Here is my first Seitan Roast ready to be put in the crock pot. I got the recipe from Ellen's Kitchen. We think it needs quite a bit more seasoning to eat on its own, but the texture is great. But look below for our dinners so far. Oh, by the way this is a very easy recipe and it cooks in the crockpot.
Ready to begin is cooking in the crockpot. Boy that garlic looks like little biddy eyes looking at you.
Here is my seitan "roast" fresh out of the crock pot. That is garlic on top, not creepy eyes looking at you. :o)
Our "roast" sliced and ready for the dinner table. It looks so pretty. Scary, I told my husband, it looks so real.
I was in the middle of cooking dinner when we got a long distance call from my father-in-law. He is a great man. Anyway I spent so much time talking to him before I passed the phone to DH, that the veggies got a little, lets say "WELL DONE". Thank goodness they were forgiving when I added some tamari, garlic, and some toasted almonds. Also pictured is our sliced seitan "roast" with gravy, baked Yukon Gold potato, cherry tomatoes, and the disaster "hemp biscuits". I got that recipe from Dairyfree.com, but the taste of these is very bland. They are more like a cracker than a biscuit.
This roast is so versatile. Here we cut it up in little pieces and cooked it with some rice and vegan gravy. My favorite was the sauteed zucchini, fresh spinach, and green onions. Look how yummy green they are. The organic grape tomatoes we get are sweet as sugar. :o)
