Back in my meat-eating days, my mother would often cook duck on Sundays.

So naturally, after becoming a vegan, I had to find a way to recreate the famous duck dish, and this recipe is the end result of my little “experiment”. I hope you enjoy it.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

1. Cut the seitan into thin slices and brown in a pan with some olive oil.

2. Throw in the cabbage and season with salt and pepper. Add the cumin seeds, orange juice, marmalade and capers. Stir and cover.

3. Add the broth and leave to simmer for approx. 10 mins or until the cabbage has absorbed most of the liquid.

4. Add the orange slices and cook for a further 2-3 mins.

5. Serve with basmati rice.
