VeganMoFo: mmmmmmmmm...........



V-con Caesar Salad w. Chicken Seitan + Garlic Bread


mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I'm in love with the Caesar Dressing in V-con...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I'm also in love with the Chicken Seitan recipe (baked) from the new issue of Don't Eat Off The Sidewalk. In regards to the dressing..this is one of those recipes that you could feed a tofu-phobe and they would never no that there is tofu in the recipe. One thing I have to say about this recipe is about the almonds..if you don't have almonds and want to make this..make it. In my opinion it wouldn't really make a difference with or without. This recipe does makes a ton of dressing (see photo below). Luckily tomorrow I'm going to my sisters for dinner where there will be a lot of people so I'm just going to bring it over there for people to devour..and it will be devoured..without them knowing that it's made w. tofu. In regards to the Chicken Seitan..this is the first time I've baked seitan. I like it so much more then simmered seitan. The texture was nice and chewy. The taste was delicious. This will be one of those seitan recipes that I would make over and over again. In fact it wasn't the only seitan I made today. I made both of seitan recipes in the new issue. The other was Chipotle Seitan. I baked that also and it is just as good. I'll be using it in chili either tomorrow or thursday.



V-con Caesar Dressing



p.s. I didn't feel like roasting garlic to make the croutons used in the caesar salad recipe so I just made garlic bread. I will stink like garlic for days now but the vampire that use to haunt me as a child will keep his distance.

It has been ages since i"ve had a caesar salad....looks good!
And glad to see a review of the seitan from don't eat off the sidewalk. I've been thinking about making both of these. Baked seitan is just sooooo much easier.

vegan_noodle...make both of the seitan's at the same time it was really easy and saves you tons of time. I had the salad again for lunch and I used the chipotle seitan in some chili that we will eat later this week and I still have a ton of it left in my fridge.

What is V-con? Sounds like a cookbook? I'd love to get it so that I can make the caesar dressing. Thanks!
