More from “Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker”

I think I’m done slow-cooking for a bit, but I just had to share the last couple recipes I made from this new cookbook.  One of them is called “Green Bean and White Bean Casserole” and is a lot like that commercial classic, THE Green Bean Casserole, except minus all the gross chemical filled stuff and ten million pounds of fat.  (ok, ten million pounds may be a slight exaggeration, but anyone that considers that casserole a “vegetable” is severely mistaken as well)  This version is completely Vegan, and delicious, and since I’m a giver,  I even found the recipe for you!…you just need to look at page 347 in the Google Book View I linked to.  No need to thank me.  I cooked mine a bit longer than directed, and it got nice and crusty on the edges, which I was quite into.


Check out page 165 in the Google Reader for the next recipe I tried, which was the slow-simmered Seitan Stifado.  Instead of normal seitan, I used these dry-roasted wheat gluten chunks I picked up at the Asian Market a while back.  These look an awful lot like brains, which is hard to photograph attractively, but they really just taste like a slightly spongier version of seitan.  Not bad…and a good stand-in when I don’t have the time to simmer a whole pot of seitan from scratch.


I had to use normal onions instead of the pearl ones called for in the recipe, since they simply weren’t available at my market this week, fresh or frozen.  otherwise I stuck to the recipe, and I really did like the flavors in this…they weren’t wildly different from anything I’d had before, but good.  I wouldn’t recommend the roasted gluten chunks for someone just switching to a veggie lifestyle who’s bothered by strange textures though…

And now comes Passover…I may get one more carb-loaded meal up here, but if not a Happy Pesach to my readers who celebrate and Happy Easter to those of you enjoying that holiday.  And to everyone a happy Spring Cleaning Season!!!

  • Mmmm – the Green Bean Casserole sounds yummy! I wasn’t able to advance to page 347 in the reader, though. It said something like “you are not authorized to read past this page”… Any chance you can post the recipe? Thanks! ~ Angie

    One of my co-workers, your roomie, posted a link to your food blog and man, your recipes look great. As a meat-eater I’m thoroughly impressed. I’m definitely gonna try some of these. I’ll let you know how I make out.
