Quick Seitan with Broccoli
(based on a recipe from Epicurious)
1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 pound seitan, cut into strips
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 10-oz bag of frozen broccoli florets, thawed
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbsp soy sauce
1/3 cup water
1. Toss together cornstarch, salt, pepper and seitan strips in a bowl until strips are coated.
2. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a wok or large skillet over moderately high heat. Stir fry the seitan until just cooked through, about one to two minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
3. Add remaining tbsp of oil to wok/skillet. Add broccoli and garlic and stir fry over moderately high heat, until broccoli is tender, about 2 minutes.
4. Add soy sauce and water and bring to a boil. Return seitan to the skillet and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened. About 2 minutes. Serve over rice or pick at it from the skillet while the rice is cooking until there's nothing left.
