Ingredients

Method

1

Mix all the dry ingredients for the seitan together in a large bowl, add the wet ingredients and mix everything together really well. Turn the dough out on to a work surface and knead for a couple of minutes to develop the gluten.

2

Form the dough into a large sausage shape, wrap tightly in parchment paper, and then in foil, twisting the ends to seal.

3

Place the seitan in a large pan of water and simmer gently for 1 hour. Remove when cooked and leave to cool in the wrapping.

4

When ready to cook, unwrap the setitan and cut into thin strips. Mix the cornflour, five spice and seasoning together in a bowl and toss the seitan strips in this until coated.

5

Heat the oil in a heavy based pan and fry the strips, in batches, for a few minutes until crispy on all sides. Remove and drain on kitchen paper.

6

Drain off most of the oil in the pan, leaving about 1 tablespoon. Add the garlic, ginger, red pepper, carrot and most of the chilli and spring onion. Stir fry for a couple of minutes before mixing together all the sauce ingredients and adding to the pan.

7

Let the sauce bubble and thicken, add the seitan strips to the pan and toss to coat in the sauce.

8

Serve immediately, over rice or noodles, sprinkled with the reserved chilli and spring onions.
