Find more healthy plant-based recipes on our Vegan recipes page.

Serves 4 / Ingredient tips: Seitan is a meat substitute made from wheat gluten. If you can't find Asian-marinated seitan, make your own by marinating plain seitan in teriyaki sauce overnight. Look for black bean-garlic sauce in the Asian food aisle; it's wonderful added to any stir-fry or soup. For less spice, use fewer serrano chiles.
