Jerk Seitan with Coconut Rice
An easy vegan dinner recipe featuring strips of seitan in a jerk sauce with rich, creamy coconut rice.
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 cup white rice
- 3/4 cup water
- 13 oz can coconut milk
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (divided)
- 2 tablespoons jerk seasoning
- 16 oz seitan
To make the rice, mix the rice, coconut milk, and water in a rice cooker and cook until done. Alternatively, cook the mixture on the stove following the timing on the rice package.
While the rice is cooking, heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add two tablespoons vegetable oil and then the jerk seasoning.
Cook for about 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until the jerk seasoning is fragrant. Then remove the skillet from the heat and pour the sauce into a bowl.
Place the skillet back on the heat. Add the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil. Then add the seitan and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes until heated through.
Remove from the heat and pour the jerk sauce over the seitan. Mix through until the seitan is coated by the sauce. Serve with the coconut rice.
