Seitan Stew

This is not an exact amount recipe, but it does not need to be.

1 container of seitan – I use the Bridge brand. If your health food store does not carry it ask them to order it. They make excellent tofu also.

2-3 large Yukon gold potatoes

3-4 carrots

1 large onion

1 leek

2 cloves garlic

other veggies as desired, no need to use the same ones each time

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

Sea salt

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 seasonings

Bring a medium stockpot ¾ 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. Don’t 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 stock pot.

Now add the vegetables that don’t 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.

We look forward to hearing from you
