DIRECTIONS

  • To get the most flavor out of this dish, I always make the seitan the day before. Cook the seitan bits in a large pan over medium heat with the vegetable oil until it starts to brown.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Pour the 5 cups of gravy over the seitan and add more tamari to taste.
  • Mix well, cover, and store in the refrigerator overnight.
  • The next day, chop the vegetables and sautee in a wok or large pan over medium heat with the sesame oil. When the vegetables start to brown, add the bowl of gravy and seitan.
  • Simmer the vegetables, seitan and gravy for 10-15 minutes, or until the seitan is heated through and the veggies have softened.
  • While all of this is cooking, make the rice.
  • Scoop rice onto a plate, spoon the Pepper Fake over and enjoy!
