1 pound chicken-style seitan, chopped
2 cups seedless red grapes
1 small bunch scallions, chopped
1 raw carrot, shredded
1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves, minced
1 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1 12 oz. package soft silken tofu
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon cumin
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon maple syrup
salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet, saute the seitan in some olive oil until lightly browned, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Meanwhile, make the dressing: combine the silken tofu, olive oil, vinegar, garlic, cumin, lime juice, maple syrup, salt and pepper in a food processor, and process until smooth.
In a large bowl, combine the seitan, grapes, scallions, carrot, mint, and sunflower seeds. Add the dressing and toss to combine.
Best served as a sandwich filling, in pita pockets or on toasted sourdough bread. Garnish the sandwiches with sprouts, if desired.
