Alright, Nooch. You win this time.

Baked Nooch Encrusted Vegetarian Mock Duck (canned Seitan)


I’m Asian. This means I am often accompanying my mother on some random errand to the “Asian” store. On one such occasion, after I had told my mother of my conversion to non-animal-product-eater, I stumbled upon a row of interesting cans. They were labeled, “Vegetarian Mock Duck.” When I read the ingredients, one of the listed ingredients was Wheat Gluten. I knew I had to have it. I would now finally experience SEITAN.

Enter a couple of weeks later. I had no idea what to do with these things. Every seitan recipe I had found on the internet involved actually making your own seitan. I was very confused. Luckily, I was cruising Vegan Cooking on LJ and I noticed someone had asked a similar question. What DO I do with this can of mock duck?

Apparently the correct answer is Thai Coconut Curry. Don’t you dare say anything otherwise.


HINT: I used that canned Mock Duck and not Tofu. But it’s an excellent recipe as-is, too!
