  • 1 medium carrot

  • 100 ml plain soy cream [UK ½ cup ]

Recipe translated from French by Elisabeth Lyman


  • Cut the seitan into bite-size strips, slice the mushrooms, dice the onion and chop the carrot into rounds. Heat the olive oil in a cast-iron stockpot (a sauté pan with high sides or a large saucepan will also do) over medium heat and sauté these ingredients, stirring often.
  • Once the onions begin to brown, add the water, white wine, soy cream, bouillon, soy sauce, and spice. Cook for about 15 minutes over medium-low heat (just below simmering), stirring occasionally.
  • Taste and add salt and pepper if desired. Remove from heat and incorporate the cashew butter to make the sauce creamier. Serve with rice or quinoa.
