I was raised as a Seventh-Day Adventist vegetarian, so I actually grew up with Seitan steaks, however, I knew them as Choplets. My mom usually bought them in a can, and I loved them then, but I REALLY love them now that I know how to make them!
Who knew they would be so easy to make and so much more tasty when made at home! I also learned that Seitan steaks originated in Japan a VERY long time ago. It’s amazing what I’ve learned. Who says you can’t teach an old dog a new trick. But I digress!
These Seitan steaks take a bit of time to cook, but the prep time is quick and very easy, so they fit perfectly into my “Unconventional Foodie” mentality!
As a health coach, I also recommend that my clients switch to a more plant-based diet, which includes skipping meat a couple of days a week. Here again, these Seitan steaks fit perfectly into that equation. They are loaded with protein and also are very low carb.
