Are you going to make noodles with peanut sauce? Top choice! For many people, peanut sauce (or satay sauce) includes chicken. Chicken satay is a classic, but how do you do that if you're vegan? In this vegan noodle recipe we use seitan. It contains a lot of protein and tastes a bit like chicken. An easy recipe with many different flavors! Pro tip for that good peanut sauce: Use real peanut butter as a base. You can choose your own vegetables in this dish. We used zucchini and red onion, but stir-fried carrot, broccoli, leek, pak choi, haricots verts or spring onions also work well. your choice!

This is how you make it
Boil a pan with plenty of water. Cook the noodles for 3-4 minutes. Rinse with cold water.
Drain the seitan. Slice the large pieces. Grill the seitan over high heat for about 3 minutes. Turn the heat down. Deglaze with the mirin.
Mix the ingredients for the sauce, except for the sesame seeds. Add to the seitan and stir until smooth, about 2 minutes.
Stir-fry the vegetables of your choice on hot fire for 2-5 minutes. We did that in coconut oil and added a dash of ginger syrup at the last minute.
Cut the spicy red peppers into pieces.
Serve the plates and sprinkle the seitan with sesame seeds and peppers.
