Seitan Satays with Ginger-Peanut Sauce

Yields 4 servings
Author Robin Robertson


  • 1 pound seitan, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 teaspoons natural sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • Orange slices


  1. Thread the seitan slices onto bamboo or metal skewers, pushing down firmly. Blend the water, 3 tablespoons of the soy sauce, 2 teaspoons of the sugar, and the garlic in a shallow baking dish. Add the skewered seitan and marinate for an hour, turning once.
  2. While the seitan is marinating, combine the broth, peanut butter, ginger, lime juice, remaining 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, remaining 1 teaspoon of sugar, and the cayenne in a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and simmer until thick enough to coat a spoon, stirring constantly, about 10 minutes.
  3. Preheat the broiler or grill. Cook the satays until hot and browned, about 3 minutes per side. Arrange the satays on a platter and garnish with orange slices. Pour the sauce into individual dipping bowls to serve.
