Red-Skinned Potatoes, Kale Mash w. Seitan Topped w. Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy
Why on earth have I never made the Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy from VwaV??? Seriously? It was delicious!! I'd make it for dinner guest even! I have written it on many "this week I will make" lists but still have never made it up until tonight. I have no idea what even made me make it tonight. I just went into the kitchen and started making it not even sure if I had all the ingredients that I needed. I didn't have the lemon but it was still damn tasty without it but I can see where it would work in brightening all the flavors in the recipe. The gravy of course worked great with the mashed potatoes and the lightly fried seitan. I can't wait to use it for the holidays with some nice cranberry sauce on the side.
Another good thing about the gravy and the complete meal..Reno liked it! I've been struggling with her food wise all week. Last week she ate everything green and good for her. This week..nope. Nothing green..nothing very good for her except rice and beans. My maa gave me the idea for putting kale in mashed potatoes, lucky for me I had some kale and potatoes (and garlic). I mashed them up with some Earth Balance and Rice Milk and kept the potatoes and gravy separate on her plate until I knew she would eat it. Then I mixed it all up. I left out the seitan for her because I tried to give it to her earlier and she wasn't too into it. I was using store bought seitan as opposed to the homemade cutlets I usually make. I have to say the brand I usually love wasn't so good tonight so I don't blame her for not eating it. From now on it's only homemade seitan for us. Homemade as in I'm making a triple batch tomorrow and freezing some of it.
