I love Seitan!, although not easy to find, there is a lovely couple, Caroline & Laurent from @L’ISSUE that make Vegan charcuteries (They have a Facebook page should you want their coordinates). I happen to prefer their products to others, in part for the quality of their ingredients. Their products are sold at IGA’s in St-Jérôme, Prévost, St-Sauveur, Ste-Agathe, Sainte-Adèle, Mont-Tremblant, and Bourassa in St-Sauveur, Ste-Agathe, Mirabel, BioSatva, Les Petits oignons & L’étalage. For the above recipe I used their LE COSTAUD DES LAURENTIDES.
400 grams of Seitan, sliced into thin strips
2 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 cup of Tamari
1/2 cup of water
3 tsp of grated ginger
3 minced garlic cloves
1/2 cup of coconut sugar
To make the sauce, add all the ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, whisk until everything is combined and coconut sugar has entirely dissolved. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, until it reduces slightly. Set aside.
Pour some cornstarch in a bowl and coat each slice of Seitan shaking off the excess.
Heat the oil in a skillet on medium-high and brown the Seitan on each side. Add the sauce to the Seitan. Cook until the sauce has reduced and coated the Seitan.
You now have made delicious crispe Seitan Asian style !
You can serve in a bowl with rice or other, veggies and top with green onions, sesame seeds, I added a little picked onions that I had made the previous day and pumpkin seeds.
