Beef Stoup

Serves 6

1 batch of beef-like seitan using 2T Better Than Bouillon No Beef Base for the broth

4 – 5 c cooked brown rice

2 onions, diced

3 carrots, sliced into coins

1 green pepper, diced

4 cloves of garlic, chopped or minced

Broth or water with additional No Beef Base

Thyme, rosemary, oregano, pepper

Make the seitan and while it’s steaming, start the rice and chop the veggies.  You can also make the seitan and rice in advance so the meal comes together faster for a weeknight meal.  In a large pot, sauté the veggies using a little water as needed to prevent sticking.  Once the veggies have softened, add the broth and herbs.  Cover and cook over medium heat until the veggies have reached the desired texture.  Slice the beef-like seitan then cut into strips or bite-sized pieces.  Add the rice and seitan and heat through.  Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more broth if needed for soup.
