I just love seitan and there's only two other recipes for it on this site!! I thought I better add one of my recipes for others like me who love seitan and can't find any recipes for it. I use a lot of garlic, but it's not overwhelming at all. It had a very Asian smell and flavor to it which was not my initial intention, but it works great with noodles, stir fry's, over rice or with a side of mashed potatoes and green beans. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions and garlic, and cook, stirring until lightly browned. Increase the heat to medium, and add the green pepper and seitan to the pan, stirring to coat the seitan evenly. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 35 minutes in order for the seitan to absorb the flavors. Dissolve cornstarch in cold water, and stir into the skillet. Cook, stirring until thickened, and serve immediately.

This is delicious and easy. I've made it more than once. The only thing I do that isn't in the recipe is to leave some of the broth from the seitan package for the sauce. Yum!

This is an interesting recipe to say the least. While it does have ok flavor it does lack a certain aesthetic appeal. This was my first time using seitan and I wasn’t too happy w/ the results. Let’s just say the final results look the inside of a can of cat food. My meat-eating girlfriend wasn’t too happy when I cooked this although she said she liked it better than tofu. If you don’t mind seitan and have had it before then I suggest the recipe. If you haven’t had it before and looking to try something new I would avoid it.
