5.0 (1 reviews)

2 Tbsp. egg replacer (try Ener-G brand)
3 tsp. water
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
Oil for frying
2 cups panko breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 pkg. seitan, cut into bite-sized pieces

• Combine the egg replacer, water, and mustard to form a thick, batter-like mixture. Cover the bottom of a heavy skillet in 1/2 inch of oil and heat over medium-high.
• In a large mixing bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper. Dip the pieces of seitan into the batter and then into the breadcrumb mixture. Fry in the hot oil, turning once, until lightly browned. This may have to be done in several batches.
• Remove the seitan from the oil and drain on paper towels.
