RECIPE: SOUTHERN FRIED SEITAN FILETS

WHO DOESN'T LOVE FRIED THINGS RIGHT? Here is a fun way to make a real decadent southern dinner. Southern fried seitan filets! Serve like you would a country fried steak with smashed potatoes and gravy, maybe some creamed corn, whatever you want!


“Buttermilk”:

3 c of your favorite plant milk

2 T applecider Vinegar

1/4 c flax meal

2 T salt

1 T black pepper 

2 T paprika

A dash of your favorite hot sauce

Dry:

2 C flour

2 T salt

2 t black pepper

1 T garlic powder

2 T onion powder

Pinch of cayenne

 

Mix all the buttermilk ingredients in a bowl and let sit while you prepare your filets.

 

Take your BE Hive seitan filets and using a fork, poke your filets a bit just to make some spots for the “buttermilk” to get on in there. 

Place your filets in the buttermilk mixture and set aside while you mix your dry ingredients in a separate bowl. 

Heat a high smoke point oil such as peanut or canola to 350 degrees in a dutch oven or other large heavy pot. 

One at a time, take your buttermilk filets and dredge them in your dry mix thoroughly, knock of the excess and slowly drop into the oil. Don’t over crowd the fat pool, or the seitan kids are gonna get bummed and not fry crispy. Fry for 6 mins or until these dudes are golden and crispy.

Serve over some smashed potatoes with gravy and you have some serious southern comfort food for these rainy winter days we have ahead.
