Seitan Teriyaki

Warning: This is, by far, the least organized video I have made. I was completely unprepared. Usually when I cook (even for myself, not just on blogs), I read the recipe enough times that its semi-memorized and I can focus on cooking instead of reading the recipe. But alas, alack, this time I did not.

So, without further ado, here is Seitan Teriyaki, with my guest hippie, Cheryl! (Yes, there are two vegetarian hippies in my life. More cow for me.)

For those who could not follow that (which is probably everyone except for Cheryl and I) here is the recipe.

1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup plus 1 Tb Rice Vinegar
1/4 Cup Water
1 inch Ginger, grated
Zest and Juice of 1/2 Orange

Other stuff:
8 Oz Seitan
10 ish stalks Broccolini
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
Sesame Oil (to cook in)

Combine saucey things and put on the stove to boil for about 20 minutes. Stir fry the Seitan in Sesame Oil and set aside. Stir fry the Broccolini and Garlic. Put everything back together and TADA! Seitan Teriyaki. Serve with rice, if that tickles you. It tickled me.

See? Not so hard. Most stir fries are like that - cook things, add sauce, eat.

PS - Original recipe was found at Vegan Yum Yum


  1. Looks delicious! But I will be thinking of "dog treats" when I try it at home.

  2. Yum- I love that stuff...ahhh reminds me of my ol health food store days...sigh! Fun concept with the videos!

  3. Aunt Nancy - you can substitute anything you want, both with the protein and veggie. This morning I was thinking of subbing in chicken and egg plant... sound good?

    Michelle - Yeaaaa we def had to run around Whole Foods for a while to find that stuff. Keep watching!
