Vegan Kabobs with Seitan, an easy healthy weeknight meal. Loaded marinated vegetable Kabobs with a side of baked seitan that’s seared in marinade for extra flavor. This is a meal great on it’s own or served with a greek salad or Naan bread. This meal takes time to marinate and bake which makes it perfect to prep in advance.
The seitan bakes for 90min. If you choose to make this and can’t wait around for the oven, seitan is perfectly fine to make a day or two ahead and sit in the fridge. The seitan loaf may look dry but when you reheat it on a skillet, you can add marinade or sauce or choice to make it flavor and juicy. I have also marinated the seitan for a day before and that works just as well. For this specific recipe, I only made enough marinade for my vegetables so I didn’t add it to the seitan until I was ready to serve it. For the seitan seasoning you can change it up from the Za’atar spices to make any flavor you want. I think a pineapple teriyaki marinade would be great for kabobs.
For the vegetable kabobs, I used basic vegetables such as mushroom, bell pepper, zucchini and onion. I’m sure any vegetable would be great for grilling. If you don’t feel like being outside by the BBQ, you can cook these in the oven (be sure to soak the skewers) or leave the skewers out entirely and cook them in a skillet. Be sure to reserve the marinade to pour over the seitan when you reheat it. If you would like to use a sauce for the seitan then you can add extra marinade when cooking the vegetables or throw it away.
