“Beef” and Broccoli over Quinoa

Dish Type: Tofu and Tempeh, and other Soy


  • Ingredients for the Quinoa and Stir-Fry:
  • 1 1/4 cups Dry Quinoa, rinsed well
  • 1 1/2 cups Water
  • 1lb package of Seitan
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 1 large head of Broccoli, chopped into pieces
  • 4 teaspoons Canola Oil
  • Ingredients for the Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Agave Nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Fresh Ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon Black Bean Paste
  • 1/4 cup White Wine
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Broth
  • 2 tablespoons Orange Juice
  • 1 tablespoon Soy Sauce


Bring the water to a boil, add quinoa and reduce heat to medium-low.  Let simmer for 12-15 minutes until tender, let stand 5 minutes.  Fluff with a fork when ready to serve.

Combine the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and mix well to dissolve corn starch.  Set aside.

Heat the two teaspoons canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the seitan, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes to brown.  Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Heat the remaining oil in the same pan over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and garlic; cook for two minutes and add broccoli.  Cover and let cook for 5-10 minutes, checking the broccoli until it is crisp-tender.  When it is, add sauce and browned seitan and cook until the sauce thickens slightly.

Serve with additional soy sauce and Sriracha sauce if desired.
