Can't believe I never posted about this...
The leftover 'Shroom Fondue that we just can't get enough of (and made for our guests recently) was heavenly on a potato roll (found incidentally vegan at the local large chain grocery) with a bit of tomato sauce and seitanroni slices (sauteed then steamed a bit to plump them up and make them a tad less dry). So good in fact, that it warranted a side of the remaining seitanroni to blanket. With the addition of some of the summer's sweet white corn Mmmmmm, what great,quick and easy meal!
The following night, not really in the mood to whip up more seitan and trying to have a soy free day, I decided on lentils of the Sloppy variety a la Vegan Core. I kept most everything the same
except I opted for two cans of no salt added tomatoes and about 2T tomato paste instead of the sauce and used fresh chopped basil for the generous pinch of dried. Here they are simmering in the pot.
I can't believe I'd never attempted to make this before. Such great flavor and reeeeeeally satisfying. Not all that thick to be putting on a bun and no buns in the house anyway led to, what I think, was a much better way to serve them up.....
on a bed of quinoa, my most favorite grain with a sprinkling of hemp seeds. can you say protein? hehe. and no soy to be found. yay! sometimes, I just really want to break away from relying so heavily on one source of protein. meals like this make that a snap.
In lieu of dessert, and with full bellies we opted for our favorite nighttime tea
the Valerian root really works for us and makes relaxing before bedtime a truly serene experience....even banAnna and Tabes were ready for some serious sleep time.
