Seitan Satay with Peanut Sauce

Diet Type: Vegan

Cooking Time: 30 minutes - one hour


  1 package bamboo skewers
  1 ½ teaspoons fennel seed
  2 teaspoons ground Turmeric
  1 16 ounce jar seitan, drained
  ¾ cup unsweetened Coconut Milk
  1 tablespoon Tamari
  ½ cup peanut butter
  ¼ cup warm water
  1/3 cup rice vinegar
  1 clove garlic, minced
  ½ tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  1 teaspoon sugar
  1 teaspoon red chili flakes
  ¼ cup toasted Sesame Oil

Soak skewers in water for 10 minutes. Meanwhile dry roast fennel seeds in a skillet until light brown. Grind Turmeric and fennel together in a coffee grinder or blender. Slice seitan into ½” chunks and thread onto skewers. Place in a deep bowl. Combine Coconut Milk, soy sauce and ground spices. Pour over skewers in bowl, stirring to coat. Marinate 1 hour in the refrigerator. Meanwhile make peanut sauce by thinning peanut butter with warm water, using a wire whisk. Whisk in all other ingredients except Sesame Oil. Slowly blend in Sesame Oil by pouring a very tiny stream of oil as you continue to whisk peanut sauce. Preheat grill or broiler. Place seitan skewers under broiler or on grill and cook , turning every 3 minutes, until nicely browned. Serve with peanut sauce.
