Seitan, Mushroom, and Onion Stir-Fry

sliced red onions

This simple seitan dish is great choice for hearty appetites, and a warming dish for nippy evenings. Lots of red onion adds great flavor, and the mushrooms bolster the “meaty” quality of the seitan.

Serves: 4 to 6

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large red onions, quartered and sliced
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 to 10 ounces baby bella (cremini), or portabella mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 to 1 1/2 pound seitan, cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup natural stir-fry or teriyaki sauce, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a large skillet or stir-fry pan. Add the onions and sauté over medium heat until golden. Add the mushrooms, then cover and cook until they are done to your liking, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Stir in the seitan, peas, and stir-fry sauce. Turn the heat up to medium-high and stir-fry until the seitan chunks are touched by golden-brown spots.

Season with pepper and serve. Pass around additional stir-fry sauce for individual servings.
