Inspired by Indonesian flavors, this Seitan Burger by Nina Olsson is a delight for peanut lovers. Creamy peanut sauce, a.k.a. satay sauce, spiked with coconut and tamarind is the perfect companion to bean sprouts and spicy seitan. Seitan is a by-product of yeast. Here it’s used like an Asian version of faux pulled pork rather than formed into a firmer patty. It’s scrumptious with savory sauces like satay or other curries. You’ll find seitan in Asian supermarkets or natural foods stores. You can easily substitute seitan with other ingredients such as tofu, tempeh, roasted vegetables, or beans.
