Seitan Cutlets and Chilean-Spiced Potatoes

How’s this for a motto: “Have seitan cutlets, will sauté.”

With fresh shiitakes and spinach in the house, it was fate that they end up in the same dish with my seitan. The whole thing came together in about 15 minutes. First I sautéed the spinach, took it out of the pan and set it aside. Then I sautéed the shiitakes with some green onion and a little soy sauce and mirin, and that, too, out of the pan. Into the same skillet went the seitan cutlets, which I cooked until hot and golden. After plating the seitan, the spinach and shiitakes went back into the skillet for a final blast of heat. Then I then piled it all on top of the seitan. Simple, elegant, delicious. You get the idea. Now about those potatoes….

One thing I like about potatoes (there are probably a million things I like about them, but I’ll try to concentrate on just this one) is their versatility. Take simple roasted potatoes for example, like the ones you see sharing the limelight with the seitan. They would have been perfectly yummy if just tossed with olive oil and salt and pepper before roasting. But here’s the thing: potatoes lend themselves to virtually any kind of seasonings. Add some spices (like curry or jerk spices), herbs (like fresh rosemary or basil), or other seasonings (such as garlic, lemon juice, and capers), and you can dress your spuds to go with anything. This time I used a fantastic spice blend from Chile called mapuche, a mixture of hot red chiles, cumin, coriander, and salt that gave the potatoes a wonderful flavor and lovely color.

Looks gorgeous, and I love to saute seitan because it's so quick.
three cheers for seitan!
I just found your site, and really like it. I have not tried seitan, but am anxious to do so. This looks simple and delicious. Thanks
These look so good. My menu this week is from your Vegan Planet cookbook. Six days of six different recipes from it. Yum!
Love the potatoes, off to find that spice blend.

BTW, which recipe did you use for the Seitan cutlets?

Dear Robin,

My name is Patrick, and I am from Taiwan. I am running a website, VegTomato,, dedicated to advocate
vegetarianism/veganism/animal right with some friends, which is a non-
commercial and non-profit website.

Just found your Q&A Column at the VegCooking, which is so helpful and
inspiring, so I am wondering if I can have your permission to translate it
into Chinese and post in my website so as to help and inspire people go
veganism? I will link back to VegCooking and credit it to you.

Thank you for your time to read this mail and look forward to hearing from
you soon.

Best wishes,

Patrick Shih
