  • ½ Ginger
  • 2 cloves Garlic – crushed
  • 2 tbsps All-purpose flour

For the Sauce:

  • Whisk AP flour, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and salt in a bowl. Drop seitan and toss around to coat with the flour.
  • Heat 1 tbsp peanut oil in a pan and sauté seitan on medium-high heat till lightly browned on all sides. Remove and keep aside.
  • Rinse and wipe the same pan clean; add 1 tbsp peanut oil, sauté on medium-high heat green onions, carrots and peppers along with ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes till tender and browned around the edges, about 8-10 minutes. Keep stirring occasionally to avoid burning.
  • Now add Chinese broccoli, cover and let the leaves wilt.
  • In the mean time mix all the ingredients for the sauce to make smooth slurry. Add some water to help mixing.
  • Slowly stir in the sauce and sautéed seitan into the veggies and cook on medium flame until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve over brown rice or noodles.
