I had leftover Lemon/Olive/Garlic Seitan cutlets. I could have frozen the cutlets. But I needed food ideas now, and since I had them, creativity (for me) often comes from panic. Here are my not so necessarily creative recipes, that worked.
Bread or Vegan Naan
Slivers of seitan slices (3/4 cup or so)
Onion slivers (about 1/2 an onion)
Peppers slivered (a pepper or 1/2 a bag of Trader Joe's frozen Pepper Medley)
Mushrooms (a cup or so)
Saute onions/peppers in a wee bit of oil or Earth Balance. Add mushrooms, When they are all tender, add Seitan. Serve it up. Rob put Vegan ranch on it. I didn't put anything on it. Pretty tasty.
Seitan Three Bean Chili
1 1/2 Cups (or 1 rinsed and drained can) White Beans
1 1/2 Cups (or 1 rinsed and drained can) Pinto Beans
1 1/2 Cups (or 1 rinsed and drained can) Black Beans
1 Cup diced Seitan
1 Small jar Salsa (1/2 Jar Water)
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Cayenne
2 diced tomatoes (or a can of diced tomatoes)
Toss all together and let it simmer.
This had bite which wasn't aiyii hot, but nice. The heat of the salsa would make a difference. Mine was a homemade medium.
If my mad dash to prep food Friday night wasn't enough, Saturday morning as I packed up the food, I decided we needed some chocolate treats. It occurred to me that No Bake Cookies would hit the spot.
Come back tomorrow for that recipe.
