Seitan Marsala Recipe
¼ cup (32 g) all-purpose flour, plus 3 tablespoons (24 g), divided
Pinch of fine sea salt
Pinch of ground black pepper
4 (each 4 ounces, or 113 g) Seitan cutlets or Tempeh (store bought)
3 tablespoons (45 ml) olive oil
¾ cup (120 g) minced shallot
¼ plus cup 2 tablespoons (54 g) minced bell pepper (any colour)
12 ounces (340 g) cremini mushrooms, sliced 6 sun-dried tomato halves (moist vacuum-packed), thinly sliced
5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
¾ teaspoon dried thyme, or 2½ teaspoons minced fresh thyme
Pinch of dried tarragon
½ cup (120 ml) vegan Marsala wine
1 cup (235 ml) vegetable broth, more if needed
Salt and pepper
Fresh minced parsley, for garnish
1 Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C, or gas mark 2).
2Combine ¼ cup (32 g) flour with a pinch of salt and pepper on a plate. Dredge both sides of the cutlets in the flour mixture. Heat 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the cutlets for 3 to 5 minutes until browned. Turn over to cook the second side for 3 to 4 minutes until also browned. Keep warm in the oven.
3Reduce the heat to medium. Add the remaining table-spoon (15 ml) oil, shallot, bell pepper, and the remaining 3 tablespoons (24 g) flour to the same skillet. Cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes until the shallot is softened.
4Add the mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, thyme, and tarragon. Cook for 4 to 6 minutes until the mush-rooms darken slightly. Add the wine and broth and bring to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes. Add additional broth to thin the sauce, if desired. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
5Put the cutlets into the skillet and spoon some of the sauce on top. For best texture contrast, do not cover the cutlets completely with the sauce. Garnish with the parsley.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
