  • 1 pound seitan cut into strips (can use tofu or tempeh instead also)
  • 1/2 tsp vegetable broth paste
  • 1 c water
  • 1/2 c low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsps sriracha
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 stalks green onions finely sliced
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 8 c Broccoli


  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, add your seitan and saute just until it starts to crisp up, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. (You can also use cubed tofu or tempeh for this step instead - but it will alter the macros)
  • Add broth paste, water, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, sriracha, garlic, and green onions to the pot. Cook for 5-7 minutes until it is a low boil.
  • Take about 1/3 c of the liquid out of the pot and whisk the cornstarch into it. Add this mixture back to the pot and stir it in to coat.
  • Add the broccoli to the pot and stir it in well. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes until the broccoli is cooked to desired doneness.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions if desired.
