Sesame Seitan Spring Rolls

Another Asian-inspired dinner tonight...keeping it light and healthy after days of Thanksgiving feasting. There's a time and a place for pumpkin pie for breakfast -- but that time was last week, not this week! So tonight we had Sesame Seitan Spring Rolls with Ginger-Soy Dipping Sauce, from 1000 Vegan Recipes.

The sesame seitan was so tasty all by itself. The thin strips of seitan are marinated in hoisin sauce and then rolled in sesame seeds before being sauteed. The seitan is sweet and smoky, and the seeds give it a nice little crunch.

The seitan tasted awesome bundled up in spring roll wrappers with baby spinach and grated carrot, and dipped in the citrusy, gingery sauce. If you haven't made spring rolls, give it a try, it's easy! My directions are here.

Happy December! Do you have snow yet where you live? We got some flurries the other day but only for a little while.  Winter will be here soon enough, though!


  1. Ooh, I really need to break out my 1K Recipe book again! Those look yummy.

  2. Oh my god...that seitan looks amazing.
    I think I have that cookbook; it's on!!

  3. These look great! And, do you know what? I have never made spring rolls yet. I guess I keep thinking that they're too time consuming, but I oughter give it a try!

  4. Beautiful! I always have trouble rolling my spring rolls. I need lessons from you!

  5. WOw! The spring rolls look amazing. Yum!
