our vegan dinners
BBQ seitan w/ homemade bbq sauce from the Vegan World Fusion Cuisine cookbook. I was really trying to come up w/ another way for us to eat seitan w/ out frying it. This worked out really well. First I marinated the seitan in the bbq sauce for about an hour and baked it @375 for about 30-40 minutes. Corn bread from the Cookin Southern Vegetarian style cookbook. Along side are smashed sweet potato's and green beans. Rice noodles w/ eggs broccoli and dark sweet soy sauce from the cookbook Real Vegetarian Thai. Instead of eggs I used some of Bryanna's Curried "chicken" from her cook book Authentic Chinese cuisine that I had in the freezer. I also used the "chicken" to fill the won ton wrappers (baked, not fried).
I found this Celebration loaf in the store and knew the kids and I would be home late and wanted to try some new fast food. The label reads "premium vegan grain meat stuffed w/ butternut squash, apples and mushroom" I couldn't get a picture of the label but, you can check it out here at their web site. What intrigued me most was that it is not a soy based fast food, rather wheat gluten. And the verdict? Well, when I got home and looked at the label a little closer it is rather high in fat. The kids had mixed feelings about it, the first few bites they really liked, but in the end they didn't eat it all. I thought it was okay, and would make a really good sandwich. But, like most pre-made packaged foods it rather spendy(well, over $6.00).
