Seitan stir fry

Before being vegan I used to make some of my stir fries with meat. Obviously, I won't ever think of that thing again. So I tried to make it with seitan. And guess what? It works really well.
And it's even quicker that before, because there isn't any meat to cook. And it's cruelty free too :)
Let's get to the recipe.

300 g (4 cups) chopped mushrooms
200 g (2 cups) chopped peppers
150 g onions (1 large onion)
200 g (3 cups) chinese cabbage, shredded
170 g (6 oz) seitan, cut into bite size pieces

The sauce:
60 ml sweet chili sauce
40 ml soy sauce
1/2 tsp chili flakes
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/5 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp corn starch
50 ml water

Mix all the ingredients for the sauce until well combined and you don't have any lumps.
You're gonna cook everything on high heat and need to stir frequently, so you have to have all the ingredients prepared when you start cooking.
In a pan or wok add some vegetable oil or water. Cook the onions for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add the peppers and cook for about 1 minute. Add the stems of the cabbage and the mushrooms and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Add the sauce and mix well. Cook for 2 more minutes and add the leafy part of the cabbage. Turn off the stove.

Enjoy with the grains of your choice or noodles!
