Food Porn Overload, Part I

I got out of class super early today, so I thought I'd take advantage of this bit of free time and catch up on posting photos here.


Here we have Joanna's chicken-style seitan, breaded and sauteed, with mashed potatoes and broccoli on the side. This seitan is the first simmered seitan that I've actually liked. Joanna and her recipes are fantastical. (It's a tester recipe, so I can't give it away. Sorry!) The breaded and sauteed bit reminded me of this pan-fried chicken my dad always makes. Very tasty. The seitan, I mean. Well, the chicken was tasty too, but that was a looooong time ago.


More Joanna porn. This time it's her sun-dried tomato cream sauce over whole wheat penne. Broccoli and bread on the side. This stuff is awesome. I love sun-dried tomatoes.


Lemon poppyseed muffins from the Candle Cafe Cookbook. Good but dry and not nearly lemony enough. Of course, I used whole wheat pastry flour and subbed applesauce for most of the margarine, but I do that to all the muffins I make and they're usually quite a lot better in texture than this.


More breaded seitan. This time I used a cornmeal coating and baked it; it wasn't as good as the sauteed stuff.


Fire-Roasted Quinoa and Black Beans, except with a small can of fire-roasted tomatoes and two cans of beans, one black and one garbanzo. This was my first time cooking with or eating quinoa. It's good stuff.

More tomorrow! Also coming soon: the rest of the Lightlife reviews.

I would totally go for a sun-dried tomato cream sauce! That looks great.

I made my husband make the Quinoa and Black Beans last week. Good stuff, it's definitely a recipe going into our repertoir - it should be really easy to swap out ingredients (I'm thinking maybe some garbonzos).

I'm glad you liked it! Definitely try it with garbanzo beans. It's excellent that way.
