Lots O' Good Stuff...

Buffalo Seitan w. Asparagus and Tots

One of my most favorite things to eat during my chicken days were Boneless Buffalo Wings. I'm so happy that I can eat this veg version made with Seitan Cutlets from Veganomicon. It was my first time making the cutlets. They were really good and really easy to make in my opinion. I usually use the seitan recipe from the Real Food Daily cookbook. I liked this dish better with the V'con seitan. It was chewier and dare I say very chicken like texture wise. I randomly sliced the seitan and one or two of the pieces came out looking like drumsticks. Gross.

Black Bean Burgers w. Guac and Sauteed Broccoli

Another V'con creation. I doubled this recipe to freeze some without even trying them first. I new they would be great and I was right. Now I have 6 in the freezer for some wonderful day in the future where I don't want to cook.

The Uptown

Some like to call it the Arnold Palmer, or so I recently learned, I like to call it the Uptown. That's 1/2 agave sweetened homemade lemonade w. 1/2 homemade unsweetend Iced Tea. I also like to call it heaven in my mouth.

I found the Vcon seitan recipe really chickeny, too. Pleasantly so! At least, it didn't come out *looking* like chicken, just kind of (sort of) tasting and feeling like it. I love the sandwich idea! And the black bean burgers are the IDEAL thing to have in the freezer. They reheat beautifully and there's nothing like an instant burger after a long day. :D

This looks amazing! I am not a big 'burger' kind of girl - but you have inspired me to go a little off the usual trail tonight. Thanks.

Do you mind if I add your blog?

I'm LOVING all the green that's present in your dishes - getting an early start on St. Patrick's Day :0)

Once again (as with last season), I'm not that impressed with the contestants on this season's ANTM :0(
