I just returned from a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Italy. It is an absolutely beautiful country and the people are amazingly kind. My only complaint is there is not a lot of vegan food.
I have always loved Pasta Fagioli but the restaurants there used chicken broth for a base and usually included some type of meat.
After I returned home and stocked up the refrigerator I created the following recipe. You can eliminate the Tofurky Spinach Pesto Sausage but it does add a lot of flavor to the dish.
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.
This is the first of two consecutive posts on bowls. They turned out really well and are extremely satisfying. You can, of course, try different veggies suited to your individual taste.
It is good both hot and cold and keeps in the refrigerator for a few days.
