Instructions

  1. Put seitan, veggies (except celery), and herbs and spices in a large pot (Dutch oven or small stock pot will do). Sautee in a little water or veggie broth at medium heat for about 8 minutes, stirring to prevent burning. Add water and tamari and bring to a simmer. Cook about 10 more minutes or until veggies are soft. Add celery (add at end to help retain color and texture).
  2. Mix the 4 T cold water with the cornstarch. Turn off heat under stew. Vigorously stir in cornstarch solution. Turn heat back on under stew and stir until thickened.
