Shitake and Seitan Stir-Fry

Using a wok is a very energy- efficient method of cooking. This is very tasty, so make double if you are serving a hungry family.

Serves 2

  • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp plus 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp plus 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup seitan, chopped into 1- inch pieces
  • 3 to 4 scallions, chopped
  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper
  • 1 cup asparagus, chopped into 1- inch pieces
  • 1 cup sliced shitake mushrooms
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli

In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the hoisin sauce, 1 tbsp of the sesame oil, 2 tbsp of the soy sauce, the rice vinegar, agave syrup, vegetable broth, garlic, ginger, and cornstarch. Bring to a simmer and simmer until the mixture thickens, 5 to 7 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside.
In a large wok or skillet, heat the remaining 2 tbsp sesame oil and 2 tbsp soy sauce over medium- high heat. Add the seitan and stir- fry until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the scallions, bell pepper, asparagus, shiitakes, and broccoli and stir- fry another 2 to 3 minutes, until the vegetables are crisp- tender.
Add the sauce to the stir- fry, stir well, and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the broccoli is softened. Serve over soba noodles if you like.
