medium soft.
  5. Transfer dough to a floured surface. Sprinkle flour on top and roll it out to 1/4 inch high. To make tall biscuits, fold dough over, press a little with your fingers and roll it a little. You can make round biscuits by using a cup to cut it out.
  6. Cut out six biscuits, place into a pan with the size touching. Bake until cooked thoroughly and is slightly brown on the bottom.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
