A Plant-Based Delight: Spicy Seitan Street Tacos

When it comes to my favorite go-to plant-based meals, one dish stands out above the rest: Spicy Seitan Street Tacos. These tacos are not only incredibly delicious but also packed with protein and bursting with flavor. Here's why they've earned a permanent spot in my meal rotation and how you can enjoy them too!

Why Spicy Seitan Street Tacos?

  1. Satisfying Protein: As someone who prioritizes protein in my meals, Spicy Seitan Street Tacos are a perfect choice. Seitan, the star ingredient, provides a hefty dose of plant-based protein, ensuring I feel satisfied and energized after enjoying these tacos.

  2. Bold Flavor Profile: These tacos are anything but bland. With a combination of spicy seitan crumbles, zesty chipotle mayo, and taco sauce, every bite is bursting with flavor. Plus, the addition of cayenne pepper and Dash's Chicken Grilling Blend Seasoning adds depth and complexity to the dish.

  3. Quick and Easy Preparation: Despite their gourmet flavor, Spicy Seitan Street Tacos are surprisingly easy to make. With minimal prep and cooking time, they're perfect for busy weeknights when I need a nutritious meal in a hurry. Plus, they require just a handful of simple ingredients, most of which I usually have on hand (you can view the ingredients below).

  4. Customizable to Taste: While I love the classic combination of ingredients in these tacos, they're highly customizable to suit individual preferences. Whether you prefer your tacos extra spicy, loaded with veggies, or topped with a dollop of guacamole, you can easily tailor them to your liking.

How to Make Spicy Seitan Street Tacos:

  1. Prepare the Seitan Crumbles: If making homemade seitan crumbles, season them with cayenne pepper and Seasoning before cooking them in a skillet until golden brown and slightly crispy.

  2. Cook the Grains: While the seitan is cooking, prepare a mixture of cooked brown rice and quinoa to add heartiness and texture to the tacos (I use a 60 second brown rice and quinoa to save time).

  3. Assemble the Tacos: Warm the soft taco shells and spread a layer of vegan chipotle mayo on each one. Top with the cooked grains, fresh baby spinach leaves, and a generous portion of the spicy seitan crumbles.

  4. Finish with Taco Sauce: Drizzle your favorite taco sauce over the assembled tacos for an extra burst of flavor. I prefer medium heat taco sauce, but you can use any variety you like, depending on your spice tolerance.

  5. Serve and Enjoy: Arrange the Spicy Seitan Street Tacos on a platter and dig in! They're perfect for enjoying with friends and family or for a satisfying solo meal.

Protein-packed Spicy Seitan Street Tacos are more than just a meal – they're a delicious and nutritious way to power through your day. With their bold flavors, quick preparation, and versatility, they've earned a permanent place in my meal rotation. Whether you're following a plant-based diet or simply looking for a protein-rich meal that doesn't skimp on taste, these tacos are sure to become a favorite in your kitchen too. So why wait? Whip up a batch today and enjoy the goodness of plant-based protein in every bite!
