Orange seitan is a very popular recipe on the internet – see here, here, and here. I decided to give it a try myself. I used the basic sauce from the veganmenu blogspot, and added a few veggies, like roasted red peppers and thinly sliced pea pods. I used the orange peel, as directed in the recipe, but really didn’t like it, and found that it didn’t add anything to the dish. I think it stood well on its own merits without the orange peel. A very delicious dinner. Enjoy!

Orange seitan


one orange, juiced

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon tamari

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons hoisin

2 tablespoons sherry

1 teaspoon ginger, grated

1 teaspoon garlic, minced

1 teaspoon cornstarch


8 ounces seitan, sliced thinly into strips


canola oil (I used about 4 tablespoons)

2 or 3 roasted red peppers, sliced into thin strips

1 cup peas in their pods, sliced thinly into strips

Mix all the sauce ingredients together. Set aside.

Coat the seitan strips with enough cornstarch and stir-fry with canola oil over high heat until crisp. Add the peas and red peppers; stir fry for another minute, then pour the sauce over the seitan and vegetables and stir until the sauce thickens. Serve over jasmine rice. Makes 2 servings.
