Harissa Seitan and Green Beans Recipe
1 tablespoon (15 ml) high heat neutral-flavoured oil
8 ounces (227 g) Seitan or Tempeh (store bought), cut into ½-inch (1.3 cm) strips
2 handfuls green beans, trimmed, cut into bite-size pieces
½ of a red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 leek, white part only, cut in half, sliced into half-rounds
⅓ cup (80 ml) dry red wine, or vegetable broth
1½ tablespoons (24 g) harissa paste, or to taste
3 tablespoons (48 g) tomato paste
1 cup (235 ml) vegetable broth
2 cloves garlic, minced
Juice from ½ lemon
Salt and pepper
1Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the seitan for 4 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned. Add the green beans and cook for 3 minutes until bright green.
2Add the bell pepper and leek, and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, until tender but not soft. Add the ⅓ cup (75 ml) wine or broth to the skillet, scraping any bits from the bottom. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
3Add the harissa paste, tomato paste, broth, garlic, and lemon juice. Stir to coat the seitan and vegetables. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
