Oh my goodness you guys, I made the Pecan-Crusted Seitan and Sicilian Collards and WOOOOOW....so incredibly tasty and satisfying.Gonna make the Peanut Butter Cups in just about and hour or two....if they make it to the muffin pan - LOL!! Just kidding, I do have SOME willpower, sheesh!
Ok, my question is about seitan - I used pre-made seitan from WF and I couldn't for the life of me get it into cutlet shapes - so what the hey, I had amazing Pecan-Crusted Seitan Nuggets - LOL! It still turned out fab, I can roll with it. ;) Is it POSSIBLE to shape it into cutlets, or is the only way to make your own? I know Alicia recommends making your own but I was scurred, this being my first time working with seitan.
Sounds so yummy! My (limited) experience with seitan has been defaulted to nuggets as well. I once tried to make a 'fried chicken' type recipe where you were supposed to have big hunks of seitan crusted with cornmeal and I ended up with cornmeal-crusted nuggets. Delish, but not what I was really going for... I only have access to one brand of seitan in my vegan-challenged town, it comes in a bag inside a blue box- can't remember the brand.
Thank you so much, so glad to know I'm in awesome company! Care to share your cornmeal nuggets recipe, it sounds fabulous.... :) Eeeek, I can't remember the name of the seitan I got either! It's a man's name....it's got a very old-fashioned "paper" band around it....anyhow, like yours, it was delish!
hi! i would say the recipes work best when you buy the regular packs of seitan (vacuumed packed in the blue box) and cut them into large chunks. You can buy the chicken-style seitan, but this usually doesn't work as well....go for the large chunk-style seitan
Hi sweetie! Thank you so much - I so wish I could remember whether the sleeve was blue - I remember it being a natural color - like the unbleached liners I used for the YUUUUMMY PB Cups! The seitan was vacuum-packed - it might've been the one you're talkin' about - anyway, I'll certain know next time...and oh yes, there will SO be next time, this was DELICIOUS.
In fact, I took the leftover Sicilian Collards, heated them in a skillet with some (about 2/3 C cooked) leftover brown rice and spooned it onto/into a small butternut squash half...OH....MY...GAWD, it was good!
mmmmmmm--sounds so yummy!!!! The only seitan my hubby & I tried is by field roast.......(the vegan sausages-mexican style & the apple) and we also bought the field roast stuffed celebration roast but we haven't tried it yet. Over the wknd-we tried the aged (3 year) org. barley miso--twas yum w/ the bragg liq. aminos!!
