The first recipe is Spicy Cranberry Chutney. If you want to tone it down, remove the serrano chilies and reduce ginger to 1 teaspoon. I am using apples in addition to cranberries which are much cheaper! If you don't have oranges ( I hope you have some zest in the freezer! ) you can use water or any fruit juice you have around.
- 2 c cranberries
- 2 apples
- 2 Serrano chilies
- 1 T chopped fresh ginger
- Juice of 2 oranges
- 2 3 inch pieces of orange zest
- ½ c apple cider vinegar
- 1 t cinnamon
- 1 ¼ c sugar
- ½ t salt
Place in saucepan and cover. Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes or so. Stir often.
Here is my recipe for Seitan "Breast". This is an all purpose seitan which
All Purpose Seitan
2 c Vital Wheat Gluten
½ c nutritional yeast
1 T Tony’s Cajun Seasoning
½ t sage powder ( not rubbed sage )
1 t fennel seeds
1 t lemon pepper
4 T onion powder
2 T garlic powder
½ t Italian seasoning
1 T chili powder
1 ½ c bean cooking liquid
2 T olive oil
Mix together and knead for several minutes. Spray a big piece of foil or use a paint straining bag and form into a “breast” like shape. Fill a pressure cooker with enough water to cover a steamer by 3 inches.. Place seitan on steamer and pressure cook for 45 minutes. Allow pressure to come down naturally. Remove seitan and cool before serving.
You can add a couple bay leaves and some salt to the water if desired.
To use as Thanksgiving main course, slice and place in baking dish with gravy, cover and heat in oven until warm.
