The Vietnamese sandwiches with dipping broth made another appearance on our table Sunday night. This is my favorite meal; I don't know why I don't make it every week. At first, I wasn't sure if I liked the Veganomicon seitan cutlet recipe. The cutlets are baked, and then you thinly slice and saute them, resulting in a very firm, chewy, almost tough texture. Tony loved them from the start, and since I would much rather see him eating faux meat than real meat, I kept making them. Now they've totally won me over, too.
Last night I made the Edamame Pesto from Appetite for Reduction, using fresh basil from my garden. I can't say enough good things about this recipe, guys. High in protein, low in fat...and it's pesto, which I love. I am a basil fiend, haha. And it takes no time at all. By the time your pasta is done cooking, the sauce is ready to go. I served it with ziti and cherry tomatoes, also from my garden.
And now, a fun little quiz I swiped from the vegan collegian. I'd love to hear your answers to some of these.
