The month of giveaways continues! While I will be having my usual variety of posts this month as well, I have a number of giveaways up my sleeve. I always love winning prizes and getting mail, and I hope that you do too!
Today’s giveaway comes from the folks at Upton’s Naturals. It is no secret that I have it bad for Upton’s Naturals seitan. In fact, if there was some kind of weird desert island scenario, in which I could only have one kind of seitan for now and forever, you’d probably find me drinking out of a coconut, wearing a lei, and settling in to another Upton’s seitan BLT.
Upton’s Naturals is a vegan-owned business based out of Chicago, Illinois. (If you’re ever in the area, they also have a small eatery called Upton’s Breakroom. I visited last year, and you can read that post here.) Their seitan line-up includes traditional, ground, chorizo, Italian, and the aforementioned bacon. Depending on your area, they also offer a variety of pre-made sandwiches and meals.
The thing that I like about their seitan, in addition to the taste obviously, is the fact that the ingredients are the same as if I was making seitan at home. For example, the ingredients in the Italian seitan are water, vital wheat gluten, soy sauce, whole wheat flour, garlic, oregano, sea salt, onion, fennel, black pepper, and red pepper. While I’m no stranger to making my own seitan, it’s super handy to just grab a package at the grocery store for a quick and convenient pizza topping, sandwich, or whatnot.
The seitan bacon makes an excellent addition to a platter of tofu scramble and hashbrowns. Plus, my garlicky collard greens are taken up a notch by first sautéing diced bacon seitan with minced garlic and then letting the collards cook down in vegetable broth.
But the bacon isn’t the only product getting some love. The Italian seitan sausage is a tasty and toothsome layer in lasagna and makes regular appearances on pizza with red bell pepper and onions. The chorizo seitan is a wonderful addition to tacos or taco pizza.
I also use their seitan for:
I was psyched when the folks at Upton’s Naturals contacted me about doing a giveaway, and this one is crazy awesome.
