“Chicken” Seitan

A lot of seitan recipes tend to be either too soft or too tough. When I started working on this recipe my mission was clear, to make the ultimate seitan “chicken”. The texture is perfection. It’s just the right amount of chewy without being tough. It’s tender without being too soft and so moist. And most importantly it’s bursting with chicken-like flavor. I have a “chicken” salad recipe coming up using this recipe so stay tuned. GO TO “CHICKEN” SEITAN RECIPE>

Amazing Gumbo

Gumbo is a savory Cajun or Creole stew served over rice. This recipe has very little added oil but big flavor. The fennel and pinch of nutmeg help give it a slight sausage flavor, which adds a depth. Not my best food photography I’ll admit. It’s hard to get inspired by a pile of vegetables on brown rice. But if only you could smell and taste this gumbo through the screen, so GOOD. I had left overs for lunch yesterday and poured some black beans on top as well. The flavors worked really well together. GO TO RECIPE >
