Cook 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently, scraping up any browned bits of seitan. Add 1 cup of water, the black beans, kidney beans, and pinto beans, tamari, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender.
