10 minute Seitan “beef” and Broccoli

10 minute Seitan "beef" and Broccoli

Literally my new favorite thing in the whole wide world! I recently got in to seitan after ordering a vegan meal plan (which didn’t go so well but I learned a lot). One of the items for protein was seitan and while I’ve made it myself before, I had never bought it. Of course, I loaded up on it and man oh man did I eat it QUICKLY! It’s so flavorful on it’s own but when made into a meal it just gets even better!

I was eating it over my cauliflower fried rice and then decided that I needed to change it up and give it a little sauce. I researched a ton of different beef and broccoli recipes and finally decided to mash them all together to make this and VOILA — it’s amazing. I loved how much the ginger came through, I loved the saltiness of soy sauce, and I loved how it got a little bit thick and coated the seitan and broccoli! Seriously so fast and so amazing. Definitely becoming a part of my monthly meal plans.
