A Better Hash
This time I used the shredder attachment on the food processor and threw in one small sweet potato, half a green bell pepper, and a quarter of a large red onion. Add three large cloves of garlic from the garlic press, a little salt and pepper, and some jalapenos. What looks like meat on top is actually chorizo-style seitan sausage. For those who are unfamiliar, seitan is a meat substitute made from wheat gluten. Here's a link to an informative (I almost said interesting until I read past the first few paragraphs...) article about it: Seitan--The Vegetarian Wheat Meat
This made two large servings which Justin and I ate alongside our pumpkin banana chocolate chip pancakes this morning. For all my vegan baker friends: I can't seem to do without the egg in my pancakes. The result is just not appealing to me. Any suggestions for good substitutes?
