INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the rice

Add the quinoa speckled rice, 1 cup water, and a pinch of salt to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until the water is absorbed and grains are tender, 15 to 18 minutes. (4-serving meal: use 2 cups water)

2
Sauté the vegetables

Heat 2 tsp vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrot, green beans, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Add sautéed vegetables to a bowl and cover to keep warm. (4-serving meal: use 4 tsp vegetable oil) TIP: We will use this skillet again in the next step.

3
Crisp the apricot seitan

Return the large nonstick skillet to medium-high heat with 1 tsp vegetable oil. Add seitan and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned in places, 6 to 8 minutes. Add tamari, rice vinegar, apricot preserves, and a pinch of salt, and toss to coat. Cook until the sauce thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. TIP: For the 4-serving meal, cook the seitan in batches and add more oil as necessary. Add all seitan back to the pan before adding the sauce.

4
Serve

Divide the quinoa speckled rice between large plates. Top with carrots and green beans and sticky apricot seitan. Sprinkle with scallion. Dig in!
