  2. Leave to marinade in the fridge so that the flavours mix well together.
  3. Fry the seitan at a high temperature in olive oil and mix with the sauce.
  4. Chop up the nuts coarsely. Soak the rice sheets individually in hot water.
  5. If you are making spring rolls, take the whole sheet and for small dim sums cut each sheet into four.

“I am just back from a week of cooking for a group of beginner yoga teachers. I had never cooked with fresh seitan before and when I was presented with this product I felt rather ill at ease about it. Then I read the simple description on the pack and after baking it on both sides for 2x 5min I ended up with a great looking product which a lot of the participants really enjoyed eating. We were surprised about the intense bite and flavour sensation. After a week of cooking for the participants there was still some seitan left over at the end, so I took a portion home with me. My partner has made delicious rice waffle burgers with curry, onion, salad, pepper and shoots from it. Much better than a lot of the veggie burgers that you find in the shops. It is a truly delicious treat!”
