Asparagus Crepes and Moroccan Apricot Seitan

I went back to Vegan Dad’s cookbook to try the asparagus crepes I’ve been eyeing for awhile.  I used his dinner crepe recipe as well, eliminating the sugar since I simply wasn’t sure why it was included.  The crepes didn’t taste like they were missing anything, so I stand by my decision.  This may be [...]

Sesame Seitan Kebobs

I don’t have any scallions, so it makes perfect sense that I decided on a “sesame beef and scallion kabob” recipe for dinner.  The original recipe is from the Food Network, but I found it over at Vegan Appetite and made mine based on that.  I chopped up some of the stems from my spring [...]

Seitan Piccata!!!
