Sorry you cannot see the seitan steak but the sauce is pretty right?

Here is some food porn for you lovely seitan steak and a french sauce I adapted from steak au poivre. I love to mix French sauces and my Caribbean style sauces. Have a little dinner party coming up on Friday I hope it goes well.

    Wow, your seitan steaks look so good. I would love it since I like seitan. You are right though about that it is an acquire taste.

    My suggestion is to make vegan crepes filled with spinach, mushrooms, vegan ricotta, and vegan bechamel sauce. Bryanna Grogan from Notes from the Vegan Feast Kitchen has this recipe. Or you can make anything with phyllo dough like spinach pie, spanakopita, etc. Anything with phyllo dough is a great presentation for guests vegan or non-vegan.

    Here is the link of the vegan crepes:

    The mushrooms sauce on that seitan steak may be good with these crepes. Yum, that sauce looks so good!

    I think your original plan of the ‘steak’ and yam ( I LOVE yam)sounded really nice but I understand the need to give yourself something stress free. Is it a formal dinner or a more relaxed friends over affair? If the latter it may hav been interesting to approach it from a bbq type angle but you can do that on another occasion…good luck on Friday I am sure they will love every course:)

    I too made doubles. Have the pics waiting there for a column they are to be included in.

    About the entree for your dinner menu. Why not do stuff portobello mushrooms? I am not familiar with seitan, but perhaps you can use that as part of the stuffing? Along with herbs etc. I think your husband’s suggestion was a good one, to slice the seitan and pan-fry to give it a crust.

    Oh my…those dishes look so good. Why change them or who you are. You are a great cook and they should be happy to have that delicious meal made for them. If you like chicken style seitan…it is superb inside stir fry vegetables…use fresh mushrooms, green beans, red peppers, onions, eggplant, asparagus, chick peas and blake beans, serve those vegetables over your great brown rice and fried plantian bananas on the side…a great toss salad and dinner rolls. This dish is always a hit when I have guests. Also I made eggplant different than I uasually do and it was great. Good luck.

    Hi Maren,

    This looks excellent!! Anything with gravy is good to me. I also like the idea of browning in your previous post–I eat lentil soup often, but am curious to try it using your method.

    Have a good week!
