Okay. Dinner was not as pretty as I had hoped. But it actually tasted pretty amazing. I mostly followed the recipe on Fat Free Vegan. I really love all the recipes I've tried from this site. They are all pretty simple and EASY to follow. Obviously my stuffed seitan didn't turn out quite like Susan's did, but I'm sure the taste was pretty close.
In case you all didn't know, you do not need to use oil to saute your veggies! Just pop your veggies in your pan, as if you were going to saute or stir fry with oil, and let them get all yummy smelling and soft, stirring occasionally. Then add about 1/4 cup water or veggie broth to get up any of the brown, cooked on bits. There you go. No oil saute.
So, I mixed up the veggies to saute, then worked on the seitan. Now, this seitan recipe has a few.... "different" ingredients that you don't find in just every seitan recipe. Not that it's a bad recipe - it's actually delicious! I was just a little surprised to see ground flax seed and oat meal on my ingredient list :P
I started kind of cleaning after I got my "roulade" in the oven. I was surprised at how quickly it came around. Mine you, I'm not one that "likes" to clean, I just like my house to be clean. I swear, I would love little brownies to come clean the place while I was asleep. Alas, I don't live in fairy tale land.... *sigh* So, I set about cleaning it up all by myself.
So, dinner was great. Had "roulade" (I keep putting quotes around it, since it didn't really roll up) and fiesta corn.
I finished my evening with a lovely Earl Gray/lavender tea that I got from a friend at work. If you should find yourself in possession of such a tea, I suggest you only steep it for about 3 minutes. The longer it steeps, the soapier the lavender flavor gets. But when you get the time just right, it's amazing :)
