Packaged seitan, a vegetarian protein made from wheat gluten, is already seasoned, so there’s no need to marinate it before making this warming dish, which pairs well with brown rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 8-oz. pkg. seitan, drained and halved into 2 thin cutlets
  • 1 Tbs. unbleached flour
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/4 lb. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp.)
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley

Preparation

1. Coat seitan pieces in flour. Heat oil in large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add seitan, and cook 1 to 2 minutes on each side, pressing pieces down to brown evenly. Remove seitan from skillet, and keep warm.

2. Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic to skillet. Sauté 7 to 10 minutes, or until softened and lightly browned. Whisk together red wine, mustard, and thyme in measuring cup. Add to mushroom mixture; season with salt and pepper, if desired; and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Whisk together cornstarch and vegetable broth in same measuring cup, then add to mushroom mixture. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes, or until thickened, stirring constantly. Place seitan cutlets on plates, top with mushroom sauce, and sprinkle with parsley.
