Here is a quick, easy, tasty and nutritious dinner. I typically serve it with rice. Today I tossed it with angel hair pasta.
The heart of the “easy” part comes from Trader Joe’s General Tso sauce. Most of the delicious and nutritious comes from oven roasted vegetables.
I start with a package of Seitan. This is often referred to as mock-chicken. Note that Seitan is essential gluten so this is NOT a gluten-friendly recipe. You can use the Seitan as is or for a little extra crunch, dust the Seitan with corn-starch and pan fry in a pan for a few minutes on each site over medium-high heat as I’ve done here.
Next, clean and dice your vegetable and oven roast them under the broiler until they are slightly browned. The vegetable include eggplant, red peppers, onion and mushrooms.
Afterwards, heat up the General Tso sauce (about 5 tablespoons) and toss with roasted vegetables in a wok or large pot. I will often add a half of a cup of broth to help distribute the sauce over all the vegetables.
Next add the Seitan and you are done!
Serve with rice or as I’ve done here, pre-cook some noodles and stir in with the veggies and Setian.
