Air-Fried Sticky Rice Featuring Seitan

Air-Fried Sticky Rice Featuring Seitan Recipe

By Veegs

🔪Prep Time: 30 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 30 minutes


2 cups jasmine rice

½ cup soy sauce or gluten-free tamari

4 tablespoons maple syrup

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 teaspoons Chinese five spice

½ teaspoon ground ginger

4 tablespoons white wine or rice vinegar

1 pound cremini mushrooms, wiped clean, or any large mushrooms cut in half

1 cup Pressure Cooker Thai Nuggets

½ cup frozen peas


1Add the rice to a large saucepan with 2 cups water. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to medium and cook for about 20 minutes or until the water is absorbed.

2If your air fryer doesn’t have a built-in insert, then insert one now.

3Mix the soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic, Chinese five spice, ginger, and white wine together in a small bowl and set aside.

4Place the mushrooms in the air fryer. If you can set your temperature, set it to 350°F. Otherwise, just turn it on—my air fryer temperature is built in and always cooks at 338°F. Cook for 10 minutes. Open the air fryer and add the seitan nuggets. If you don’t have a built-in self-stirrer in your air fryer, then stir. Pour the liquid mixture and peas over the top. Stir and cook 5 minutes.

5Add rice and stir well. Heat for 2 minutes. Serve.

6Note: If you don’t have an air fryer, you can make this dish in a skillet. Precook the jasmine rice and set aside. Mix together the next six ingredients and set aside. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Add mushrooms and cook 10 minutes over medium-high heat. Pour the liquid mixture over the mushrooms. Add peas and seitan nuggets and cook for 5 more minutes. Add the cooked rice, stir well, and heat through.
