Sing the title to the tune of My Sharona, it will be in your head the rest of the day!! (it even made me look up the lyrics out of curiosity)

For my first post, I thought I would stick with something simple.....vegan food! No, this is not going to be a food blog, but I do plan on posting plenty of my culinary creations (the recipes mostly thanks to others, but I try to add a personal touch when I feel inspired to do so). Making seitan has been on my to-do list for awhile now, and this past weekend I finally found a recipe I was willing to give a shot. So I made Veggeroni (seitan pepperoni) following the recipe exactly from Fat-free Vegan Kitchen. The aroma of the fennel and mustard seeds made it even smell like pepperoni!

Last night I used the veggeroni in a wrap for dinner for my borfriend and I. Sauteed it with some green and red peppers, then added spinach, brown rice, black beans, corn, fresh cilantro, avocado, and some chipotle sauce.....mmmmm, tasty! You can eat the stuff cold too, it would be great on sandwiches. I think tomorrow night it will be a perfect pizza topping.

So go ahead, give veggeroni a try, remember, fake meat saves lives!!

I just bought the spices to make this tonight, although I just realized when I went to post that I forgot to get the wheat gluten. D'OH! Oh well, I probably won't have time to make it until the weekend anyway. I am glad to see it endorsed yet again!
