VeganMoFo: Dinner



Seitan w. Cashews + Veg w. Tamari Glaze over Brown Rice




I went old school tonight and made a stir fry that I haven't made in a long time. Seitan, cashews, mixed veg, lots of garlic, ginger powder and red pepper flakes cooked until the veg are crispy and then glazed with a mixture of tamari and arrowroot powder. Making both seitan recipes from the new issue of Don't Eat Off The Sidewalk has given me a lot of seitan to use and this was a great way to eat the chicken style one. I think I said this in another post...buy the zine and make those seitan recipes.

I had this whole other topic I was going to post about tonight but i've gotten a headache so I will share a very short story on the first time I tried seitan.

I was shopping at Whole Foods many many years ago when it was a Fresh Fields and saw a box of "wheat meat" in the freezer case. It said it was great to use as a sub for chicken in chicken salad recipes. As a new vegetarian I was interested. So I purchased it and made "chicken" salad. I didn't eat wheat meat for along time after that and never saw that product in the freezer case ever again. It was so gross. What got me to try it again I can't remember but I'm glad I did because the wheat meat of today is nothing like the wheat meat I ate 11 years ago.

the only way I eat seitan is in stir-fry dishes - and mine it similar to yours (except I use barley instead of brown rice)!! My first time trying seitan was just a month ago - can you believe it? I actually liked it the first time; and I also tried it AFTER my omnivore parents tried it (since they liked it, I convinced myself to try it, haha). glad to hear that you gave seitan another chance, and that it's better than it was years ago! :0)

That looks absolutely fantastic. I have such a weakness for nuts in food.
