MAKE IT

Step 1
Heat coconut milk in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in red curry paste, brown sugar, soy sauce, peanut butter, lime juice, and garlic and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and allow sauce to simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Once sauce is thick, stir in 1/2 cup crushed peanuts and remove from heat.
Step 2
While sauce is simmering prepare the rest of the ingredients. Heat a lightly-oiled griddle over medium-high heat and place the seitan strips on griddle. Sauté for about 4 minutes. Flip and sauté the other side until seitan is warmed all the way through. Set aside.
Step 3
Heat up a small saucepan and add broccoli florets along with 1-2 tablespoons water. Cover and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
Step 4
To assemble, divide the rice evenly among bowls. Add broccoli, cabbage, spinach, and seitan to each bowl. Top with Red Curry Peanut Sauce and green onions, cilantro and/or 1/4 cup peanuts, if desired. Serve immediately.
