Our Apple-Seitan Stir Fry really is a filling dish that perfectly melds the various flavors
found in the ingredients and the spices. In addition, the texture is
fantastic and features fruity apples and crispy water chestnuts, among
other terrific ingredients, like peppers and onions.
This stir fry dish is great anytime but as fall approaches here in the northeast, and apple season is at its peak, this dish really delivers! The apples make it fruity and crisp, the spices make it savory. Everything about the apple-seitan combination is a flavorful delight
But the clincher
here is the seitan. Done in thin medallions and stir-fried just right,
the seitan might even fool the most ardent meat lover!

How we make it
Combine jam, Bragg's or soy sauce, water and cornstarch in a small bowl then set aside.
In a large non-stick skillet, heat sesame oil over medium high heat. Add seitan and ginger and stir-fry until seitan is browned, about 3-5 minutes.
Transfer seitan and ginger to bowl. Add canola oil to skillet. Stir-fry peppers, water chestnuts, and apples until peppers are crisp tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Add seitan and scallions back into skillet. Stir-fry 3 to 5 minutes. Add jam mixture. Continue to stir-fry one to two minutes, or until sauce thickens. Season to taste with black pepper.
Serve over soba noodles with a side of fresh fruit such as seedless red grapes.
