Seitan Stir-Fry

If I had a signature dish, this would be it. It is a regular, go to, I'm starving right now, busy weekday, feel too lazy to cook, quick and easy meal. The ingredients are few and pretty basic, plus it is also really versatile, and can be adjusted to suit your own taste. Let's have a look...

Seitan Stir-Fry

  • toasted sesame oil  
  • 1 package seitan (I used WestSoy chicken style, feel free to sub your favorite brand or homemade)
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced (cremini, white button, or baby bella)
  • Bragg's Liquid Aminos (or soy, tamari, etc)
  • freshly grated ginger, to taste
  • 1-2 bunches broccoli, chopped into small-ish florets 
  • sesame seeds
Heat a drizzle of sesame oil over medium high heat. Add seitan and cook until browned about 10 minutes. Be sure to keep the seitan moving in the pan, it will stick to the bottom otherwise. Add another drizzle of oil if needed, and scrape the bottom on the pan for the good browned bits. Add mushrooms and continue to cook another 5-7 minutes, until shrooms are nice and softened. 

Remember, keep moving the food around with a nice sturdy rubber spatula. Add a light drizzle of Bragg's, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. It will sizzle, just give it a good mix. Grate your ginger right into the pan. A little ginger goes a long way, so don't over do it, kay? Stir, stir, stir. At this point add the broccolli, mix, then add another drizzle of Bragg's. Throw a top on the pan for about 2-3 minutes, this will steam up the broccoli. Remove the lid, and give everything a good toss. Plate up and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Now, devour. Omnomnom.
