I'm going to visit my sister for the first time in forever. She is omni, but super curious about eating vegetarian/ vegan. She has specifically asked me to make her something with seitan while I visit. Any ideas of a good intro recipe? I was thinking the pizza bowl from IDI with the steamy beany sausages because who doesn't love pizza?, but am curious what others might think is a good introduction to wheat meat?

What kind of foods does she like in general? I'm not familiar with the pizza bowl but yeah, pizza's always good. Some of the first things I made with seitan were:

-jerk seitan and peppers
-seitan and black bean burritos
-seitan and mushroom stroganoff

And, when I was newly vegetarian/vegan, I made a lot of big weekend breakfasts with sides of seitan bacon, thinly cut strips fried in a cast iron skillet with salt and pepper. Sure they're not anything like bacon, and I grew up eating vegetarian meat subs even though my family also ate meat so maybe this wouldn't be the best way to introduce someone else to seitan, but those little strips are greasy and salty and crispy, and such a great side to pancakes or french toast or tofu scramble.

I have fed the pizza bowl to omnis, as well as the backyard bbq sauce seitan (with colipots). Both went over well! I think the pizza bowl won, though. Those sausages are amazing.

Jojo made me the bbq seitan with broccoli from IDI once (i think it's from there) and it was reaaaaally good.

+1 yummy for pizza bowls or the bbq seitan that baps mentioned.

I also really like the seitanic jambalaya in Vcon, it makes a ton though - i always end up cooking it in two dishes, so you could get away with halving it.

The seitan piccata from the veganomicon is super good and even a little fancy.

My favorite seitan is the white seitan from viva vegan. It's good in everything but my favorite is the green posole.

I second all three suggestions of the BBQ one from IDI, the sausages or the seitan piccata. The recipe is simplified on the blog and I do prefer how it is written there. A seitan fijita or quesadilla would be great too.

Man, this thread has made me hungry.

Thanks for all the great suggestions. I totally forgot about the Jambalaya. I'll be cooking for her family so the fact that it makes a ton is a plus!
The BBQ seitan and broccoli is also a great idea. I'll try to remember to update after the fact.

My favorite seitan dish is the VV Grilled Seitan and Potato Skewers with Green Dipping Sauce.
There was a braised seitan dish I made, I think from V'con, which was probably my omni spouse's favorite seitan dish.
