    1. 1
      IMPORTANT NOTES: The ginger should be a rounded tablespoons Seitan should be bite size. Asparagus should be cut crosswise into 1/2 inch pieces. The pepper should be cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Use the white and green parts of the scallion and it is for garnish. Use garden fresh spring asparagus if you can get it.
    2. 2
      To cook the Jasamine Rice: Bring 3 cups water and a scant 1 tsp kosher salt to a boil and add 2 cups raw white jasamine rice. Cover reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes Remove and let stand covered for 10 minutes. This makes 6 cups.
    3. 3
      In medium bowl combine ginger, garlic, oil, Braggs, sugar and five spice.
    4. 4
      Add setian and liquid [if using tofu or tempeh use water instead of seitan juice] and toss to coat.
    5. 5
      Cover bowl with plastic wrap and marinate for at LEAST 2 hours and up to 3 days in the fridge. For Tofu the longer it sets the more it will taste like the marinade. You want that if you are a beginner who has not made tofu before. Trust me. You also want to marinade the tempeh for a while too. It really won't matter too much on the seitan. The basic flavor was cooked in with the broth when it was made this is just accent like a real meat marinade.
    6. 6
      Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the setian along with the marinade, the asparagus and bell pepper.
    7. 7
      Stir fry until asparagus is bright green tender but crunchy. About 5 to 7 minutes.
    8. 8
      Serve over the rice and garnish with the lime wedges and scallions.
    9. 9
      Cooking includes basic marinate time.
