Simple Simmered Seitan~pg 50; Savory Vegetable Cobbler~pg 166

VegCookbookClub May recipes from Vegan on the Cheap by Robin Robertson:

New month, new cookbook! Or rather a cookbook I've had a long time and made one recipe out of it-Mu Shu Burritos. Now I've made a whole list of recipes I want to try.

I had alot of energy yesterday and decided to tackle making some seitan (wheatmeat). It's easy but it takes an hour to simmer. I like this particular seitan recipe because it makes about 2 pounds. I divided it into 4 portions so I can freeze for later use. I love the texture; it's not as hard and chewy as other recipes I've tried.

Hot and bubbly from the oven.

Yum! This reminds me of the frozen pot pies I ate as a kid. I even added some ketchup to mine like I always did. This is the kind of food my hubby likes to eat; so I aim to please! I usually don't like to make long drawn-out recipes and this took over 2 hours to cook everything but it was worth it.

  1. It's funny. The cobbler looks just like the cassoulet from Veganomicon.
