Seitan Stir Fry
Tonight I was thinking about the Orange Seitan we made several weeks ago, but other than a package of seitan we didn't have the key ingredients on hand. We did have some yellow squash, asparagus and green onions though and we almost always have carrots. So first I started some brown rice cooking. Then I tore the seitan into small pieces, dusted it well with cornstarch and fried it in peanut oil over high heat until it was nice and brown. Then I set the seitan aside and stir fried the asparagus, squash and carrots in more peanut oil, then added some minced ginger and garlic and a few chopped green onions. Next, the seitan went back into the pan along with this sauce: 1/2 c. veg. broth, 1/2 c. orange juice, 3 Tbs. soy sauce, 1 tsp. sesame oil and 1 1/2 Tbs. cornstarch. Oh, and a pinch of red pepper flakes went in there too. We both had seconds so it must not have been too bad.
