We get 12 seitan or tofu marinades in the house !!!!! … well, more specifically in the freezer for the essential points. After becoming my Vegan Seitan Tenders( a recipe designed to be similar to chicken ), I’ve been having fun playing around with so many different flavour combinings and experiencing my seitan everywhere: on sandwiches, salads, pasta, as the main dish, in tacos or burritos, stir-fry, everywhere! Providing up my seitan with perpetual flavour combinings. SO MUCH YUM!
With these marinade recipes on hand, you are on your channel to some seriously scrumptious dinners. Each recipe makes less than 5 minutes to prepare and spawns enough to marinate 2 seitan affectionates( or about 1 blocking of tofu ), but you are able to reach more or less as needed. Then exactly sounds these in the fridge until ready to use- the flavors get even better the longer you marinade. Or you can give them straight-shooting in the freezer to save for another day.

These marinades are designed to be used with my Vegan Seitan Tenders recipe, but the marinades would also use gorgeously with tofu, tempeh, or another seitan recipe that calls for a marinade. If consuming tofu, use a medium, conglomerate, or extra-firm tofu. It’s also recommended to press the tofu first before marinading. Each recipe manufactures sufficient to marinate 2 seitan tenders or 1 barrier of tofu. Feel free to multiply or increase the recipe as needed. I designed each recipe to be SUPER quick and easy to make- no chopping, mincing or cooking. Each recipe exercises pantry staples- sauces, spices, and flavours that you likely already have on hand. That said if you are willing to sub in fresh herbs, garlic, or ginger, instead of the pulverized versions, feel free to do so. Marinade your seitan or tofu for a minimum of 15 times, but up to 4 epoches in the fridge for maximum spice or you can toss these in the freezer. The seitan stops beautifully, but tofu changes texture when frozen( it gets kind of spongey ), so freeze tofu only if you enjoy that texture( personally, I’m not a fan ). If you prefer oil-free marinades, sub any lubricant in these recipes for ocean, vegetable broth, or aquafaba. Immediately marinated, cook up your seitan or tofu any channel you like! Pan fry, grill, BBQ, broil. My favourite is to pan fry the seitan tenders over medium-high heat, a pair times per surface so the seitan gets a bit crispy on the outside, and red-hot all the nature through.
