INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the rice
Combine the quinoa speckled rice, 1 cup water, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until the grains are tender and all of the water is absorbed, about 15 to 18 minutes.
2
Prepare the vegetables
Peel and thinly slice the carrot. Cut the green beans in half. Thinly slice the scallion.
3
Saute the vegetables
Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tsp vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot, add the sliced carrots, cut green beans, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until browned, about 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer the carrots and green beans to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
4
Crisp the apricot seitan
Return the skillet to medium-high heat with 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot, add the seitan and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned in places, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add the tamari, rice vinegar, apricot preserves, sesame seeds, and a pinch of salt and toss to coat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes.
5
Serve
Divide the quinoa speckled rice between large plates. Top with carrots, green beans, and sticky apricot seitan. Sprinkle with sliced scallions. Tuck in!
