spicy seitan wings with cumin-harissa dipping sauce

Spicy Seitan Wings with Cumin-Harissa Dipping Sauce, from the new cookbook

They're spicy. They're sassy. They're baked, not fried. And they take about 15-minutes of hands-on time to make. Meet my Spicy Seitan Wings with Cumin-Harissa Dipping Sauce.

I'm calling them "wings" somewhat grudgingly, since no actual wings, real or imagined, are included in the recipe. But since people of both omnivorous and vegetarian persuasions routinely refer to small, dippable pieces of meaty stuff as "wings," I'm not about to get all PC on you. Whatever you call them, I think you're going to like them, especially if you're a fan of spicy food.

the sauce sounds great and believe it or not I am a big fan of seitan - "wheat meat" as I called it in college.

Those look delicious. I do love chunky-meaty (but not meat, of course!) foods, and I also love spice.

I have tried a similar variation and my family loved them. I love cumin so this is definitely making my to make list.

I've never tried seitan. My publix doesn't carry it and I tried my local health food store but they were out. Maybe next week!

omigod - I've been cruising the vegan blogs, checking out the competition as it were - and I think that ALL your stuff looks amazing. My tiny, plastic co-writers and I are gonna explode trying all these dishes, but we gots to start with the seitan wings. Cause anything that gets dipped has got to be good.
