  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • One 28-ounce can whole tomatoes in juice, pureed in a blender
  • 1 1/2 pounds seitan
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cola
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 hero rolls, split in half
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • 3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano


Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a medium, heavy saucepan over medium heat until hot. Then stir in the garlic and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook until golden, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 3

Cut the seitan into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Whisk together the flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and the cola in a bowl.

Step 4

Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Dip half of the seitan into the batter, letting the excess drip off, and add to the skillet. Brown, turning occasionally, about 5 minutes. Drain the seitan on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining seitan.

Step 5

Divide the seitan among the rolls and top with the sauce. Divide the cheeses among the rolls. Place the rolls on a baking sheet and bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

Step 6

Serve the heroes topped with the oregano.
