Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables : Cut the broccoli florets into small pieces, peel the stalks then dice them into ½ cm pieces. Thinly slice the shallot and mince the garlic. Cut the seitan into 2 cm strips. Set aside.
  2. Put the sesame seeds in a small pan and heat them over medium heat a few minutes, with some stirring, until they are lightly coloured. Set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the shallot and garlic then sauté until they are softened, 2-3 min. Add the broccoli and water and continue to cook, with occasional stirring, until the mixture is dry, about 3-4 min. Add the seitan then continue to cook.
  4. Meanwhile, combine the broth, soy sauce, and cornstarch in a small bowl, then pour this mixture into the skillet. Cook, with constant stirring, until the mixture is no longer cloudy, 1-2 min.
  5. Remove the skillet from the heat, stir in the sesame oil and seeds. Serve.
