1 Tbs. sesame oil
1 16-oz. pkg. seitan, shredded

Stir-Fry:
3/4 cup raw cashews
1 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. sesame oil
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4 inch strips (about 1 cup)

1 Tbs. minced ginger (about 1 Tbs.)
2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
6 Tbs. orange juice

  1. To make Glazed Seitan: Combine syrup, juice and soy sauce in small bowl.
  2. Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add seitan, and stir-fry 4 minutes, or until golden. Add maple syrup mixture, and simmer 3 minutes, or until seitan is coateed with glaze. Transfer to bowl. Wipe out skillet.

I just made this for dinner tonight and we all LOVED it--even my two year old! It was sooooo delicious! I suprisingly had the ingredients around the house, except for I used broccoli and carrots instead of red pepper and edamame. Yum!

I will look forward to many more recipes from you :)

I found this recipe on the vegetarian times website, not sure if it is yours or theirs. I thought it was very tasty and am going to try just using the marinade as a glaze for tofu. Importantly, some seitan is not vegan as it has honey.

Amy,
thanks for the mention of seitan. As a Vegan I NEVER trust anything is safe. Even if its a product I buy consistently I check the ingredient list everytime, I've even found products labeled Vegan to contain honey and other "un-vegan" ingredients. That said if you are buying plain seitan (not chicken or stir-fry style) chance are it's honey free. Thanks again.

We had this and YUM it was good! I'm thinking it was so much like chicken that it was almost hard to eat (but everyone gobbled it and there were no leftovers!).

Thanks for the great recipe!

However, if water flows too quickly, it does not have the time get

absorb all the toxic contamination. While heavy metals like lead and mercury may possibly be eliminated,
essential minerals are removed as nicely. With the ability to kill pathogens as they pass by the ultraviolet light makes
these water treatment systems the least invasive.
