Vegan Adobo Recipe

Filipino food is known for its bold flavors--adobo is a signature dish with a sour, tangy taste and appetizing aroma.  Be advised, the smell of this dish is amazing.  You may be tempted to eat it before it's ready.  :)

2  8 oz. Packages of Cubed Seitan (or Firm Tofu)
6 Cloves Garlic
1 Tsp Ground Ginger
1 Tsp Paprika
5 Bay Leaves
1/2 Cup Tamari Soy Sauce
1 Cup White Vinegar
2 Cups Water
2 Leeks
1 Cup Carrots
Sea Salt and Black Pepper to Taste

Rinse your veggies before cooking.  Dice the leeks and set aside.  Cut the carrots into thin strips and set aside.  Chop the seitan into small chunks and set aside.  Heat oil on a pan over medium heat.  Once the oil is hot, press the garlic into the pan, stir, and cook for a couple minutes.  Add the leeks, stir, and cook for a couple minutes.  Add the carrots, stir, cook for a couple minutes.  Add sea salt.  Add seitan and stir.  Cook for a couple minutes.  Add water, vinegar, tamari, paprika, ginger, black pepper, and bay leaves.  Stir everything evenly.  Turn heat up to medium high, place lid on the pan, and bring liquid to a boil.  Cook for approximately 30 minutes, or until the liquid is all gone.  Remove the bay leaves, and serve with brown rice!  Enjoy!
