Introduction: Vegan "Beef" Stew
This recipe makes a nice warm meal in the winter. Seitan is used for the meatiness.
Step 1: Ingredients
This should serve 2 to 4 people.
1 Box of West Soy Seitan
Knorr Vegetable bouillon
Can of corn
Can of peas
Season to taste with:
Lawry's Seasoned Pepper
Janes Crazy Mixed up Salt
Smidge of Poultry Seasoning.
Step 2: Cut the Onions
Cut the onions in to 1/4" slices and then in to 8ths.
Add to large pot.
Step 3: Cut Carrots
Cut the carrots in to slices, cut the slices in half.
Add to pot with onions.
Step 4: Turn on the Heat
With the onions and carrots in the pot, add some olive oil, salt and pepper and saute for about 5 minutes.
Step 5: Add Water and Bouillon
Add 5 cups of water and the appropriate bouillon, usually 2.5 cubes.
Step 6: Cut Potatoes
Cut the potatoes in to 1 inch chunks.
When the water in the pot comes to a boil add the potatoes.
Start your watch, let cook for 35 minutes.
Step 7: Hail Seitan
While the stew is cooking cut your seitan in to smaller pieces.
Step 8: Soy Sauce? Yes Soy Sauce.
Dip the pieces of seitan in soy sauce.
Put the seitan on tin foil and sprinkle with fresh ground pepper.
I cook it in the toaster oven on two medium toast cycles, flipping between toast cycles.
If you don't have a toaster oven, heat the regular oven to 400F cooke for 10 minutes, flip the seitan and cook for 5 more minutes. Set aside.
Step 9: Mix It All Up
At 35 minutes add your can of corn (drained), 1/2 can of peas (drained) and seitan.
Simmer for 10 more minutes.
