100th Post! And lolo is McAwesome.


This is another test recipe for lolo at veganyumyum (check out her latest post about her upcoming cookbook!). These are seitan nuggets, also known as almond fried seitan (and yes, to make up for the fried portion of dinner, we had two vegetables). These were so good! I served them with a mustard sauce I like to make, which is equal parts vegan mayonnaise and dijon mustard mixed with a bit of agave nectar and hot sauce. lolo thinks they make a pretty good McNugget substitute and I agree, although you might want to take that with a grain of salt, since I haven't had McDonald's in the past decade. I used the Vegan with a Vengeance seitan recipe for these.

Since we sadly do not own a grill, we roasted the corn in the oven. We found directions online which said to remove the silk, then wrap it in foil and roast at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes. That wasn't nearly long enough! It took more like 30 minutes, and probably could have used a few more minutes. It was very good, though. I love fresh corn. I can't wait to try making it on a grill, but we won't be getting one until we move into a house.

congrads on your 100th post, perhaps that was your 100th dinner too? the green beans look so freakin' good, like the kind you would find in a southern diner that had been simmering with a chunk o' nasty ham, but of course, yours would be much better!

Happy 100th post anniversary! Those nuggets look delish. They can't compare to the mechanicly seperated molded chicken that mcnuggets are made from. These are fantastic. Everyone deserves to have fried foods once in awhile.

I got some fresh corn on the cob today and can't wait to use it on the 4th.

Bethie, the green beans are actually home grown. My boyfriend's parents grow them in their garden and his momma cans them herself. She gave us several cans, but sadly this was our last one (until we see them again). When I heat them on the stove, I add salt, lots of black pepper, and liquid smoke. Mmmmm....

laura faye,
ah yes, home grown. they look mouth watering delicious. i must figure out how to garden ;) i have a silly book called 'you grow girl' but it's great because the author is young & hip and assumes you are young & poor & have little yard space.

I'll have to check that book out once I have an actual yard, Bethie. It sounds cute.
