Peel the carrot and cut into slices. Peel the onion and garlic and cut into quarters. Cut the peppers into small pieces. Drain very well the water from the mushrooms. In a pan put a little olive oil and add the seitan, mushrooms and vegetables. Bake in the oven with grill function on. Let grill for 30 minutes and stirring occasionally.

Highly proteic recipe, but cholesterol-free. A very colourful dish with traditional Portuguese flavours.
