Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1/2 cup water
1/3 cup ketchup
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp dried red pepper flakes
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 cup thinly sliced onion
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 8-oz package of seitan, cut into strips
1 red bel pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
2 cups snow peas
8 cups cooked basmati or jasmine rice

Combine first seven ingredients in a small bowl, stir to mix, then set aside.

In a large skillet or wok, heat sesame oil and add onion slices. Cook over high heat, stirring often, until onion begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Add mushroom and cook about 3 minutes.

Add seitan strips to mushrooms along with bell pepper, zucchini, and snow peas. Cook over medium-hig heat, stirring constantly, until vegetables are just barely tender, about 3 minutes. Add reserved sauce mixture and cook, stirring constantly until sauce is clear and thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve over cooked rice.
