Get ready for the best taco (Tues)day ever with this meaty, plant-based tacos al pastor! Seitan is marinated in a spicy, tangy, and savory blend of pineapple, onion, and spices and then grilled until crispy around the edges. Serve on corn tortillas with plenty of guac, pico, and fresh cilantro!

Seitan Tacos al Pastor [Vegan]


For the Marinade:

  • 1 or more pounds seitan
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1 white onion diced
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle or cayenne powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Minced cilantro
  • A few drops liquid smoke (optional)

For Serving:

  • Corn tortillas
  • Pico de gallo
  • Guacamole


  1. Blend the pineapple and onion together and then add the rest of the ingredients. You’ll have a special spicy slurry ready for marinating.
  2. Soak seitan strips or small steaks for up to two days but for at least one. Then put them on skewers with additional pineapple and onion chunks (important for moisture) and grill them over high heat for about 10 minutes or so, rotating as you see fit.
  3. When they’re done, mince the seitan, pineapple, and onion into small pieces. Serve on grilled corn tortillas with finely minced onion and cilantro.





Fresh, original, delicious vegan food that can be made while balancing the demands of a busy lifestyle. I'm a full-time teacher, father, and ultra-runner obsessed with vegan food, recipe development, and photography. I write my blog to share food-related experiences while living as an expatriate in Nicaragua. I work really hard to produce the most original, delicious vegan food that I can while balancing the demands of a busy lifestyle. Veganism is a way of life that demands exposure!
