I haven’t had a chance to photograph some of my culinary creations. Here’s tonight’s dish. I wish I could say that I made the bbq sauce and the seitan, but I didn’t. Whole Foods has a store brand called 365, and their bbq sauce doesn’t have anything to do with high fructose corn syrup. It is a yummy chipotle citrus sauce that has quite a nice bite. I marinate the seitan for awhile, then in a good size sauce pan, I saute a few onion slices, and add the bbq. I give this a nice slow cook with a cover on it.
In the mean time there are potatoes roasting in the oven, with a little olive oil and s & p. I have made a quick balsamic vinaigrette, a 3-1 olive oil and balsamic vinegar, with salt, pepper, minced onions, a bit of mustard for cohesion. I whisk this thoroughly and pour it lovingly onto the asparagus.
Once the potatoes are out of the oven, I add chopped chives and parsley, gathered fresh from the garden (the neighbor’s because I have a black thumb), and then set them aside. Then the asparagus and pita bread are put in the oven. I roast the asparagus on broil, until firm, but tender, (al dente) and rescue the pita bread while it is still warm and soft.
By this time the seitan is ready. And I put it all together for a great taste sensation for my partner to enjoy.
