Number of serving: 2
1 garlic clove, peeled

a pinch of whole sea salt

a pinch of white pepper

a pinch of chili powder

6-8 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

juice of 1 lemon

fresh thyme leaves, to taste

fresh oregano, to taste

250-300 g plain seitan, broken into small, bite-sized chunks


  • Start by pounding the garlic in a mortar and pestle, then add the salt, pepper, chili, oil, lemon, thyme and oregano.
  • Using the pestle in a circular motion, coarsely grind the mixture then set aside. Break the seitan into small, bite-sized chunks.
  • Place a heavy bottomed pan on the heat and wait until it’s hot. Dip the seitan chunks in the marinade making sure they’re completely covered and cook until they’re evenly golden brown.
  • Transfer the seitan onto a serving plate, pour the left-over marinade (if any) over, and serve.
  • You can also enjoy the seitan as finger food, using toothpicks or skewer sticks.
