Candle 79's Seitan Piccata
If you haven't yet dined at the famed Candle 79 in New York City, we are happy to share a little of this vegan eatery with you, specifically one of its most popular dishes—the Seitan Piccata. This lemony, wine-simmered seitan, covered in capers and shallots, is perfect to make for someone who deserves a very special dinner. You may not be able to make it New York City, but we're happy to transport you there.
Serves 6
What You Need:

6 seitan cutlets
Whole-wheat flour, for dredging
6 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup minced shallots
1/4 cup finely sliced leek
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup capers, drained
2 cups vegetable stock or water
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley, plus 1/4 cup chopped for garnish

What You Do:

1. On a cutting board, dredge cutlets with whole wheat flour. Shake off excess and set aside.

2. In a large sauté pan over high heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil. Add cutlets and cook until crisp and golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Place cutlets on individual plates or a platter.

3. In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, heat remaining 4 tablespoons oil. Add shallots, leek, salt, and pepper, and sauté until soft and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add all-purpose flour and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, to form a roux.

4. Add wine to pan and stir well to incorporate flour. Add capers, stock or water, bay leaf, minced parsley, thyme, turmeric, and lemon juice, and cook over medium heat until sauce becomes slightly glossy, about 10 minutes.

5. Spoon sauce onto serving plates. Place cutlets on sauce. Garnish with caper berries, chopped parsley, and lemon slices. Serve immediately.
