Seitan in Peanut Sauce or Vegetarian Gai Tua

Sharing is caring!

This is a delicious modification of a classic Thai dish! You’ve probably had the chicken version if you’re a meat eater, and I’m sure you could substitute meat for the seitan, however, I urge you to give the seitan a try. Seitan is a meat substitute made from wheat gluten. Seitan comes the closest to real meat that a vegetarian or vegan can have. Seitan really picks up the flavor of whatever marinade it’s put into. If you’ve ever had ‘mock duck’ at a Thai restaurant, then you’ve had seitan before. It can be found at natural food or Asian food stores.
