Fat Kids On A Diet

After a reality check at 6:30 this morning at our Annual Wellness Check Up, Amy and I decided that it's time to get back in shape, and what better way to do it, than to get rid of all of the wonderful foods that we enjoy a little way too much, so good bye Meat, Cheese, Milk, Eggs, Ice Cream & all that yummy stuff. Broccoli and Rice can be just as wonderful!!! (at least, we're going to psych ourselves into believing that)
Which leads me to our first recipe, tonight's dinner!
Amy found a recipe on, since she didn't copy it, she went from memory, so you get Amy's interpretation of someone else's idea.

Teriyaki Orange Seitan and Brocolli
Saute 1 package Seitan in a tsp. of olive oil or water, so it does not stick to the pan. When lightly browned, move to a bowl.
Sear 1 bunch broccoli florettes on high heat, when they start to color, turn them. reduce heat to low.
add 5 sliced portabellos , 2 tbs. Tamari, 2 tbs. Teriyaki, either homemade or jarred. 2 tbs. orange juice, and 2 crushed dried red peppers.
Cover and steam till broccoli is tender crisp, but still bright green.
When broccoli is cooked, return seitan to pan, add same amounts of tamari, teriyaki, and orange juice. Stir till seitan is heated through.
Serve on Basmati Rice.
