Prep

  1. Marinate seitan - Cut seitan into 1” (2.5 cm) pieces. Smash garlic cloves (no need to remove the peels) and combine with soy sauce, oils (both cooking and sesame), vinegar and honey. Pour marinade over seitan and marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to a day. (Can be done 1 day ahead)

  2. Soak skewers - If you plan to cook kebabs on the grill, soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes while you continue with the rest of your meal prep. This will prevent the skewers from burning. (Skip this step if cooking kebabs in the oven.)

  3. Make salad dressing - Combine sesame seeds, vinegar, sesame oil and honey. Whisk while slowly adding cooking oil. Season with salt and pepper. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  4. Onions / Bell peppers / Pineapple / Cucumbers - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)

  5. Prep skewers - Thread skewers through seitan, onions, bell peppers and pineapple. Place kebabs on a sheet pan, sprayed lightly with cooking oil. Season kebabs with salt and pepper. (Can be done 1 day ahead)

  6. If using frozen edamame, defrost in the microwave according to package directions.
