Servings 4


  • 2 cups pre-made seitan strips
  • 1 Tbsp +1 tsp avocado oil (or other neutral vegetable oil)
  • 2 Tbsp red Thai curry paste (Thai Kitchen makes a great version)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 oz green beans, trimmed
  • 1 whole lime, juiced and ½ of it zested
  • Tbsp fish sauce (or vegan fish sauce)
  • 1 tsp honey (or agave syrup to make it vegan)
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp red Thai chili pepper flakes (optional)


  • Heat a skillet or wok on medium-high heat and add 1 tsp oil and the seitan (I omit the oil entirely since I use a non-stick wok). Brown the seitan, then remove it from the skillet and set aside.
  • Add the rest of the oil to the skillet, then add the garlic and red Thai curry paste. Stir until mixed and cook for about 3 minutes, or until the garlic is fragrant.
  • Add the lime juice and zest and stir well. Add the green beans and toss to cover in the red curry paste.
  • Pour in the water, honey, and fish sauce (or vegan fish sauce). Cook until the green beans are tender, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the seitan and toss to cover in the sauce. Cook until the seitan have warmed through, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving bowl or plate and serve immediately.
