and it really looks awesome, doesn’t it? Only it wasn’t. It was only good. The flavor was fantastic, but the texture was too soft. If anyone has suggestions on how to firm up the ground seitan (I added garbanzo flour and some vital wheat gluten, but it just wasn’t enough), I’d really appreciate it. We topped them with the special sauce from Eat Air. That sauce is really special. Give it a try. It’ll work on any sandwich. Today we had the leftover sauce with added onions and capers for reubens. Mmmmmm.
I haven’t posted cookies in a while and I’ve missed making them. To fix that, here are the Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies (tester) from Garrick and Kelly’s upcoming cookie book. I know, you’re probably thinking it can’t come soon enough. So many good recipes from that cookie creating team.
And, a simple pasta with a cool name: Spring Italian Pasta. The key to this is roasting the tomatoes. I used cherry tomatoes and found several recipes for roasting them on the web. One said 8 hours at 200 degrees, another said 1/2 an hour at 400 degrees. So if you try it, do it however you want. I’m sure they’ll turn out great. I roasted with olive oil, garlic slices and tossed it all with spinach and some roasted cauliflower and other spices. It’s great for a weeknight. I’m planning to roast some tomatoes ahead of time and use them in other dishes, too.
One other thing! One of my recipes was blogged at Vegan.com! Thanks a lot, Erik! While I haven’t quite figured out how to link a small banner from that site, I hope to. In the meantime, it’s a great site. Go check it out!
