General Tao's Seitan

This is one of my all time best creations.. I never really imagined I could produce restaurant quality meals but, this is.. I made the seitan basically following vegan w/ a vegance recipe but, added some "chicken" spices 1tsp rosemary, thyme and sage, 1/4 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp garlic powder. Then prepared the General Tao's Tofu.. I added some pineapple which the kids love, and red pepper..I highly recommend doubling the sauce! The first time I made this I added the fried seitan to the sauce and by the time it hit the table the seitan had gone soggy.. soo this time I added the sauce on the plate over a bed of brown rice.. The kids went crazy.. they love the little nuggets.. Eli though, is still adverse to broccoli any way but plain.. I keep hoping this will change..
