"Reinventing Indulgence" One meal at a time!

It’s 2-4-1 today! Two delicious spontaneous recipes by me! Yes, the simple thrown together last minute recipes- those are mine hehe. Once I started to think about it- I came up with a few different things to make with seitan! I guess you can say I am having a high power protein week!


I decided to make fake chicken McNuggets. Wait.. what am I saying? lol- they are already fake and loaded with pink slime- yuk! Let’s call what I made Seitan nuggets! Thank goodness I was having a coconut moment because these came out better than expected!


Seitan Nuggets

Seitan
Extra virgin coconut oil
Coconut milk
Whole wheat bread crumbs
Salt & pepper


I had to do something fun with all this seitan that I had made yesterday. Something came over me to make nuggets and luckily I had everything I needed. 


I began with a bowl of coconut milk and a bowl of breadcrumbs for the dipping. I heated a frying pan and dropped in my favorite extra virgin coconut oil. I dipped the seitan into the coconut milk and then into the breadcrumbs. I had so many that I had to make two batches. These were a big hit at work as I told them they were fake McNuggets. I guess they knew I really wouldn’t show up or ever pay for that stuff. I still wanted something different. My MIRACLE NOODLES came in the mail today so I made my own VEGAN SEITAN BOLOGNESE. I only named it after I was eating it- it seemed appropriate as no planning was involved here. 


SEITAN BOLOGNESE

These “throw together” meals come natural when you lived most of your life with good family cooks around. I’m not one of them but my brother, Mom, Grandmother and Grandpa are/were for sure! I was hungry so I put together exactly what I wanted to taste:
Olive oil
Garlic
Tomatoes
Noodles
Seitan
Hot red pepper flakes


The crunchy semi burnt flakes from the seitan pushed this right into the bolognese feeling. It was surprising and insanely delicious. I gave all the nuggets away so I guess I have to begin all over the next time I’m craving a super protein week with fun and exciting surprises.
