Great way to get in that daily dose of protein. I found this recipe in the "Veggie Life" magazine, and I have yet to find a recipe in there that I don't like...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a medium pot with cooking spray and brown seitan over medium high heat (about 5 minutes), then set it aside.
  2. Add the oil, celery, onion, bay leaf, rosemary, thyme and garlic and sautee them for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the mixture is limp and fragrant.
  3. Stir in the beans, tomatoes, mustard, honey and vinegar, bring the mixture to a boil and then allow it to simmer for about 30 minutes, adding water if neccessary to keep it from sticking and/or drying out. Stir occasionally.
  4. When there are 10-15 minutes left add the seitan to the mixture so it can soak up the flavor.
  5. In a separate bowl combine the cabbage and carrot.
  6. When done, put the BBQ black beans together with some of the cabbage/carrot mixture in some warm tortillas. You can also serve the beans over rice if you wish. Enjoy!

Thanks for a "something different" dinner! I ate this without any kind of bread. Just over the cabbage/carrot mix and i really enjoyed it.

Yumm, turned out great! Hubby thought that they were on the sweet side, but I liked it. Served as written with whole wheat tortillas and sredded cabbage and carrots. I resisted the urge to add shredded cheese, and I'm glad that I did because it was great just the way it was. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It's great to have an alternative to the usual way that I make burritos, which is beans, rice, and vegi meat crubles with salsa, cheese and avocado.
