...as in Beer Battered anything! Sunday night I made Beer Battered Seitan Strips based on a recipe posted by Jess at Get Sconed. Oh these were delicious. Not so healthy but that's ok you can't eat healthy all the time. The next time I make these I will not make a potato side dish. Although delicious it was a bit heavy and carby. As a dipping sauce I made a Pesto Aioli using some fresh pesto I made with some wilting basil mixed with vegan mayo. Did we enjoy this meal hot off the stove? No. Its hard to eat a hot meal once you have a baby. She seems to want attention as soon as dinner is ready.
The other evening I was feeling nostalgic and remembering my early vegetarian days as a teen when I first discovered chili. My chili back then wasn't as good as it is now simply because back then I was afraid to try cumin. I was stupid but slowly started using it and now all these years later am a cumin addict. I also thought I didn't like beans but I couldn't eat broccoli for every meal (which I did for a few days in the very beginning, oh the horrendus gas pains I had in my chest) so slowly thru the miracle of chili I learned to love both. Now I get gas pains in my chest from broccoli and beans. This chili contains 3 ingredients I usually don't use in chili: zucchini, corn and Field Roast Chipotle Mexican "Sausage". I also made some yellow rice because I was feeling festive.
