High-Protein Vegan "Beef" and Broccoli over Quinoa

High-Protein Vegan "Beef" and Broccoli over Quinoa This recipe that Christine came up with includes all four of the high-protein vegetarian foods from this post. (My contribution was coming up with the moniker "wheef and broccoli," which I recommend you avoid calling it if you don't want to gross out your friends.)

  • 1 cup(s) dry quinoa, rinsed well
  • 1 cup(s) water
  • 1/2 pound(s) seitan
  • 2 clove(s) garlic
  • 1 head(s) Onion
  • 1/4 head(s) Brocolli
  • 4 teaspoon(s) canonla
  • Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon(s) cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon(s) agave
  • 1/2 tablespoon(s) crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoon(s) ginger fresh
  • 1 tablespoon(s) black bean paste
  • 1/4 cup(s) white wine
  • 1/2 cup(s) vegetable broth or 1/2 tblsp veggie concentrate
  • 2 tablespoon(s) orange juice


  1. Ingredients for the sauce:

  2. 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  3. 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  4. 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  5. 1 tablespoon black bean paste
  6. 1/4 cup white wine
  7. 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  8. 2 tablespoons orange juice
  9. 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  10. Bring the water to a boil, add quinoa and reduce heat to medium-low. Let simmer for 12-15 minutes until tender, let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with fork when ready to serve.

  11. Combine the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and mix well to dissolve corn starch. Set aside.

  12. Heat the two teaspoons canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the seitan, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes to brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  13. Heat the remaining oil in the same pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook for two minutes and add broccoli. Cover and let cook for 5-10 minutes, checking the broccoli until it is crisp-tender. When it is, add sauce and browned seitan and cook until the sauce thickens slightly.

  14. Serve with additional soy sauce and Sriracha sauce if desired.
