Vegan MoFo Day 17: Vic's deli slices
Y'all know Vic, right? Over at The Life? He recently posted a recipe for seitan deli slices that piqued my interest, as I've been meaning to try a steamed seitan for a while now. Vic's recipe was really easy to make, and the combo of steaming and baking managed to cook the huge seitan log all the way through, with no doughy softness in the middle. The flavor is nice, if a bit basic. It's going to be fun to play with different flavor combinations, maybe one with lots of tomato, basil and garlic for an Italian loaf? This is about as economical as you can get too. The recipe makes an enormous loaf of protein, maybe two pounds worth if I had to guess. I bet the ingredients cost me around $4.00. I have no doubt that the seitan loaf freezes well, so this is on my list of foods to make and freeze before the baby comes in March.
Go check out Vic's deli slices. Dude's had a vegan cookbook in the works since before every vegan and their mother put one out!
My seitan slices. Sorry about the craptastic picture, cooking at midnight makes for bad lighting.
