I tried a few creative dishes using seitan, including stir-fried seitan with vegetables in a sweet and sour sauce. The Grandmama Seitan slice of pizza topped with Seitan sausage from Krunch Pizza Bar was a tasty treat. I was also a big fan of the gyro from the Long Island City Gyro Company, which was absolutely delicious. The texture was very similar to a meat gyro and was well spiced. But it was less greasy and much lighter than the meat version. Taft Foodmasters also provided samples other healthy vegetarian options including a White Bean Salad, Quinoa Herb Salad, and a simple Green Salad. Taft Foodmasters sells their products wholesale, so if you want to try their seitan, head to one the restaurants I mentioned to try it, and maybe you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
