“Buddhist’s Delight” (Seitan and Vegetable Stew)
Posted By Nava On January 16, 2011 @ 9:46 pm In Global Stews,Seitan Recipes,Seitan Recipes,Vegan Dinner Recipes | No Comments
 Inspired by a favorite vegetarian Chinese restaurant dish, this stew is enhanced with protein-packed seitan. Made from cooked wheat gluten, seitan is available in most natural food stores. Gluten-free? Substitute an equivalent amount of tofu for the seitan. Adapted from Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons.  Photo by Theresa Rafetto .
Serves: 6 to 8
Drain any broth from the seitan into a soup pot or large, steep-sided stir-fry pan. Cut the seitan into bite-sized chunks and set aside. Add the broccoli, green beans, carrots, and garlic to the pot or pan with the liquid from the baby corn. Bring to a rapid simmer, then lower the heat. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the broccoli and green beans are bright green, making sure there is enough liquid in the pan to keep the bottom moist.
Cook the noodles according to package directions until al dente, then drain and cut into shorter lengths. Set aside until needed.
Meanwhile, add the broth, seitan, mushrooms, ginger, and baby corn to the pan. Bring to a rapid simmer, then lower the heat. Cook over medium-high heat, uncovered, until the vegetables are tender-crisp, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Put the cornstarch in a small bowl or mixing cup and stir in just enough of the liquid from the soup pot to smoothly dissolve it. Slowly pour into the soup pot and simmer just until the broth has thickened up. Stir in the soy sauce and noodles, season with pepper, and serve at once in shallow bowls.
Note: Use frozen organic green beans, unthawed, if fresh are unavailable.
