Seitanic Jambalaya!

I’ve been wanting to make the jambalaya from Veganomicon for awhile now, and I was happy with it once I finally did. It made about a ton, as promised, and I had to freeze a bunch of it. Now, reheating frozen rice dishes is a tricky business: you can easily take the turn into Mushy Town. Which I did, the first time I tried with this. So, feeding my dear boyfriend late one night, I put more planning and thought into it and my efforts were rewarded (I served it with a mess of maple-walnut collards–thought up a dish by myself, and of course, didn’t take a picture nor post it.) Thoroughly thaw the jambalaya in its single-serving tupperware that you froze it in, then heat a bit of olive oil in a non-stick pan (non-stick is, I think, kind of required here) and dump in the jambalaya, spreading it out to maximize surface area. Let it fry and sizzle for a couple of minutes, and then start gently flipping it over in sections to brown other spots. Come to think of it, it’s a bit like cooking matzoh brie. Keep doing this until any water has evaporated and you have your desired level of moistness/brown-ness. The bonus of this method is that you get a few crusty little brown bits, which taste smoky and delicious in this dish. Now you can freeze jambalaya to your heart’s content!

Oh, my poor neglected blog! I’m back after my long break, blog. Have some seitan piccata from Veganomicon: you must be hungry!
The next day I took the leftover piccata sauce and roasted it with a bunch of vegetables!

Ethiopian Seitan and Peppers

This is the Ethiopian Seitan and Peppers from Vegan With a Vengeance. I halved the seitan and peppers and made the full amount of sauce, so this was extra spicy and saucy. And tasty! It worked really well with the mashed roasted sweet potato and rice.
