Recipe Ingredients for Kung Pao "Chicken"

3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp ginger, grated
1 1/2 c water
1/4 c soy sauce
1/4 c rice vinegar
1 cube vegetable bouillon
1/4 tsp sriracha
1 bell pepper, diced
5 oz mushrooms, diced
8 oz water chestnuts, drained and diced
12 oz seitan, diced
2 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp sesame oil

Recipe Directions for Kung Pao "Chicken"

  1. Combine all of the sauce ingredients together: the garlic, ginger, water, soy sauce, vinegar, bouillon, and sriracha. Combine the sauce with all of the chopped veggies and seitan in the slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

  2. About 30 minutes before serving, turn up the slow cooker to high. Make a thickener by mixing the cornstarch with some of the sauce from the slow cooker in a small cup, then add it back to the slow cooker.

  3. Right before serving, stir in the sesame oil. Serve over steamed rice, and top with chopped peanuts (opt.).
