Vegan Mongolian Beef

There are only a few types of 'fake' meat I've really enjoyed since going vegan, and I've actually become quite fond of veggie balls, patties and burgers made with beans, spices and veggies rather than faux meat. Sometimes, however, to truly recreated the texture and essence of a dish, you need a substitute that's been custom built. Suzy Spoon's Shredded Seitan is PERFECT for replicating chicken, beef or any really meaty dish, and I was so excited to be able to design my own interpretation of Mongolian Beef using this new product. If you're craving something meaty this is exactly the recipe for you. Visit their website here for their full range of vegan products!
