This simple seitan stir-fry 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.
  • 2 tablespoons safflower or other neutral vegetable 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 1½ pounds seitan, cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 2 tablespoons natural low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 to 1½ cups frozen green peas, thawed
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  1. 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.
  2. Stir in the seitan and soy sauce Turn the heat up to medium-high and stir-fry until the seitan chunks are touched by golden-brown spots.
  3. Stir in the peas and stir fry for a minute or so longer. Season with pepper and serve.
