Ham Style Seitan

26 Nov

One of the things I miss most from my meat eating days is ham. Not the cruelty and death that comes with it, or even the texture, but the smokey, sweet flavor that’s perfect on pizzas, in salads, or with Sunday dinner. I’ve been on the lookout for a ham seitan recipe for a while, and this recipe seemed to combine all the good flavors of ham in one place.

We ate this sliced into rounds on pizza, but I think this would be a great alternative to Tofurky at a thanksgiving dinner. It would be perfect baked with a glaze and slices of pineapple.  This seitan is a bit soft as is, but if you bake it in the foil for 30 minutes at 350° F it comes out perfect for snacking and slicing.

Thanksgiving Pizza

8 Dec

Last night, Ken and I held our Second Annual Second Thanksgiving, which is completely unofficial and occurs at random. Usually there’s an abundance of post-thanksgiving products in stores and we take the opportunity to have our own, personal thanksgiving. This year we tried the new Gardein Holiday roast on both of our Thanksgivings. The second time around I drizzled extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top, which gave it more flavor and moisture. We also had onion flowers (will be doing a post on that soon), mashed potatoes with almond milk and Earth Balance, and cranberry sauce.
