Seitan Wings

  • 1 Block(15oz.) Extra firm tofu
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive oil
  • 2/3 Cup Vegetable broth
  • 1/4 Cup Soy sauce, regular or low sodium
  • 1 1/4 Cup Vital wheat gluten
  • 1 1/3 Cup Panko bread crumbs, vegan
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Coating for the Seitan

  • 1 1/2 Cups Panko bread crumbs, vegan
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

"Honey" Gold Sauce

  • 6 Tablespoons Vegan mayo, I used Hellman's
  • 1/2 Cup Dijon mustard
  • 6 Tablespoons Agave syrup
  • 6 Tablespoons Vegan butter, I used Earth Balance
  • 1/2 Cup Hot sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees(F).
  • Drain your tofu and squeeze as much liquid out of the block of tofu as you can over the sink. Then add the tofu to a food processor.
  • Add the remaining ingredients for the seitan to the food processor.
  • Process, until the seitan, comes together, smooths out and forms a dough ball. This may take a few minutes, just keep processing until it all comes together.
  • Now, put the panko , salt and pepper for the coating into a medium sized bowl.
  • Pull about 1-2 inch pieces of seitan off the ball of dough. Then roll them in the panko and pat it down so the seitan "wings" are coated in panko.
  • Place each piece of seitan onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non-stick spray. Repeat with all of the seitan.
  • Now, brush the tops of the seitan wings with olive oil or spray with more nonstick spray.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, flip the wings and bake another 10-15 minutes. Or until they are brown and firm. They should feel firm, but you don't want to over bake them.
  • While the wings bake, make the sauce. First, make some vegan honey mustard. In a small mixing bowl, combine the vegan mayo, mustard and agave. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • Now, in a medium sized sauce pan, heat the vegan butter on medium. once the butter has melted, add the hot sauce and whisk to combine.
  • Simmer for a minute, reduce heat to low and then pour the "honey" mustard you made into the sauce pan. Whisk to combine, then simmer for another minute. Turn off the heat.
  • Once the wings are done, add them to a bowl and start pouring the sauce over the top and toss until you have them coated in as much sauce as you want. Reserve any extra sauce for dipping.
  • Serve immediately with vegan ranch if desired.
