Awesome Vegan Chow Mein
1 - 14 oz bag refrigerated chow mein noodles (already cooked, just need to heat up)
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce (I use Soy Vay Veri Veri brand)
vegetables of choice, fresh or frozen
prepared seitan, cut into small chunks (I used an 8 oz package)
1/4 cup water
sesame seeds, optional (garnish)
1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water
I'm not trying to claim this is authentic Chinese food or that my measurements are perfect... but this tastes really good!
1. Fry seitan in olive oil until lightly browned. Add veggies of choice (I used frozen broccoli, snap peas, green onions, and shredded carrots). Cooking times may vary with your veggies so be sure to cook the ones that take the longest first and add frozen/quickly cooking veggies last. Take off heat and put aside when your veggies are done cooking.
2. In a large pot, wok, or pan heat up the noodles with olive oil, teriyaki sauce, and water for a few minutes, stirring constantly until heated.
3. Add the seitan/veggie mixture to the noodles and stir for one minute. Add the cornstarch/water mixture, mix some more until sauce thickens and your noodles are hot.
Top with sesame seeds to garnish. Enjoy!
