One very fancy dish that will blow everyone’s minds on Christmas Eve is Wellington Seitan. It is not only appealing to the eye, but it’s also so delicious, that everyone will want more! The mushrooms and the mustard enhance the taste of the seitan really well and the puff pastry makes it crunchy and lavish.
