Vegetarian Buffalo "Wings" for Super Bowl Sunday

Let's get ready to RUMBLE!!!!! ...Oh wait, my bad. That's wrestling, isn't it? Whatever it is, this Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday and Steelers and Cardinals fans across the nation are ready and rearing to go.

Nothing is more American than football, sauce-soaked buffalo wings and an ice-cold beer. I get excited just thinking about it. But what about the vegetarians out there? Why must they be deprived of buffalo wings? Well deprivation is gone with's vegetarian "Spicy Seitan Buffalo Wings."

I'll be the first to admit that I've not yet tried making these but I plan on giving them a whirl this weekend. They're made with margarine so you've got some heart healthy benefits going on there. Enjoy and please don't drink and drive people!

"Spicy Seitan Buffalo "Wings" are a vegetarian and vegan substitute for tradtional pub buffalo wings. Seitan doesn't come with wings any more than buffaloes do, but these meatless buffalo wings are cooked up with hot sauce and margarine for the same spicy flavor.

1 pound seitan, sliced into strips
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
olive oil for frying
1/3 cup margarine, melted
1/2 cup hot sauce
Preparation:Coat the seitan with garlic powder and onion powder then lightly fry in olive oil over medium high heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until done.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the melted margarine and hot sauce. Place the seitan in the bowl and stir to coat well.

Serve with ranch dressing if desired."
