30-minute Thursday: Orzo with sauerkraut and spiced seitan; vegetable slaw
...but on Friday, because my schedule was moved around this week. The title says it all. The orzo was inspired by this post over on i eat food, though I didn't have Renae's recipe before me when I was cooking, and ended up doing something quite different with the seitan, which is more of my disaster seitan, spiced up considerably with onions, garlic, cayenne, dill, nutmeg, pepper, tomato juice, and soy sauce. The orzo was boiled in water flavoured with All-season blend (see sidebar for recipe), then drained and mixed with the sauerkraut.
The salad was simply raw beet, zucchini, daikon radish, and carrot grated and mixed with a little chopped parsley and minced red radish on top, served with an absolutely delicious dressing of Vegenaise mixed with lime juice, lime zest, and tarragon. M-m-m! A dressing with three ingredients that takes less than a minute to stir together and is really one of the best there is.
Here it is again, all messed up:
