Seitan, also called wheat gluten, is a delicious vegetarian protein. Look for it in health-food stores or in the produce section of your supermarket. It comes seasoned in a variety of ways, so choose your favorite.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoon oil, olive, extra-virgin
  • 1 medium pepper(s), red, bell

  • 8 ounce(s) mushroom, white
    quartered

    In a large nonstick skillet or wok, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the bell pepper, leeks, mushrooms, garlic, ginger, and salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are crisp-tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
