"chicken" Kung Pao

Okay, so the last time I made this I made it with floured and fried tofu and it came out AWESOME! I think seitan would probably come a bit closer to the way my mom made it though. This is one recipe that I absolutely cannot live without. This is what my husband asks for (every single time) when I ask if he wants something special for dinner. Lemme know if you try and enjoy!!

3/4lb of tofu/seitan or tempeh. You could also use tofurky bits, I'm sure.
2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced (I always add loads more because we're a garlic family!)
1sm onion, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2c dry roasted cashews or peanuts

Combine the following with 1/4c water for sauce:
1/4c (4TB)soy sauce or Braggs
2TB lemon juice
2TB sugar
2tsp cornstarch or arrowroot
1/2-1tsp crushed red pepper (like the kind you get at pizza places.) Add more or less to taste

1)Stir fry "meat" and garlic in oil for about 3 minutes until "meat" is golden
2)Add bell peppers and onion. Stir fry a bit
3)Add sauce and cook until sauce thickens.
4)Serve over brown rice!

Serves 4 (or if you're like us, 2 with a tiny bit of leftovers!)
