This easy to whip together kale and seitan vegan stir fry is great for any time of day and can be altered to include leftovers in your fridge. 

“What the heck is seitan?” you ask. It’s made from wheat and is high in protein and is often called “wheat meat” because its texture is very meat-like. 

One day, when craving something other than steel cut oats for breakfast, I opened the fridge and saw some rice and kale. That got me craving stir fry, so I added in some Italian Seitan by Upton’s Naturals and other veggies and voila! A healthy breakfast to start my day!
