Health Highlights


2 cup Water (boiling)
29 gm Shiitake mushroom, dried
2 cup Seitan (wheat gluten) (thinly sliced)
2 tbsp Saké
30 gm Garlic sauce (2 tablespoons' worth, preferably black bean garlic sauce)
2 tsp Cornstarch
2 tbsp Canola oil
1 tbsp Garlic (finally chopped)
1 tbsp minced Ginger root
4 cup Green/yellow string beans, raw
2 cup Brown rice, short-grain, cooked
1/4 tsp Salt

Combine 2 cups boiling water and mushrooms in a small bowl; cover and let stand for 20 minutes. Drain in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1/2 cup soaking liquid. Rinse mushrooms; drain well. Discard mushroom stems; thinly slice mushroom caps.

Combine reserved liquid, sake, garlic sauce, and cornstarch in a small bowl; stir with a whisk, and set mixture aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add seitan to pan, and stir-fry 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Place seitan in a medium bowl. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger to pan; stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add mushrooms and beans; cover and cook 3 minutes. Add bean sauce mixture to pan; cook 1 minute or until sauce slightly thickens. Add seitan to pan; cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Combine rice and salt; serve seitan mixture over rice. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.
