I am going to make these, maybe even today. I have a half of a bag of wheat gluten that could stand to be used up. My seitan cooking skills are shaky to say the least, but this seems like a pretty fool proof recipe. I love the idea of adding blended cashews to seitan mix to make it juicy. A lot of recipes call for oil. I enjoy this YouTube channel. She has some amazing recipes, and her videos are always positive. She also doesn't do videos bashing other vegans food choices, or weight.
Yesterday I tinkered around in the kitchen and made this really tasty green chili sauce, and I also made a cashew cilantro cream. I ended up making like a Mexican lasagna using tortillas instead of noodles. I used white beans, and some leftover cooked brown rice lingering in the fridge. It was so delicious!
- 1 lb. Tomatillos
- 1/2 medium onion sliced
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 small Serrano pepper (optional, leave out if you're not into too much heat.)
- 1 4oz. can of fire roasted diced green chilis
- S & P to taste
- 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
- 1 veggie stock cube
- 2 C. water
I like this dish because it's hearty and comforting, but it's also actually good for you. And it's yet another dish that you can make using odds and ends.
I wanted to sign of with a tweet I saw from Russell Simmons, who by the way is a longtime vegan, and recently wrote a book called The Happy Vegan and I've seen clips online of him making the rounds promoting the book, and he is representing! Anyway, I loved this tweet/quote/twote?- "A smile, even when it feels forced at first, is what gives us strength to continue our process"
