I am hooked on Whole Foods Buffalo Soy Nuggets. I literally go to the prepared foods counter and ask for “a small carton vegan crack.” They know exactly what I mean.
This recipe isn’t that because I use my delicious seitan (“wheat meat”) in place of soy for a more tender product. Their soy nuggets are rather toothsome, especially cold, which is how I devour them, as they never make it all the way home.
Of course, if you have a favorite seitan recipe, use it. BUT, I have perfected my recipe after some serious “R & D” in my kitchen. You can read the backstory and access my recipe for the most delicious version I have ever tasted right HERE.
Vegan Buffalo Bites
Yield: 8 pieces (easily multiplies)
8 pieces Booming Best (Vegan) Seitan, pan sauteed a couple of minutes on each side until lightly browned in a skillet lightly coated with non-stick spray
1 tablespoon melted vegan butter
1 teaspoon hot sauce like Texas Pete’s or Sriracha
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Liquid Smoke
1/4 teaspoon molasses
1 teaspoon diced celery
While seitan browns, whisk together all remaining ingredients, except diced celery, in a small bowl. Pour over seitan and toss quickly to coat. Keep gently stir-frying for a minute or two until heated through. Serve immediately garnished with diced celery.
