We’re creating vegan versions of classic takeout meals starting with this decadent and savory Seitan with Broccoli.

Start by sautéing broccoli florets with garlic, salt, and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil until tender, adding a touch of water to steam. While the broccoli is cooking, chop and crumble the seitan and toss together with chickpea flour and pull together the sauce by combining the ginger, soy sauce, maple syrup and sesame oil. 

When the broccoli is done, set it aside and sauté the seitan until crispy, then pour over the sauce and simmer for a few minutes, allowing the sauce to stick to the seitan. Add the broccoli back to the pan and cook for a few more minutes until warm. 

Serve in a bowl with a base of fresh steamed rice and top with scallions and sesame seeds. Cozy up on the couch with a good movie and enjoy this savory Seitan with Broccoli bowl with a glass of red wine.

  • 16 oz seitan
  • 1 c broccoli
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp chickpea flour
  • ¼ c jasmine rice
  • ¼ c scallions
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • ½ tbsp olive oil


  • Chop up the broccoli and sauté in a pan over medium heat with the garlic, a sprinkle of salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil for 5 minutes. You may need to add a touch of water to allow the broccoli to steam. When slightly al dente and the pan is dry take out the broccoli and set aside.
  • Cook the rice by bringing the rice, a 2:1 ratio of water and a pinch of salt to a boil. Turn down to low and cook for 15 minutes. Make the sauce by whisking together the ginger, soy sauce, maple syrup and sesame oil.
  • When the broccoli is done, chop the seitan into crumbles and toss with the chickpea flour, a sprinkle of salt and pepper and sauté in the pan over medium heat with the garlic and a drizzle of olive oil for 10 minutes. Then pour the sauce over the seitan, stir to combine, and allow the sauce to stick to the seitan, then add the cooked broccoli and sauté for a minute to combine and heat up.
  • Plate the seitan with broccoli on top of a scoop of rice and top with the scallions, sesame seeds and a drizzle of sriracha for some extra heat if you like.
