BBQ Seitan Sliders with Creamy Southern-Style Coleslaw

Vegan BBQ Seitan Sliders

BBQ Seitan Sliders

Sweet and tangy BBQ sauce clinging to thick, meaty strips of seitan combined with a rich and creamy southern-style coleslaw.

That’s it. That’s all I have to say.

Here’s a topless shot… I’ll let the coleslaw speak for itself.

Vegan BBQ Seitan Sliders

Served with a side of the coleslaw and some salt n’ vinegar potato chips, this was a wonderful Saturday afternoon lunch, enjoyed on the deck in the springtime sun! Sure you could make this on regular-sized buns or even on bread, but the little slider buns just make it more fun, don’t you think?

BBQ Seitan Sliders (Makes 5 sliders)


  • 1 loaf of Homemade Seitan
  • 1/2 cup+ of your favorite BBQ sauce (a little more or less, depending on how saucy you’re feeling today!)
  • 5 soft slider buns
  • 1/2 batch Creamy Southern-Style Coleslaw (recipe below) (Will give you enough to top the 5 sliders, plus enough for 2 side servings)


  1. Slice up the seitan until it’s in thin little bits. I slice mine in half (through the middle) lengthwise, then make very thin slices.
  2. Mix with BBQ sauce and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let it marinate (I left mine in for about 4 hours, or you could do overnight).
  3. Layer: Bun, seitan, coleslaw, bun… and that’s it!

Creamy Southern-Style Coleslaw (serves 6)

Adapted from this non-vegan recipe.


  • 1 1/3 cups vegenaise
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 t sea salt (more to taste)
  • 1 medium green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1 small sweet onion, minced
  • Black pepper


  • Combine vegenaise, vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl, mixing well.
  • In a larger bowl combine the vegetables, then pour the dressing over them. Stir until everything is nicely coated.
  • Refrigerate for at least an hour, then taste and add S&P as desired.

    Those look perfect!! As a Memphian, I’m a sucker for BBQ. It’s in our blood down here. But you know, I have yet to find vegan slider buns in stores here. All the brands I’ve found have eggs. 🙁 Last time I made sliders, I cut ciabatta loaves in half. Good, but not as soft as a slider bun. What brand do you use?

      They were just from the bakery at my local grocery store (King Soopers), and they didn’t have egg or milk in them. I bet specialty bakerys might carry them too!
