  • 1-2 teaspoons chili sauce (or to taste)
  • 2/3 cup vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar


Chick and Vegetables:

  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 16 ounces (2 packages) Upton’s Chick Seitan
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3-4 scallions, sliced

Stir together the cornstarch, soy sauce, and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the Chick Seitan and toss to coat. Add the vegetable oil to a skillet and heat over medium-high.
