The recipe I use for seitan is here.

Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 250g seitan (about a quarter of the seitan recipe)
  • 0-1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 300 ml stock (made with 2 tsp stock concentrate)
  • 1 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 large carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1 courgette, sliced
Method
  1. Fry the onion in the oil for 5-10 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the seitan and fry for a couple more minutes.
  2. Add the spices, stock, tomatoes, and carrot. Add extra water to ensure everything starts off covered.
  3. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour 40 minutes.
  4. Add the courgette and simmer for a further 30 minutes.
  5. Serve with plain couscous.
