vegan lunch box -seitan pot roast..ohh baby!!

Excuse my very long absence. Life is good it has just been busy and it seems I have just been cooking ol'stadbys that I have already blogged about. Nothing really seemed that blog worthy.

Until last night.
If you have the Vegan Lunch Box Cookbook YOU MUST TRY THIS! pg 119. The wheat gluten pot roast and gravy. Man oh Man! The recipe says it serves 4 w/ leftovers for lunch. But, really it was all we could do to stop stuffing our selves and eating the whole darn roast in one night. My family really loved it. If I knew how good it was going to be I definitely would have made two roast. The only minor substitutions I made was instead of red wine I used 1/4 cup red wine vinegar w/a 1/4 cup water and instead of fresh thyme I used a 1/2 tsp dried. On the side is of course mashed potatoes (1/2 white the other 1/2 sweet I use the pressure cooker w/ about a cup of veggie broth salt and pepper)

sorry about the bad photo
Okay so we did manage to save enough for three sandwiches (lucky kids and honey!)... BEHOLD the beauty! That seitan looks kinda freakishly like the real deal doesn't it? My hubby believes that this would pass with any skeptical omni test. He also wants to try doing this recipe only try to shape the seitan more like a tube to be cut up into burgers and then grilled... mmmm that boy is always thinking.
Well, I started a post about our summer vacation many moons ago but, never got around to posting it. Here is little Emma enjoying her very first doughnut from Ronald's Doughnuts in Las Vegas.
It was cute - all though she has never seen the Simson she started chanting just like Homer Simson ...mmmmmm doughnuts

Emma has dairy allergy's and has never had a doughnut! The poor kid huh? Well, a couple of years ago her and I were in Seattle and I had tried to make it to the vegan doughnut shop there. But, I got lost and frustrated because of my poor timing we had hit five o clock traffic so we never made it, she still remembers to this day.

I think I made up for it though.

So here she is standing in front of the surgery goodness! All but three trays on the bottom are vegan. The lady behind the counter was SOOO NICE!!
So if you are ever in the Las Vegas area I recommend hitting up Ronalds - as a bonus it's not to far from the Trader Joes.

Emma is SO stinkin' cute! I can't wait to go to Vegas for my birthday (in a few months) and sample some of those donuts :0 Thanks for the heads up!

At 9:10 PM, Blogger LizzyQ ~ Vegan Mother said...

Oh yeah, and the donuts.. If I ever find myself in vegas, I am so going there!

I know Sage's very well, the owner and I are on a first name basis.. he has another cool little place too, that is more diner style food. SLC is very veg friendly- I love it for that reason!

At 7:45 AM, Blogger VeggieGirl said...

I LOVE the Vegan Lunch Box cookbook - I definitely have to try that seitan pot roast!!

What delicious-looking donuts!! Glad to see that Emma enjoyed hers :0)

Thanks for the comments! Your "pot roast" looks yummy. I haven't picked up the book because I don't have kids but maybe I'll check it out anyway.

Keep trying with tempeh on your family! I actually didn't like it at first when I tried it several years ago but it really grew on me and now I love it. Maybe they'll like the tempeh "wingz"? I didn't bake mine but breaded and then deep fried and then smothered in sauce.

At 6:03 PM, Blogger Vegan_Noodle said...

I'll have to give that seitan roast a try from VLB! How sweet that you saved the leftovers for your kids and honey. Any for you?

I had no idea there were vegan donuts in vegas! How cool. Lucky little Emma. :-)

At 7:08 PM, Blogger aTxVegn said...

I don't have the cookbook either, and now I want it too! Your roast looks fantastic!! Emma is such a cutie. I'm glad she got to finally have a donut!

At 8:57 PM, Blogger ms. veganorama said...

Oh, don't worry about it. Actually the author has made her "wingz" recipe publicly available here (scroll down):

I'm searching the web looking for a stuffed onion recipe with spelt and somehow saw a link to your ones from Thanksgiving which I will swap out the mushrooms (allergic) with the spelt. I have a blog going called eats nothing with eyeballs but I am facing a quandry of where to go with it as my rubber stamping one is taking all my time. maybe I will get more ideas over the winter. hey, add an email feed. its easy and I like good mail.

At 3:35 AM, Blogger Vegan Stiletto said...

Hi Julee and thanks for the welcome!
Oh wow, I'm drooling just looking at all those doughnuts! Emma must have been SO excited. She's adorable.

At 4:46 AM, Blogger bazu said...

I wanted to thank you SO much for your generosity in donating to the walk for farm animals! I tried emailing you last night, but the email address provided didn't work. Email me at: bazooq (at) gmail to give me your address.

P.S. That picture of Emma at the donut shop is priceless- she is so adorable and photogenic! And, I'm glad that she got to try a donut. One of life's naughty pleasures.

At 4:50 AM, Blogger Rural Vegan said...

I don't have the book either, but that seitan looks amazing! Ronald's is fabulous; worth the trip to Las Vegas alone!

At 3:50 PM, Blogger michelle said...

That seitan roast looks so good! Now if it'll only get cold here.

How awesome about Ronald's. I haven't heard of them before but now I'm definitely going to try them the next time we're in Vegas. Emma looks like she's sitting on cloud 9.

At 12:50 PM, Blogger Jody from VegChic said...

I've got that cookbook and must add it to my list of recipes "To Try". I picked up some fingerling potatoes at the farmer's market and that sounds like a good match.

Emma looks so happy with the donuts...I guess I would be too.

At 2:00 PM, Blogger Pink Theory said...

wow! it looks like early Thanksgiving. And the vegan donuts have me drooling! I'm a sucker for sweet baked (or fried) goods.

At 5:56 PM, Blogger dreamy said...

Awesome burger and doughnut - both of which I haven't eaten for a long long long time :d

At 6:31 AM, Blogger laura jesser said...

It's good to see you here! Little Emma looks so cute with that scrumptious treat.

Sorry I haven't been around Facebook lately... I have to pick my online activities wisely, you know, or I'd spend my life at the computer!!

At 8:01 AM, Blogger Kris said...

That seitan looks great! And the donut- heaven!

At 11:58 AM, Blogger Kumudha said...

Vegan donuts and Emma are so adorable!

At 7:17 PM, Blogger b36Kitchen said...

So glad to see you posting! I never had pot roast before and never thought I'd want to try it but you make me want to try seitan pot roast!
