Seitan and mushroom in creamy teriyaki sauce

Happy Good Friday!!!
I found a blog where someone made creamy teriyaki sauce and thought it looked so good but before I could get the recipe I had lost the blog. Oh well! So instead I had to come up with my own version of it and it was super easy. Because of being diluted in cream, the flavor of the teriyaki is mild and very nice and the dish kind of changed from a Japanese dish to a more all-round dish. Either way, it was a hit with my family who never would have guessed it was teriyaki in it.
I will actually serve this dish for Easter dinner along with roasted potatoes and rot vegetables and a mixed salad. For dessert we’ll have carrot cup cakes with an
orange butter cream frosting. What are you eating on East
er?

Baked seitan and mushrooms with creamy teriyaki sauce
1 cup seitan
1 cup portabella mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
1 tbs olive oil
1 cup mimic cream or any other substitute
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
Fresh black pepper to taste
Salt to taste
Preheat oven to F425
Heat oil in a frying pan and fry mushrooms and seitan until browned. Place in a baking dish. Mix cream, teriyaki, salt and pepper well. Pour over seitan and mushrooms. Bake for about 20 minutes.

About Green Mom

Fredrica Syren, the author and founder of Green-Mom.com, was born in Sweden. Her mother was a classically trained chef who introduced her to many eclectic flavors and skills at a young age. Her mom’s passion for the outdoors and gardening planted the seed for her own love of nature and healthy eating. She received a degree in journalism and has worked as a print, Internet and broadcasting journalist for many years with big businesses within Europe and the United States. After her mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer and she with pre-cancer, Fredrica changed her career to become a full time yoga teacher and activist. A longtime world traveler, foodie and career woman, she was exposed to many facets of life, but nothing inspired her more than becoming a mom. After her first-born, Fredrica began a food blog focusing on local, seasonal, organic & vegetarian dishes. Years of food blogging developed into the cookbook Yummy in My Tummy, Healthy Cooking for the Whole Family. Upon the arrival of her second child, Fredrica founded Green-Mom.com. Her vision was to establish a site providing insight about gardening, home and personal care, baby & child, and of course food & nutrition. Green-Mom.com hosts many talented writers shedding light on ways to incorporate eco-friendly and nutritious practices for busy families. She is an advocate for organic, local and sustainable businesses. Fredrica hopes to inspire social change through her lifestyle, passion and business. Fredrica lives with her husband James Harker-Syren and their three children in San Diego, CA.
