So on to the products – 1kg seitan logs – Chilli & Garlic, this is used in a No Beef Stroganoff. Great meat substitute and with the garlic & chilli flavour gives the dish the extra boost.
Chyk’n Bites – Just served on their own, heated through the oven with homemade ketchup for a bar snack. Lovely and crispy with a very tasty coating. We sell load as no one really realises they’re not chicken. (Great for kids)
Shredded Seitan – Great as a hot sandwich again works well as a non-meat chicken club, or Caesar sandwich/salad.
We are soon to be changing our concept so looking forward to using the pepperoni & other flavours of seitan logs as well as the shredded seitan. Most importantly we would not use LoveSeitan if the customers were not happy with the product, as you can tell our customer love the product and this has helped the growth of our vegetarian & vegan customers. We will continue to use LoveSeitan and look forward to seeing what else they have to offer; the bonus last year was the introduction of soya free seitan which helps with the allergens as well.

HOW TO USE SEITAN
Seitan is the most versatile of products and its uses are only limited by your imagination or kitchen skills! All of the images on this website are dishes we have made ourselves using seitan including those on the labels above which will enlarge if you click them. Historically meals consist of a protein (seitan, animal products), carbohydrates (vegetables, pasta, rice) and often a sauce or dressing (gravy, ketchup, soy sauce). Seitan is the ideal replacement for animal products offering all of the benefits and none of the negatives which include the cholesterol and saturated fats which can lead to serious illness and of course seitan does not release greenhouse gases of which the livestock sector are a major contributor.
Seitan is a Japanese word which translates to “proper” or “correct” protein. The protein content of seitan is on a par with that of chicken breast at around 30%. It has a higher protein content than pork, eggs, milk, ground beef and fish.
If you are flexitarian or if you are transitioning to a vegan / plant based diet, you can use seitan to create any dishes that you would previously have used animal products. Whether it’s a roast dinner, pasta, a stir fry, a stew or casserole, fried rice or a filling for a sandwich, burrito or jacket potato. It’s ideal in a curry, in lasagna, in pies or pasties, as a pizza topping or as part of a full English breakfast.
It can be fried, baked, grilled, tossed in a salad or even eaten raw out of the pack. The options really are limitless and please do take inspiration from the images on this website which we will continually be adding to as we create them.
