Pineapple Sweet and Sour Seitan
From: Chef

This recipe tastes remarkably like my favorite dish at the vegan chinese place in new york. I got it from a website of vegan recipes:


  • 1 onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon grated gingerroot
  • 1 (20 ounce) can unsweetened pineapple chunks, in juice
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 24-36 pieces baked seitan or fried seitan
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch, dissolved in
  • 2 tablespoons cole water

Saute onion, garlic, and ginger.

When onion begins to get translucent, add pineapple, peppers, sugar, vinegar, ketchup, and soy sauce.

When this comes to a boil, add the seitan and the dissolved cornstarch.

Cook over high heat until the sauce thickens and the seitan is heated through.

Serve over brown rice.
