“Enjoy classic BBQ flavor with filling vegan seitan, or wheat meat. The sliced seitan needs time in a hot pan to turn brown and crispy; let it sear before coating it with the tangy ketchup mixture for the best texture. A side of sweet potato chips makes the perfect pairing for a fast weeknight meal.”


    • ¼ cup no-salt-added ketchup
    • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
    • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
    • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
    • 1½ cups very thinly sliced cabbage
    • 2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 1 (8 ounce) package seitan, sliced
    • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
    • 8 pickles


  • 1 Whisk ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire, garlic powder and pepper in a small bowl.
  • 2 Mix cabbage and mayonnaise in a medium bowl.
  • 3 Heat oil in a large saucepan. Add seitan and cook until browned, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the ketchup mixture. Cook until bubbly and thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • 4 Divide the seitan mixture evenly among the buns. Top with the cabbage mixture and pickles.
