The final day of summer break. Are the kids nervous? Nope. One is off to a LAN party and the other is just hanging out. I had plans to be home this tomorrow but that got called off due to work.
I have two recipes to share – both vegan
Homemade seitan (say-tan) – this is wheat meat and we have been including it in several ways; burritos, sandwiches, stir fry, and stroganoff.
Seitan is easy to make and there are several ways to cook it after the ingredients are mixed. Boil, baked and pressure cooked to name a few. I have boiled and baked and thanks to my oven putzing out on me this afternoon, I will be trying the pressure cooking method. I just have to run out and get some cheese cloth.
For a good recipe on seitan, please vist Neverhomemaker and their Make your own Seitan post. Ive tried a few different versions of making seitan and so far this is my favorite. I love to pick a variety of spices and just go crazy. The result was wonderful!
So tasty on its own, in a sandwich and fabulous in stroganoff!
You knew this was coming. Main reason I made the seitan the way I did was to try it out and get some stroganoff. Stroganoff was a fave of the family and since going vegan its been hard to find a happy medium that would allow us to enjoy this dish without meat and dairy but still have it be tasty and not over mushroomed.
Yes, very beige but a big green salad was had before the main course and D hates peas!
There was just enough left for someone to have it as part of lunch the next day (nope – not me unfortunately)
And just in time for the new school year – my oven went kaput! So D and I went shopping online and off. Nice the deals were still to be had and a new one will be delivered Friday. Thankfully we still have use of the range and not much of what we eat requires the oven these days.
