Fried Seitan?

I don’t know if it’s a recommended way of cooking seitan, but tonight, I coated it with cornstarch and fried it.  Served it with General Tao’s Sauce and rice.  Wow.  I put extra red pepper flakes into the sauce tonight, since it was only me eating; it was a bit potent, but GOOD.  I also probably over cooked the seitan, as it didn’t  brown well, so I didn’t know if it was done, especially since it was still a bit frozen in the middle.  It was still delicious.  This was seitan from my first batch, that I found in our freezer today.  I still haven’t made my second batch; maybe tomorrow.  Today was a very lazy day (meaning I only did two loads of laundry and three loads of dishes.)

My nutrition today was also less than stellar; didn’t eat breakfast; had Pad Thai soup (with WAY too much salt!) and english muffins with tofutti cream cheese for lunch.  Dinner, at least, was decent.  I need to shop; I want to make chili but am out of TVP, I’m out of spinach and kale for green drink; out of yogurt for smoothies, even out of cereal for morning.  But I have my chocolate mousse, so life is good.
