Garlic Scape and Seitan Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce

I have to admit, this is my first time using garlic scapes. Until my sister brought them over and suggested we cook with them, I really didn’t even know what they were. But wow, are they good. They make a fun skewer for a seitan satay (and produce less waste than a wooden skewer!) plus the other half of the scape gets chopped up and added into your sauce. Yum!

To make skewers, cut woody ends off of 4 of the scapes. Cut the ends into sharp points and set aside.

Cut the woody pieces off of the scapes and chop them up. Cut your seitan into bite-sized chunks. Skewer the seitan with the garlic scapes (spacing the seitan pieces about 1 inch from one another). Put a little sesame oil in a pan and cook the satays about 3 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by mixing peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice, ginger, hot sauce, garlic scape chunks, and mint leaves. If your sauce is too thick, add water.

Once the satays are cooked, remove and serve with dipping sauce on the side. Yum! We served them with a side of kale salad (recipe will be posted soon).
