You can easily use other proteins and veggies based on what you have in your fridge. Here are some substitutes to try:

  • Tofu, paneer, tempeh or 2 scrambled eggs in lieu of the seitan
  • Peanuts for the cashews
  • Zucchini, squash, red or green bellpeppers, snow peas, red onions, asparagus and mushrooms. The possibilities are for real endless here.

For the noodles, I used whole wheat linguine but you can also opt for more authentic Chinese noodles, Hakka noodles or soba noodles.

Serve hot and be sure to scrape up the crispy bits from the bottom of the pan.
