What have I been cooking up in my cauldron?
"Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,--
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble."
Nope--I kept it vegan today. I've been cooking up a Stew of Seitan. I borrowed the recipe for homemade seitan from Urban Vegan. If you haven't had a chance to check out her page, give it a gander! She's a very talented vegan cook.
They puffed up!
After making the seitan, I saved some for sandwiches, but decided to make a stew with the majority. I consulted Robin Robertson's Cookbook, "Vegan Planet" and chose to do a slight adaptation of Belgian Style Seitan Stew with Dark Beer. (she has a blog, too--that link goes to her recipe) Beer? Yes, please!
...and what good would stew be without the ubiquitous loaf of sourdough?
I don't know who created this, but it was my favorite YouTube of the day.
