SEITAN STIR FRY
pound package seitan
1 10 oz package Cascadian Farm organic Chinese stir fry vegetables or use your
own, I usually do, but sometimes the convenience is nice, either you donít
have much time or have run out of fresh.
If using fresh cut up a mixture of onion, red pepper, broccoli, green beans,
carrots, mushroom, bamboo shoots. No you do not need all of these, use
whatever you have. This is a good "use everything up before shopping again"
2-4 Tbs. unrefined sesame oil (better not to use the toasted kind as you are
going to heat it, the toasted is for salads, etc.)
1/3 cup organic ketchup
juice of 1/2 lemon or rice vinegar
2 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tsp. dried dill or I Tbs. fresh
1 Tbs. sesame seeds
2 Tsp grated ginger
I Tbs. kuzu ( a thickener, available in health food stores)
Water, about 1/2 cup
In a large skillet warm the oil, ketchup, lemon juice, soy sauce and ginger.
Cut the seitan in bite sized pieces and add to skillet, stir until heated
through, then add the vegetables, dill and sesame seeds.
Saute until veggies
are cooked tender crisp.
Add water then the kuzu (dissolve first in about 2 Tbs. water).
thicken when it get hot. Yes, you could use cornstarch instead, but try kuzu
sometime it works really well.
Serve this over cooked brown rice. It is good for dinner and the leftovers
goes nicely in a lunchbox. Serves four if you have salad and other veggies,
but two hungry people can finish this off also.
