Vegan Seitan Corned Beef

Canned foods are typically chosen because they are convenient and affordable, however canned foods may contain significant amounts of preservatives and even BPA (a substance that comes from plastic coating on the inside of the can) which can be harmful to one’s health down the line. When given the choice, it is always better to choose fresh foods. This vegan alternative to corned beef uses seitan, together with a delicious mixture of herbs, seasonings, and spices. You will be able to make a healthy and tasty Reuben sandwich without opening a can of corned beef.
