This dish is the demonstration that even the most traditional meaty dishes can be re-created in a meatless version. Mongolian seitan is as appetizing as it looks…
Strips of seitan are stir-fried in a tasty brown sauce (you can use hoisin sauce or make your own) and served with steamed broccoli and rice. The result is a filling and satisfying dish.
The best part is that it is very quick to prepare.
- 200 gr seitan
- 2 broccoli heads
- 1 cup rice (substitute with cauliflower rice for keto)
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- Pinch of sesame seeds
- A few drops of soy sauce
- 2 green onions
Cook the rice in boiling water with a few drops of soy sauce. Rinse the broccoli and chop the florets into bite-size pieces. Steam them for 10 minutes. Rinse the green onions, slice them and set aside. Slice the seitan into strips.
Stir fry the seitan in a large skillet with a little sesame oil. Cook until lightly brown and then add the hoisin sauce. In a glass, dissolve the cornstarch into cold water and add it to the seitan. Cook until the sauce reaches the preferred consistency. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and set aside to rest.
When the rice is cooked, transfer to the serving bowl and top with the seitan and broccoli. Sprinkle the seitan with the green onion and a little parsley.
