Beer Battered Seitan, Mixed Veg w. Garlic + Tots
This dinner has been approved by all 3 of us. When I ate chicken I loved Chili's Chicken Crispers. Oh how bad they are for you but how delicious they were. After you would eat them you'd declare to the entire table that you would never eat them again because of how horrible you felt afterwards. How quickly our stomach forgets..because you would be back a few months later ordering them again and again declaring that THIS was the last time. I'm glad to say that I obviously have had a "last time" with them even though my stomach says MORE, MORE, MORE!!!
When I'm getting those cravings I turn to this RECIPE from Jess of Get Sconed! Hers is a slightly adapted version of another recipe and mine is slightly adapted from her slightly adapted one. Mostly just extra amounts of some spices and such..it's nothing measured. Anyway..these are quick to whip together and are a cinch to fry. Served with a medley of mixed vegetables and some organic tater tots and you've got yorself a complete meal that won't kill you as quickly as those pesky chicken crispers would.
My one recommendation with the recipe is to 1/2 it. I used about 4 decent sized seitan cutlets cut into strips and I had a ton of batter left over. If I was making this for a party the full recipe would be perfect but for the 3 of us it's just too much.
Speaking of us..Reno ate the entire meal except for the carrots. She was shoving zucchini and string beans into her mouth like it was nothing along with the seitan and tots. The next day I chopped up the tots and leftover veg, again minus the carrots, for her lunch and heated them up. Gobble gobble gobble..she ate it all. My wonderful little eater!
Oh yeah..that's BBQ sauce from a jar that you see creeping under all the food.
