    Haleth's Note:

    A warm and hearty meal, full of ginger. I made this to mimic a non-vegetarian dish that a friend had in a Vietnamese restaurant. Serve it with rice to absorb all the juices.

      Tasty and pretty easy. I used home-made seitan and sauteed in broth rather than oil to cut back on the fat a little. I served over a mixture of whole grains with a side of steamed broccoli. We thought that it was a little on the bland side and would add more garlic, onions and something spicy next time. Thanks for posting, this was a fun recipe to try.

      This gets five stars because DH is still talking about it, and has informed me that I can make it again. High praise indeed!! :D This was our first taste of seitan. I will make my own, but I bought it this time, to see if we'd like it. I made the recipe as stated, except I added some red pepper flakes to the garlic/ginger saute step. I will probably add some onions, and I would think this would be flexible to whatever vegetables were available. We ate it over brown rice. A welcome addition to my "meatless that we loved" cookbook!
