I’d always assumed that giving up meat would mean giving up traditional meals that I’ve loved since childhood. How could I enjoy a roast dinner without a roast? I’d tried a vegetarian roast from a rather popular brand, but didn’t like it, and while there are loads of good veggie burgers on the market, none really work as a roast substitute.

So I’m happy I discovered Love Seitan. If you’ve not tried seitan, you must! It’s a fantastic meat substitute that can be used in all sorts of recipes, and it’s also great sliced and eaten as you would sliced beef or pork. It’s made from wheat protein, so it’s very high in protein. It also has a firm, pleasing texture that works well in dishes like curries, fajitas, and stews – any time you need something firm and a bit chewy. My favourite way to eat it is thinly sliced and fried in bit of olive oil until it’s crispy. This makes a fantastic bacon substitute and can be used as a breakfast ‘meat’ or added to salads for extra taste and texture.

At the moment, Love Seitan produces eight different flavours, so there is bound to be something you’ll enjoy. I like the classic, as I find it versatile, but there are loads to choose from if you fancy something spicy, smoky, or herby.
