  • 1 Veggie Protein Seitan - Spelled Bloc or 2 Veggie Protein Seitan - Spelled Steaks (bertyn)
  • 50 g Comté cheese (Maarten's Cheese) or another flavoring cheese
  • 100 g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • coconut-olive-red palm oil

  • 20ml water
  • a pinch of curcuma
  • a pinch of paprika

Preparation of cordon bleu from spelled seitan

  1. Cut 4 thin slices of the block (max 0.5 cm) or you take the pre-packaged slices. Drain well and pat dry with kitchen paper. (important otherwise the moisture will repel the cornmeal)
  2. Then place a slice of cheese on one slice of seitan and place the other slice of seitan on top. And that's how you make two pieces.
  3. Then prepare 2 plates: one with breadcrumbs and the other with a thick paste of: 2 unlevelled tablespoons of starch and 40 ml of water. To this you can add ½ teaspoon of curcuma (gives a nice color), a pinch of cayenne pepper, ... and add some mild Orac Botanico mix to your own taste.
  4. In this you will roll the seitan well, also the sides and the edges so that the 2 slices stick well together and afterwards the breadcrumbs can stick to it well.
  5. Then roll the cordon bleu through the whole wheat breadcrumbs.
  6. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the cordon bleu over a medium heat until brown on both sides. Finally put a lid on it, so that the cheese can melt extra well. Delicious with a vegetable puree!
