TOOLS

INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the rice

Combine the quinoa speckled rice, 1¼ cups 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 water is absorbed, about 15 to 18 minutes.

2
Prepare the ingredients

Roughly chop the seitan. Thinly slice the celery. Peel and mince 1 tsp ginger. Peel and mince the garlic. Trim, deseed, and thinly slice the red bell pepper.

3
Crisp the seitan

Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp vegetable oil. Once hot, add minced ginger, minced garlic, and chopped seitan and cook, tossing frequently, until crisp in places, about 4 to 5 minutes.

4
Sauté the vegetables

Add the sliced celery, sliced pepper, and Chinese five-spice to the skillet with the seitan. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 1 to 2 minutes.

5
Add the sauce

Add the Bali BBQ sauce to the skillet and toss well to combine. Cook until the sauce is sticky, about 1 minute. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt.

6
Serve

Separate the romaine leaves and remove any grit from between the leaves. Fill the lettuce leaves with some quinoa speckled rice and top each with the Chinese bbq seitan, peanuts, and crispy onions. Serve any remaining rice on the side.
