Holiday Giveaway and Recipe Contest Featuring Upton's Naturals Seitan

It’s officially November, which means the days are getting shorter and the Holiday’s are right around the corner. Eek! It also means that I am getting into the Holiday spirit and feeling quite generous! For the next two weeks on Plant Strong Diva, I will be giving away coupons for free packages of  Upton’s Naturals delicious seitan products.

There is a catch though, I want to know how you are using, or plan to use the Upton’s Naturals seitan at home. The tastiest looking recipes will be featured on Plant Strong Diva and the winner will receive two coupons for free packages of Upton’s Naturals seitan that can be redeemed at your local grocer by December 31st, 2013. *Recipe creations w/plans to replace the “meat” with Upton’s Naturals are accepted as well.

If you already are a loyal Upton’s user, I want to see your goods! If you use a different seitan product, I still want to see your goods and if you don’t know what seitan is, now is your chance to try it!

Some of you may be thinking, what the heck is seitan? Seitan is minimally processed wheat gluten that is a healthy and cruelty free alternative to meat. Seitan provides high quality protein, has zero cholesterol, is Non-GMO, is low in fat and is 100% plant based. The ingredient deck is slim and incorporates all natural ingredients.

I fell in love with Upton’s Naturals seitan immediatly.  Having been a “meat eater” most of my life, Upton’s made the transition to plant based eating simple. The chewy texture, paired with savory flavors, makes the Upton’s Naturals seitan easy to incorporate in many recipes. In fact, I am going to make a chili this weekend featuring Upton’s chorizo seitan (stay tuned for pics on Plant Strong Diva social media).

Upton’s seitan is best heated in a skillet with healthy oil and extra spice before incorporating into your favorite dish.
