Don’t believe anybody who tells you that eating ethically cannot be combined with delicious and more chic meals. There are plenty of festive recipes available that fit your lifestyle perfectly.

Festive seitan recipes – scrap the traditional Christmas dinner

Every Christmas sees the same type of dishes being served – things such as fondues, roulade or venison, and lobster, salmon or fish soup. They are all relatively traditional feasts. But you could prepare something even tastier and more surprising – a delicious vegetarian Christmas dinner. Vegetarian dishes can look just as attractive and appetising as meat or fish dishes, you just have to play a little with the colour and texture. Combinations such as seitan, vegetables, legumes and nuts can make up an extraordinarily delicious festive dinner. Below we have created just one example for perfect seitan starters and main courses:

“I often use seitan when I dice it so that it resembles diced meet. Dishes such as ´Seitan Stroganoff´ and ´Züri Seitan-Geschnätzi´ all gain from the firm texture and from the slightly sweet taste of the seitan”

“The soya sauce has a very distinct taste, in which the product is mostly offered already marinated. To me this taste forms a harmonious combination with other ingredients. I rinse the seitan well before using it, so that the aroma does not dominate and I add salt sparingly”
