My husband loves artichokes but when I told him my idea for this recipe he seemed less-than-excited. That is, however, until he tasted it.
I served the pasta on top of pan-grilled romaine leaves but any green would work. It is also good hot or cold and makes a great main or side dish.
Make sure that you use artichoke hearts in water, not oil.
I try to make as many varieties of food as possible and recently had the request for a hearty salad. Sitting in my pantry was some polenta that was about to expire so there was my first ingredient. I have not done that much with seitan so I decided to try to incorporate it, along with pan-fried tofu.
The various flavors of the lemon, tamari, teriyaki, and maple syrup all complement each other and each bite is an in-mouth party for your taste buds.
Up until now, I have not attempted to make my own seitan, so for now, I would recommend Sweet Earth Seitan.
Perfect for summer and so-much-lighter than the typical mayo-variety! Feel free to experiment and add whatever veggies you like best. It is also perfectly fine to use bottled salad dressing in place of the oil/vinegar/seasonings seen below.
Easy to make a day ahead and store in the refrigerator.
