Seitan Wrap w. Raw Spinach, Avocado and Aioli served w. Garlic-Rosemary Fries
Seriously, garlic is oozing out of my pores. I had some seitan in the fridge that
reminded me of the kind my last job had. Which in turn reminded me of my favorite after work snack I would make for myself while I was finishing up my shift. This is my at home version of that wrap. Crispy seitan sauteed in a bit of olive oil with a ton of garlic which I put in a wrap w. raw spinach and avocado. The aioli was some mayo w. garlic and onion powder, paprika, cayenne and basil. I didn't have much mayo left, only about 3 tablespoons in total, so it was a very thin layer on the 2 wraps but the perfect amount because the spices were so heavily used and strong in flavor. I was very pleased as was Peter. It filled the craving.
To add on to the garlic overload of tonights dinner I decided to throw a ton of garlic onto the fries I had in the oven along with some fresh rosemary I got from my mom. There is no reason to eat plain o' fries when you can dress them up. Then again a plain fry dipped into an amazing mayo is heavenly.
Whoa! That's a huge clove! No camera trickery there my friends! That one clove was used for the seitan and the fries. I ran into the supermarket the other day for garlic and they had nothing. I searched and searched. Nothing. Then I found some elephant garlic hidden under some packs of basil. I couldn't believe how huge these cloves were. Half of this beast would have been more than enough for the whole meal and I love lots of garlic. It was funny having to slice it and dice it like an onion. I'm a fan.
