Seitan Creole

What you need: 

16 ounces of seitan (I prefer White Wave Chicken Flavor) cut in bite size pieces
1 tablespoon oil (olive is good)
1 onion diced
1 green pepper cut in bite size pieces
1/3 cup of soy sauce
1 28 ounce can of tomatoes, I prefer diced
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Tabasco, to taste optional
1 cup brown rice
1 box chopped, frozen okra thawed

What you do: 

In a separate covered sauce pan cook rice.
Saute onion, garlic and green pepper in oil until onion is translucent. Stir in soy sauce, tomatoes, and cayenne. Bring to a boil. Add in green pepper and seitan in bite size pieces (include any juice you may have, it adds flavor to the dish). Cover and simmer for 50 minutes. Stir in Okra. Simmer 10 more minutes. Serve over hot rice with Tabasco for those willing to handle true Cajun spiciness.

1.5 hour, 1 hour

This was quite good. I used some extra cayenna because it really wasn't spicy enough for me. I added jasmine rice and left out the thawed greens. I loved how the peppers and onions picked up the flavor of the tomato and spice. I may make this again.


This dish was seriously great! I used fresh green beans instead of frozen okra because I like the taste of fresh veggies and happened to have green beans on hand.

I didn't have any cayenne pepper so I used a little red pepper flakes. I though mine was wonderful and my mom made a comment on it being a little spicey, not in a bad way.

I really recommend trying this!
