Upton’s Naturals Seitan

I've been reunited with Upton's Bacon Seitan! Thanks @vegancuts #vegan

Upton’s Naturals Seitan

A few weeks ago Vegan Cuts had a deal for 6 boxes of Upton’s Naturals Seitan with included 2 boxes of their Seitan Bacon! 2 BOXES! I was lucky to try the Seitan Bacon through another websites deal a year ago before the product even had its own box design. I wasn’t going to miss a chance to try it again. I loved it so much. Two and a half boxes of this seitan has been consumed already. I sauteed up the chorizo seitan to serve with some rice and beans. One box of the seitan bacon has been used with breakfast and a few other meals.

Dinner: Quinoa Pasta w. Swiss Chard Almond Cream Sauce and Seitan Bacon #vegan

Quinoa Pasta w Swiss Chard Almond Cream Sauce and Seitan Bacon

My favorite meal so far with the Upton’s Seitan products is the Quinoa Pasta with Swiss Chard Almond Cream Sauce topped with Seitan Bacon. I love it because it’s gluten free and not gluten free at the same time. Reno was able to eat the pasta with the toppings of her choosing and we were able to eat it with some toppings of our choosing. Everyone was happy including Miles who loves his “pada” (pasta). Food shopping with him is hysterical when we turn down the pasta aisle. He screams “PADA!” and rushes for the boxes and bags of the good stuff!

The sauce on this pasta is my recipe for Mushroom Cream Sauce with Swiss Chard standing in for the mushrooms minus the spices used with the mushrooms. It definitely is a more delicate version of the sauce and the chopped up and sauteed until crisp Seitan Bacon finished the dish nicely! I have 1/2 a pack of the Bacon left and I’m tempted to just make this meal again.

    Yum! I tried a few of their seitan varieties at the Veg Fest over the weekend. They were all delicious!

      I really hope they start selling them in stores around here. Although I love my own seitan recipe I don’t always have time to make it and would love a good store bought version.

    Ohhh that sounds *fantastic* We love your recipe for seitan, but it would be so convenient just to be able to buy good seitan, without the time needed for homemade. Mmmm bacon!

    Oh, I got that Vegan Cuts deal, too! I had their bacon last year and have been obsessed since then. THIS dish of yours looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it!
