Have you ever tried seitan before? It may just be one of my new favorite meat substitutes. The thing that stands out about it is the texture. It's hearty, almost meat like (which is probably why it's often called wheat meat), and really stays together when its cook. Plus it takes on flavor and marinades really well. This all makes it perfect for a stir-fry, like this Spicy Seitan, Green Bean, and Mushroom Stir-fry. The sauce is a simple, yet flavorful one, made with soy sauce, ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, and as much Asian garlic chili paste as you can handle. We like to really load it in there since we love spice around here. Served with brown rice, quinoa, or some cauliflower rice - it's a delicious and healthy meal.
