i'm not one to worship food, but--well hell's bells, who am i kidding? i love food. if i had to pick another faith, i'd hands down worship seitan-(giggling). how evil can wheat meat actually be, unless you're gluten intolerant? these are pics of the seitanic red and white bean jambalaya from veganomicon. everyone at home thought it was sooooo awesome, that we decided to put it into our regular meal rotation! *note: if you are allergic to wheat, you could easily use tofu or tempeh in this. if you're allergic to soy and wheat, you could just stick with the beans. if you're allergic to soy, wheat, and beans--i might just cry if i were you. that has to be horrible!
it's a cinch to make and it makes a metric butt load of food, so you better be going to a potluck or have some tupperware handy so you can throw a few servings into the freezer. note: i cheated on the recipe a little and used some store bought seitan i scored at the food pantry plus i pre-cooked the rice in a rice steamer, and added it in the pot with the veggies, tomatoes, beans, and seitan. that way i didn't have to use vegetable stock, i omitted that and just stuck with the canned tomatoes and tomato paste. i also upped the cayenne pepper for an extra punch. it was mighty spicy, but i still couldn't resist eating this with some frank's red hot.
