Default "Beef" Teriyaki Stir Fry

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

1 1/2 cups vital wheat gluten
1 1/2 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
1 tablespoon tahini
olive oil
1 bunch rainbow chard, stems sliced and leaves coarsely chopped
5 carrots, sliced on the diagonal
1/4 cup mirin
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons minced ginger
3 tablespoons minced garlic
red pepper flakes, to taste
2 tablespoons corn starch
2 tablespoons water

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 375 degrees Fahreneheit. Generously oil a large cookie sheet.
Combine the wheat gluten and nutritional yeast. Whisk together the water, liquid smoke and tahini paste. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together with your hands until combined. It will be wet. Knead for a minute or so. Flatten out the dough as much as possible and tear into bite-sized strips. Place on the cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. Set aside.
*I should mention here that my seitan was in the fridge for a couple of days and it was wetter from condensation when I stir fried it. If you go straight from oven to stir fry, yours may caramelize better but may also stick to the pan more. Don't be afraid of the oil!*
Prepare the chard, carrots, garlic and ginger.
Combine the mirin, soy sauce and sugar. Stir in the minced ginger.
Combine the corn starch and water to make the thickener.
Heat a wok between medium and medium-high heat. Drizzle with oil and add the baked seitan. Stir frequently, browning the seitan, 3-4 minutes. Remove from the wok. Drizzle some more oil and add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes, cooking 30 seconds. Remove and add to the seitan.
Add the carrots and chard stems to the wok. Slowly add the chard leaves, wilting them in. Pour in the mirin and soy sauce mixture. You can add some water at this point if you would like to make more sauce. Add the seitan and garlic back in and pour in the corn starch and water mixture. Remove from the heat and stir to combine. The sauce will thicken.

Default Sesame Tofu Stirfry

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small zucchini, diced
5 to 6 shoots of asparagus
1 small head bok choy
1 pound firm or extra firm tofu, cubed
1/2 cup vegetable stock
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 tablespoons Splenda
2 tablespoons sesame oil
salt and pepper
cayenne pepper
paprika
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed in 1 tablespoon water

Directions:

This is good served with rice. If you want to make rice, start cooking it while you prepare the stir fry.

1) Heat oil in a large skillet and fry the ginger and garlic in oil for about 2 minutes on medium heat. Add in the vegetables and fry until soft. Add the tofu and fry for about 5 minutes. You can use almost any vegetables you want, I just used what I had on hand.

2) Add the vegetable stock, soy sauce, sugar, and sesame oil. Season with salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne to taste. I personally like a lot of spice so I usually use 1 teaspoon of cayenne and 1/2 teaspoon of paprika with just a few dashes of salt and pepper.

3) Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Just before removing it from the heat, add the cornstarch mixture to thicken it, mixing welll.

Default Shirlee's Famous Thai Stir Fry

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

1 pound of silken firm tofu, cubed
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
1 white onion, diced
1 package of petite broccoli florets
1 8oz. can of water chestnuts
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
2-3 tablespoons lite soy sauce
2-3 tablespoons spicy Thai chili sauce
sesame seed oil
1/4 cup of water

Directions:

Coat wok with sesame seed oil and turn heat to medium.

Dice peppers and onion, set aside.

Cut silken firm tofu into cubes and throw into heated wok.

Add 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, 1 tablespoon of lite soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon of spicy Thai chili sauce to tofu. Cook until lightly brown.

In a separate pot, begin to boil water for rice. I prefer to use Minute Brown Rice because it cooks fast and taste yummy!

After tofu is golden brown, add in the peppers, onion, broccoli, water chestnuts, and a 1/4 cup of water.

Add in the remaining garlic, lite soy sauce, spicy Thai chili sauce, and 1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper.

Cook until peppers have softened.

Default Tofu-Eggplant Saute

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

1/3 block of firm tofu, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
a handful of mushrooms, chopped
a third of a medium eggplant cut into 1/2inch by 3 inch thick strips
1 clove garlic, minced
half of an onion , sliced
1 cup tomato sauce- I used roasted garlic
a pinch of oregano, basil, pepper and fresh parsley
half cup vegetable stock, set aside
cooking spray

Directions:

Heat a fry pan to high heat. Use cooking spray, and fry onion and garlic, as they start to brown , and eggplant, and mushrooms. As they start to brown, add tofu. As tofu starts to brown add some of the stock, so the mixture doesn't stick to the pan. Keep adding stock until all the veggies and the tofu are brown and soft, and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and add sauce and spices. Stir all together and return to a reduced heat, to heat through. Serves 2, but you can multiply. *You may not need to use all the stock or you may have to add more, it varies.

Default Tuna Cerviche Recipe

Ingredients
  • 400 gram sushi grade tuna
  • 6 gloves garlic
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper
  • Handful of parsley or cilantro
Directions

Peel and chop the garlic. Put in a bowl with the olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Mix with a fork.

Cut the tuna into thin (about 1/4th inch or 1/2 cm) sashimi like slices.

Divide the tuna equally over 4 plates. Pour the dressing over the tuna.

For garnishing, top with pepper and parsley (or cilantro)

Tips

The success of this recipe lies in the quality of the ingredients. Buy the best tuna and olive oil you can find.

For olive oil, you may use an organic or wild, cold pressed extra virgin olive oil.

The garlic can make this recipe quite spicy. I like that, but if you it too much, you can use less.

This is such a great recipe, it's very quick and easy to make, it's ridiculously delicious, and it looks nice on your plate.

Healthy: The raw fish provides the important omega 3 fatty acids. These boosts immune system, thins your blood and keeps you warm in the cold weather. The garlic provides anti fungal, anti bacterial, anti viral and anti parasites properties. The parsley provides iron.
