This is a delicious modification of a classic Thai dish! You've probably had the chicken version if you're a meat eater, and I'm sure you could substitute meat for the seitan, however, I urge you to give the seitan a try. Seitan is a meat substitute made from wheat gluten. Seitan comes the closest to real meat that a vegetarian or vegan can have. Seitan really picks up the flavor of whatever marinade it's put into. If you've ever had 'mock duck' at a Thai restaurant, then you've had seitan before. It can be found at natural food or Asian food stores.

Directions

  • Combine the ginger, garlic, and curry paste in small bowl. Slowly pour in 1/4 cup coconut milk; stirring until the mixture is smooth. Gently stir in the seitan, coating the seitan with the marinade. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. The longer you let it soak, the more flavorful the seitan will taste!

  • Stir together the remaining coconut milk, peanut butter, sugar, vegetable oil, tamari, chili garlic sauce, and oyster sauce in a medium bowl. Don't worry if it's not completely blended: when you cook it, the various substances will meld wonderfully. Set sauce aside.

  • Lightly coat a large skillet with cooking spray; add the chopped onion; cook over high heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the onion is tender. Stir in the seitan, and cook until the seitan is heated through, about 7 minutes. Pour in the sauce, and stir to combine. Mix in the spinach and green onions; cook 3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened and the spinach is cooked.

Good recipe. Additionally; however seitan may easily be made using vital wheat gluten. Some commercially prepared brands include unnecessary fillers and flavors in their products. Making it yourself is very easy. It's also much less expensive and no doubt healthier. Read More

Made pretty much as stated only used real chicken. I liked it but my husband and kids didn't. I couldn't get a good answer out of them as to what they didn't like about it they just didn't. Read More

I wish I could give this 4.5 stars.. it was almost perfect for me. The only thing was it was a bit too sweet. An extra bit of hot chili sauce fixed it up though. I did make my own seitan as I was unable to find chicken flavored..not difficult and it freezes well. Will make this again for sure Read More

Yum. Made it with sauteed crisp tofu and green beans. Everyone loved it even the picky 7-year-old. Read More
