If you guys have been following our posts, you’ve seen our last recipe for Creamy Cauliflower and Pine Nut Sauce. This new recipe uses that delicious creamy, comforting, sauce to make an exceptional Vegan Chicken & Broccoli Pasta.
Wait, Vegan Chicken?
If you’re new to the amazing progression of vegan food, then hello! and welcome! Within the last couple of years, the vegan culinary community has discovered and been experimenting with seitan. Seitan is a completely plant based alternative to meat. Made from vital wheat gluten.
Seitan provides a really good vegan meaty bite. It has the density and chewiness most people miss when giving up animal products. Also, it’s packed with protein.
For this recipe we used a brand called No Evil Chicken, it’s one of our favorites for chicken-like alternatives.
Cooking seitan chicken is really simple because its quick!
How to Cook Seitan Chicken
First remove the seitan chicken from the package. Sear for about until 1 minute each side. Or until golden brown. Add the spices at the last 30 seconds of cooking and then set aside.
Quick and Easy Broccoli
An easy hack to cooking the broccoli is to add raw broccoli into the boiling water of pasta about 2-4 minutes before the pasta finishes cooking. By using this trick, at the end of the meal, there are less dirty dishes. Everyone loves less dishes!
