Red Cabbage Salad with Curried Seitan

Red Cabbage Salad with Curried Seitan

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

The flavor-boosting secret to this salad is gingery prepared mango chutney. The sautéed seitan and shredded cabbage combination tastes great hot or cold.
Dressing
  • ⅓ cup prepared mango chutney
  • ⅓ cup creamy natural peanut butter
Salad
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 8-oz. pkg. seitan, cut into bite-size strips
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
  • ¾ tsp. mild curry powder
  • 6 cups shredded red cabbage (½ small head)
  • 1 small cucumber, sliced into thin half moons (¾ cup)
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced (½ cup)

1. To make Dressing: Blend chutney, peanut butter, and 1/3 cup water in blender until smooth. Set aside.

2. To make Salad: Heat 2 tsp. oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add seitan, and season with salt, if desired. Sauté 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned. Add garlic and remaining 1 tsp. oil, and sauté 30 seconds. Sprinkle with curry powder, and sauté 2 minutes more. Remove from heat, and keep warm.

3. Toss cabbage and cucumber with Dressing in large bowl. Top with warm seitan and green onions.

This was a hit at my house. The dressing was great. I added some carrots as well to give it a little more crunch. Next time I'd probably add a little more curry as the flavor of the seitan was pretty subtle.

Pretty tasty salad! I had to use chorizo seitan, but I think the spiciness complimented the salad. My 5 year old enjoyed the peanut butter dressing quite a bit. Next time I'll probably add a shredded carrot or beet just for diversity and color.

I made this for my lunchbox this week, and it's good. Next time, I'll be making a few updates though: Add shredded carrots- the color will be nice. Add more ginger & black pepper. Maybe it was just my chutney, but I felt like it needed a little more of a kick.
