Seitan Tacos

These build-it-yourself "Seitan Tacos" (page 126) are sure to please, since each taco is individually custom made with just the ingredients you want. Cooked seitan is seasoned with chili powder, cumin, and garlic and is the "meat" of the filling. Optional toppings listed in the recipe are avocado, lettuce, and salsa, but you could also include sliced olives, shredded vegan cheese, vegan sour cream, and diced tomato. That's the fun of a taco bar! Soft corn tortillas are used here, a healthy choice to wrap around these delicious taco fillings.
"Keeping it McDougall Friendly" checklist:
ü     Omit the 2 tablespoons of oil when browning the seitan; use a nonstick skillet, and/or a little water or broth instead.
ü     Make your own seitan (Basic Simmered Seitan), or make sure you purchase an oil free variety.
ü     Use fresh (soft) corn tortillas which are oil free, as opposed to the hard shell varieties, which are fried.
