salt and pepper to taste
Stir-fry garlic in 1/2 tsp. oil
Add broth/water and then corn starch slurry
Stir well, then add vegetables in this order: carrots, cauliflower, celery, cabbage, mushrooms
Cover and cook for about three minutes (vegetables should still have a bit of crunch to them)
Add seitan and salt and pepper to taste
Red pepper flakes and chopped green onion to taste would also work well.
