Teriyaki Sauce

Teriyaki Seitan Bowl with mashed Kabocha Squash (Vegan)

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

Teriyaki Seitan Bowl with mashed Kabocha Squash (Vegan)

  1. Steam your squash until just tender and bright orange, about 15 minutes. Strain and using the same water steam your broccoli until just tender and bright green.

  2. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium high and throw in your sliced seitan. Give it a good sear letting it brown on both sides about 5-6 minutes. 

    While your seitan is cooking give your squash a good mash. I like it plain but feel free to add "butter", salt and pepper.

  3. When the seitan is ready throw in the drained steamed broccoli and sesame seeds. Drizzle enough teriyaki into the pan to coat I use about 1/3 cup but go wild.

    Toss to coat over medium heat about 2 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat. Scoop squash into bowls, top with teriyaki seitan and pass the sauce.
