This healthful salad contains seitan, a wheat gluten that is a great source of protein.
"Seitan is wheat gluten that is cooked with shoyu, kombu and water. I serve it here with noodles. It's an easy-to-eat meat substitute. Tempeh can also be used in this recipe".

MACROBIOTICS-the healthy, nature-friendly way of life based on a diet of whole grains, vegetables, and beans-is now a global phenomenon. In recent years a number of Hollywood stars have taken up the macrobiotic diet because of its many benefits, which include higher energy levels, beautiful skin, a tranquil mind, and a greater sense of connection with the universe. In Mayumi's Kitchen, Mayumi Nishimura, the woman who worked for seven years as Madonna's private macrobiotic chef, shares with the world her dazzling recipes.
Mayumi's unique style of cooking is healthful, intuitive, and easy to stick with. She draws her inspiration not only from Japanese food, which she grew up with, but also from Chinese, French, Italian, and any number of other world cuisines, as well as from macrobiotic traditions. She believes that enjoyment, above all, is the key to sustainable healthy eating, and that means adapting her cooking to cosmopolitan tastes.
