Recipe by turtledove

I was craving sesame chicken and came up with this.

Didn't have any yellow squash or zucchini so we added broccoli and mushrooms. It took longer to make than expected, and the seitan was kind of a pain, but worth it. The veggies and sauce were our favorite parts so next time I may skip the seitan all together. Served over brown rice.
