Chilli and Garlic
Teriyaki Seitan

Serves 2


  • 120g sushi rice
  • 40g brown sugar
  • 175ml water
  • 30ml soy sauce
  • Thumb of ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp sesame or vegetable oil
  • 150g Chilli and Garlic Seitan, cut into large chunks
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped


  • Cook the rice as per the packet instructions. This usually takes around half an hour.
  • Put the sugar and water into a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the soy sauce and ginger and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes or until starting to thicken.
  • In a small dish or ramekin, mix together the cornflour and 1 tbsp water until completely smooth. Pour into the saucepan while stirring the teriyaki sauce to prevent lumps from forming. Add the rice vinegar and stir again. Cook for a further 3-4 minutes or until the sauce is thick and glossy. Remove from the heat.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the seitan. Fry for a few minutes until starting to crisp up on the outside, then add the teriyaki sauce. Stir to coat and cook for one or two minutes more until hot through.
  • Divide the rice between two bowls and add a handful of spinach on the side. Top the rice with the teriyaki seitan, then sprinkle with the sesame seeds and spring onions.
