Seitan (pronounced say-tan) has the most similar texture to chicken of any of the vegetarian proteins. It is made with vital wheat gluten, so it is decidedly not gluten-free. The long, slow cooking time allows it to absorb all the enticing flavors in this dish. Consider serving it with Cilantro Rice Pilaf (here).

8 ounces seitan, cut into bite-size pieces 1 cup chopped green beans 1 cup diced onion 1 cup fire-roasted tomatoes, drained 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon smoked paprika ⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth 2 tablespoons coconut cream ¼ cup minced fresh cilantro, for garnish

1. Put the seitan, green beans, onion, tomatoes, coriander, cumin, paprika, red pepper flakes, ginger, and vegetable broth in the slow cooker. Gently stir the ingredients together to combine.

2. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.

3. Allow to the dish to rest, uncovered, for 10 minutes, then stir in the coconut cream and garnish the dish with the cilantro.

SUBSTITUTION TIP If you follow a gluten-free diet, you can use tempeh instead of seitan. It may crumble slightly, but the
flavors will taste just as good, and be sure to use gluten-free low-sodium vegetable broth.
