SEITAN SATAY WITH BAMI GORENG

Pic of Seitan Saté

When I visit my family in Holland, we often have Indonesian food. Every time I come there, the food gets a little more vegan. This satay is my specialty, and I decided for bami goreng as a side dish and a refreshing iced lemongrass tea.

I use my Redmond Multicooker RMC-PM4506E to steam the seitan, but before I had it, I used to put a vegetable steamer in my mini rice cooker, that worked well too.

3 cups of water (720 ml)
1 tablespoon brown sugar

Satay Sauce:
1 garlic clove
1/2 onion
1 tablespoon ginger
1 cup coconut milk (240 ml)
1/2 -1 teaspoon sambal oelek
2 tablespoons ketjap manis
1/4 cup peanut butter (55 g)
2 stalks lemongrass

soy sauce to taste

Bami Goreng:

about 5 oz noodles (about 150 g)
1/2 onion
1 carrot
1/2 cup snap peas
a little red cabbage
1 tablespoon ketjap manis
1 tablespoon soy sauce

for garnishing:
lettuce
veggie kroepoek

 

how to make it:

Mix vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika, onion powder, cumin well, and mix water, broth, apple cider vinegar and soy sauce well in a separate bowl.

Combine dry and liquid ingredients and knead into a soft dough for about a minute, then put it aside for about five minutes.

Heat 2-3 cups water for the tea.
Cut the ends and outer leaves off 6 stalks lemongrass and break 4 of them with a hard object to release the aroma. I use my lime press.
Put the other two aside for garnishing.
Cut 2 broken stalks in halves for the peanut sauce.
Cut 2 broken stalks in halves and put them in the tea water with brown sugar. Stir, bring to a boil and put aside to cool off.

Now return to the seitan mixture.

Knead again and tear into little pieces, then steam it tightly wrapped in parchment paper. I use one sheet cut in halves. This is the way it worked best for me. If not wrapped, the seitan has too much room to expand and can get spongy, and if wrapped in just one sheet, the middle pieces take too long to cook and can become too chewy. Steam for 20 minutes if your steamer has a pressure cooker function or 40 minutes if not. Steaming a little longer is no problem, but if you don’t steam it long enough, you might end up with chewing gum. 

Prepare veggies: cut onion (for sauce and bami goreng), mince ginger, cut carrots and red cabbage, peel garlic, wash lettuce and snap peas and cut lime.

Add coconut milk, sambal oelek, ketjap manis and peanut butter, stir and blend into a smooth sauce.
Heat water for noodles.
Pour peanut sauce back into the pot, bring to a boil, add lemongrass, simmer at very low temperature, stir from time to time.

Heat water for noodles.

Take seitan out, let cool for a moment, then pull pieces apart and roast golden brown in a pan.

Cook noodles according to instructions and combine in a bowl with ketjap manis and soy sauce.
Heat oil in a wok or large pan.

Stir seitan and peanut sauce.

Sauté onion and carrot, then add noodles and stir-fry at moderate heat. Add snap peas and cabbage.

Stir seitan and peanut sauce again, then switch stove off.

This also works very well as a cold buffet in combination with the Sesame Noodle Salad.

Or to take away in a bento-box:

By the way: cleaning the seitan bowl works best for me with rubber gloves and running water. No sponge until all of the residue is gone, as the seitan would stick to it. It does not stick to the gloves though.
