Recipe by Kumquat the Cats fr

This was amazingly tasty and easy to make for a terrific week night meal. I got the recipe from The Vegetarian Starter Guide. In fact the guide is for vegans but this is a tasty sauce that can be adapted to use meat (if you absolutely must). It was too good not to post. Seitan is a meat substitute used in place of chicken or beef. The snow peas go well with the rest of the sauce. I don't eat mushrooms so I left them out.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl make the sauce by whisking together the first 6 ingredients. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and stir-fry mushrooms and seitan until lightly browned and mushrooms have released their juices. Add ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. Let cook a few more minutes, or until any protein you are using is adequately cooked.
  3. Add the sauce and snow peas to skillet. Reduce heat to medium, and let cook until sauce has thickened. This may happen quickly. Add extra water and/or hoisin sauce as necessary. Turn off heat and mix in scallions and cilantro. Serve over rice.
