BBQ Seitan and Peaches

I think this dish was our bbq hit of the summer. Summery, sweet, salty, meaty, fruity and simple! We make out seitan ahead of time, using the Veganomicon simple seitan recipe which you can find here if you don't have the cookbook (btw, you should probably get that cookbook). Anyway, make sure you travel it in a container with the cooking liquid otherwise it will dry out. Peaches and seitan cook at different times so thread them on individual skewers so you can start them at different times. Also we find that if you put bbq sauce on your grillables to early the sugar in the sauce will burn, so cook your seitan for the most part before brushing on the sauce.

What you need:

Seitan, 1 x 1" cubed
BBQ sauce
Peaches, halved and pitted
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper


1. Coat, by brush or by gently tossing in a bowl, peaches in a little oil.
2. Thread peaches on a couple of skewers

3. Thread seitan cubes on skewers. Brush with oil so they don't stick to the grill.
4. Cook seitan until the edges start to brown, turning several times to cook evenly.

5. Once the cooking time is almost complete start slathering bbq sauce on the seitan and cook until a nice glaze has formed. You will need to watch to make sure it doesn't burn.
6. Depending on the ripeness of your peaches you will probably want to put them on the grill when you get to the bbq sauce stage with your seitan.
7. Cook your peaches until they have grill marks and are nice and soft.
8. Plate cooked bbq seitan and peach on a plate. Serve with salad or fresh corn.

Admittedly, I am a terrible food photographer.

Campfire version:

Same but ditch the skewers. Do the seitan in a pan and peaches in foil on the grill!
