These vegan pinchos morunos or Spanish skewers are so easy to make. They’re low in fat, high in protein and so tasty. You need to try them!

Ingredients

  • 8 oz seitan (250 g)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Cut the seitan into 1 inch cubes (2.5 cm).
  2. Put the seitan cubes in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix with your hands until well combined.
  3. Now you can cook the seitan or marinate it for at least one hour, better overnight. This way it will have a more intense flavor.
  4. Traditional pinchos morunos are placed on metal or wood skewers, but it’s not necessary, you choose.
  5. We cooked our pinchos in a panini press and didn’t add any oil, but you can cook them any way you want (sautée them in a frying pan with a little bit of oil, bake them, grill them or whatever).
  6. Cook until all the sides of the pinchos are golden brown.
  7. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
