Blackbird Foods seitan was created by award winning chef Mark Mebus of Philadelphia based Blackbird Pizzeria in partnership with Mark's friends at NYC's popular Terri restaurants. Blackbird Foods is an independent producer of plant based meats, frozen pizza, and other plant based food products. We start the process with the simplest of ingredients: flour and water. From there, our process becomes more labor intensive, rinsing until most of the starch is removed. Lastly, we boil the rinsed dough in water with a little soy sauce, periodically stretching to give it its signature meaty texture.
Seitan is pre-cooked, so can be warmed and served in your favorite recipes in place of meat. Lightly pan frying, deep frying, or baking the seitan is a popular way to prepare it.
