Lately, I am craving everything bad – from bacon to fried things – but still feeling very vegan. Oh, the quandry in which I find myself… If you are like me (good intentions, evil cravings), you will probably like this simple dish of fried seitan. It is easy to make and satisfies your chicken fried whatever craving you may be experiencing at the moment. Feel free to get crazy with the herbs. I had fresh thyme in the refrigerator, but you can use dried (if you do, reduce the amount to 1 tsp.). The more the merrier – think of this as your very own chicken fried party.

¾ cup all-purpose unbleached flour
1/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1 Tbs. fresh thyme leaves, removed from the stems and chopped
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. paprika
16 oz. seitan, cubed (torn into smaller chunks)
3 Tbs. olive oil
Mik flour, nutritional yeast, thyme, garlic salt and paprika in a gallon-sized ziploc bag. Add seitan and shake until the seitan is well coated. Heat oil in large frying pan. Add seitan and cook until browned on all sides. Don’t stir too much as you don’t want the coating to come off the seitan. Enjoy!
