This is not an exact amount recipe, but it does not need to
1 container of seitan Ė I use the Bridge brand. If your health
food store does not carry it ask them to order it. They make excellent tofu
2-3 large Yukon gold potatoes
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic
other veggies as desired, no need to use the same ones each
Choose from green beans, peas, something leafy (I used kale)
cauliflower is good, so is a turnip.
Soy sauce or tamari (they are about the same)
Vegetarian bullion (liquid, powder or cube)
Flour, I used whole-wheat pastry flour
If you have some leftover red wine it can go in also
Some of your favorite seasonings, Italian or some basil and
oregano. Frontier makes a mix called all-purpose that I like, you can vary the
Bring a medium stockpot ĺ full of water to a simmer; add
chunks of potato, carrot, turnip, any of the harder vegetables
Sautee chopped onion and leek (white part) in olive oil until
leek is a bit crispy, add to the pot. Donít wash the pan as you are going to add
the sliced seitan.
Then slice the seitan (put the liquid in the pot, if you made
hummus put the chickpea liquid in)
Now add the seitan to the skillet along with some soy sauce
and some wine, stir a few minutes until absorbed. Add to the stockpot.
Now put some more olive oil in the skillet, add flour and make
a roux, add some water and the veggie seasoning, when thick but smooth, add to
Now add the vegetables that donít take as long to cook, taste
and add any more seasonings you wish, some sea salt too.
Simmer until the flavors meld together, then serve and enjoy.
If you think this sounds a lot like beef stew, it does, this
is the way I used to make it when I used animal flesh, now it is so much nicer
not too and tastes just as good and more healthful.
You can make stir fry, stroganoff and lots of other things
with it. You can also buy a box of wheat gluten and make your own seitan, not
very difficult to do, just a bit more time.
