Veganized Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

This is a super simple dish, especially if you have store-bought seitan in your fridge. We used a package of Westsoy shaved seitan for this meal. Westsoy is pretty good in my opinion but I do prefer homemade seitan. Why does it have to be such a long, tedious process? WHY?

This is like so super simple I don't really think I should even supply a recipe but I will just for kicks.

Vegan Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

1 package of seitan, like Westsoy, or a portion of ready-to-use homemade seitan
2-3 tsp olive oil
1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup of cheese sauce, recipe below
3-4 buns

Heat two pans on medium and add olive oil to each. Once heated, add onion to one pan and seitan to the other. Cook the onion until translucent then add peppers, add salt and stir. Cook peppers and onion until nicely browned. Stir the seitan around to make sure it doesn't stick, cook until it's browned. Remove pans from heat and divide contents among buns. Top with cheese sauce.

Vegan Cheese Sauce

1 cup unsweetened original almond milk
1 tbsp of cornstarch
7 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp dijon mustard 
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup or more of dairy-free cheese shreds, like Daiya
sprinkle of salt
black pepper

Combine milk and cornstarch in a large (liquid) measuring cup, whisk until cornstarch is fully dissolved. Pour into a medium sized sauce pan and heat on medium. Whisk in nutritional yeast then add dijon mustard and garlic powder. Make sure everything is well-mixed. Continue to whisk the mixture until it starts to thicken. Add in the non-dairy cheese and whisk until melted/dissolved. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed.    


  1. I live in the Philly area and there are few places in the city that serve veggie "cheese steak" sandwiches, which are always delicious. I can't wait to give your version a try at home :)

    1. That's awesome! We hope you like this homemade version :)
