Seitan Lettuce Wraps

What you need: 

3 tablespoons peanut oil, divided
2 cups homemade seitan, minced
1 cup bamboo shoots, minced
3/4 cup mushrooms (I prefer straw)
1/4 cup onions, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon rice vinegar
1/4 teaspoon corn starch
lettuce leaves, as needed

What you do: 

1. Heat 2 tablespoons peanut oil in wok. Stir fry seitan until it begins to brown. Add shoots and mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes, stirring.
2. Add the last tablespoon oil along with onions and garlic. Cook 2 minutes more. Mix soy, sugar, and vinegar in small bowl and add to wok, cooking until most liquid is cooked off.
3. Sprinkle corn starch and mix thoroughly. Ready to serve with iceberg or romaine leaves.
If your seitan recipe includes soy sauce, you may want to halve the soy in this or the end product will be too salty. I have not tried with store-bought seitan.

I really enjoyed this recipe.  I had some extra seitan and it worked well.  The one thing I would say is that perhaps there was a bit too much oil. I dried mine out on a paper towel before I put it in the lettuce leaves.
