A vegan diet is a great option for people who are looking to cut out meat. There are so many amazing recipes that can be created with seitan, which is a type of wheat gluten. When you make these Seitan Sliders with Sriracha Avocado Aioli and Pineapple Salsa, it’s like eating meat without the guilt! In this blog post, we will walk you through some easy vegan recipes that anyone can whip up in their kitchen.
Seitan Sliders with Sriracha Avocado Aioli and Pineapple Salsa is a hit at any party! The flavor of the seitan combined with the spicy sriracha, creamy avocado sauce, tangy pineapple salsa or zesty vinegar cut through all this richness. It’s perfect for summer but also makes great sandwiches year-round.
-Prep Time: 20 minutes
-Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Instructions: To start, mix together seitan with whole wheat flour, soy sauce or tamari, and water in a bowl until it forms dough that can be shaped into patties. Once you have your patties fried up nicely on both sides (about three minutes each side), we will move onto making our sriracha avocado aioli sauce which is simply avacado puree mixed together with sriracha and lemon juice. Now let’s add some pineapple salsa topping! This will provide us with sweetness from the pineapple and the tanginess from the Sriracha Avocado Aioli Sauce to make for a delightful dish.
How to make the most of this recipe?
You can always prepare the slider buns by using store-bought ones, but if you want to make them yourself then use vegan seitan or tempeh for a protein rich alternative.
For optional toppings try adding some fresh tomato slices and lettuce leaves – it might not be traditional but it tastes really good!
You can also substitute avocado with other fillings like guacamole or sliced cucumbers. To keep things simple just add some Sriracha mayo on top of your bun before layering up all your goodies.
Lastly, don’t forget about dessert! If you’re looking for something sweet I recommend making these fruit popsicles from scratch which are easy to prepare and take only minutes in the kitchen…or alternatively pick up some vegan candy from a local store or even make your own.
What side dishes go with this recipe?
Aioli is a type of mayonnaise typically used as a spread for bread. Sriracha, an Asian sauce made from chili peppers, garlic and sugar, would be the best side dish to pair with this recipe. It’s also great on popcorn!
Pineapple salsa is another option that pairs well with seitan sliders. The sweet-and-tangy mixture includes fresh pineapple chunks, red onion and jalapeno pepper slices in lime juice vinaigrette dressing or white wine vinegar according to taste preference. Extra vegetables such as cucumbers can also be added if desired.”
Tips for making Pineapple Salsa:
-Use fresh pineapple, not canned (although you can use a little bit of juice from the canned variety)
-Add serrano peppers for spiciness and more flavor. You could also add jalapenos or bell peppers if desired. The heat will mellow out as it sits in your refrigerator so go easy on them to start with!
-You want about ¾ cup of diced fruit per person when serving but feel free to adjust according to taste. Cut up bigger pieces into smaller bite size chunks before adding them to the mix. Enjoy eating this dish straight away while still nice and juicy!
-Salt is a must and you’ll want about ¾ tsp or more per person.
-If using lime, be sure to zest it over the finished product for a really bright tangy kick!
