Mexican cuisine with vegetarian seitan mince

If Mexican cuisine is anything, it’s extraordinarily colourful! The Mexican culinary culture stretches back thousands of years and is a melange of local ingredients with Spanish and other European influences. The cumin, bell peppers, tomatoes and garlic give this dish of vegetarian seitan mince it’s Mexican flavour. Have you ever tried Bertyn seitan mince? It is a high-quality mince made of wheat and is the perfect low-carb meat substitute!

Add cooked kidney beans or corn to the Mexican stew. Now we’re really talking Mexican!

Chef Chantal Voets also has handy advice; the coriander used in this recipe is actually a traditional Asian herb that is extraordinarily aromatic in both scent and taste. Coriander is the perfect companion.

What fans say about Bertyn

“I am just back from a week of cooking for a group of beginner yoga teachers. I had never cooked with fresh seitan before and when I was presented with this product I felt rather ill at ease about it. Then I read the simple description on the pack and after baking it on both sides for 2x 5min I ended up with a great looking product which a lot of the participants really enjoyed eating. We were surprised about the intense bite and flavour sensation. After a week of cooking for the participants there was still some seitan left over at the end, so I took a portion home with me. My partner has made delicious rice waffle burgers with curry, onion, salad, pepper and shoots from it. Much better than a lot of the veggie burgers that you find in the shops. It is a truly delicious treat!”
