Per 1⁄2 cup
1 package prepared seitan, chopped into thin strips (about 2 cups)
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons oil
1 cup barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons water
Heat seitan, onions, and garlic in oil, stirring frequently, until onions are just soft and seitan is lightly browned.
Reduce heat to medium low and stir in barbecue sauce and water. Allow to simmer, stirring to coat seitan, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.
Pile BBQ Seitan on top of sourdough along with some vegan mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato: This makes a perfect sandwich. You can also melt some vegan cheese for a simple Philly-style sandwich, or pile on the vegan Thousand Island and sauerkraut for a seitan Reuben.
