Seitan Worship

I had a the rest of the seitan sausage patties left, that I made for the Fegg McMuffins, to use up. So Monday I went for something similar to the spicy cutlet parmesan recipe on the Everyday Dish, but I left out the breadcrumbs and kind of made up the sauce as I went along. It was seriously tasty and so was the baked sweet potato I served it with!

Then yesterday I made Seitan au poivre. I may have stolen this idea from Hezbollah Tofu. In fact I think that is a certainty - except that again, I made the sauce up as I went along and I must admit - I over-salted it. Next time I will know to season at the end!!

Today I was trying to go healthier so I made baked tofu with steamed veggies and brown rice, which I dressed with a balsamic dressing to give it some flavour. It was a lovely dinner.

This pic is from the weekend, I had a lemongrass stalk to use up so I made a thai green curry. I left the seeds in the chilli cuz I thought it wouldn't be that hot. Oh I was wrong. It was freakin ace though.

And this is my excuse for baking - it was healthy!! Banaa bread: No oil, brown flour, lots of fruit, seeds and hardly any sugar. It wasn't quite cooked after the time I gave it so I meant to give it another 10 minutes but I forgot to set the timer. But astonishingly, it was perfect when I finally remembered to take it out. Really moist and delicious. I'm not 100% happy with it, hence no recipe here yet. But next time I'm gonna get it right!
Oh this is was a quickie soup that I knocked up Monday night to take to work for lunch on Tuesday. It took about 10 minutes and was so easy! It was just hot water, tomato puree, chickpeas, soy sauce, basmati rice and some fresh parsley. (oh and salt & pepper). boil it all together for 10 minutes, then lid on and leave it until you're ready to reheat and eat.
