Make your own quick and easy Moo Shu Seitan Stir Fry! This one skillet vegetarian recipe is a sweet and savory delight that comes together in 20 minutes or less.
Last night I got together with a couple of friends to work on vision boards for the coming year. My goals for 2018 are pretty simple. I’d like to focus on streamlining our routines at home a bit, make more time for home cooking and quality time with friends, and of course, eat more vegetables.
I was raised as a vegetarian, and in all honesty, it’s still the way that I prefer to eat. I have fallen off the wagon a bit over that past few years though, and I find myself all too often leaning on meat or poultry to fill the protein section of my plate. This year, I’ve decided to ditch that habit and get back into making myself healthy meals that focus on veggies and plant-based proteins, and this simple seitan stir fry was just the right way to get started.
This recipe is super quick, and easy to throw together. Just whisk up a simple marinade for the seitan, shred some veggies, and you are good to go. Dinner can be ready in as little as ten minutes if you opt for a few shortcuts like using bagged coleslaw instead of chopping your own cabbage and carrot, or going with microwaved rice on the side. If you’d rather do things the hard way, try steaming up a bowl of wild rice or making your own Mandarin pancakes to go along with your seitan stir fry.
Want to make your seitan stir fry suitable for vegans? Just leave the eggs out and you’ll be all good. (Though you might also want to take a close look at the hoisin sauce ingredients. I’m not sure that hoisin is universally vegan.) Prefer to take your moo shu in a more carnivorous direction? Swap out the seitan for any cooked protein you like. Chicken and pork are the most classic options.
