Style, style, style! Anyone remember that Lemonheads song, Rick James Style? If so, hum it while you read this post about food in the style of other foods!
Last night we had a delicious, sort of homey meal of Alfredo-Style Fettucine from Vegan Planet and Chicken-Style Seitan from YRR.
My friend Brittany in California sent me Vegan Planet, and I have to say it is one of my favorite cookbooks now. Every recipe so far has been easy to make and they all come out tasty. The alfredo sauce is made of an almond, onion, and soy base. It was great!
One the side (ok I admit we mushed it all together!!) were seitan cutlets from Yellow Rose Recipes. One batch of seitan so far has made roast "beef " po boys, these chicken style cutlets, and there is still enough for one more meal. Who knows what's next! What's even better is that the broth the seitan is cooked and stored in can be used as a veg broth substitute after the seitan is gone. No waste! I love it.
Finally, I opened a can of baby peas, and the masterpiece was complete. Needless to say, it was yummy and there were no leftovers. Now that's style!!!
