Day 8 - Seitan!

For my final French dish of the week, I made seitan bourguignon. Instead of trying to veganize something by Ina Garten or Guy Fieri (really) I decided to try Taymer Mason's recipe, seen here. You should totally check that link out, her photo makes it long so much more appetizing. I mean, look:
Isn't it funny how the least photogenic food is also the most delicious? I used the seitan cutlet recipe from Veganomicon and it turned out perfect.

So, I'm having another giveaway. Would you like some of these, stuffed in a surprise goodie bag with some other fun vegan items?
Leave me a comment (with your email!) and I'll pick another winner on Wednesday. Due to shipping, I'm limiting this one to the US and Canada. I'm sorry, my worldly friends! I'll have another chance for you!

This is just a reply, not an entry :D

Ugly food is the most comforting :)

I've never made a seitan bourguignon. I've made a mushroom bourguignon and it was great. This looks really good as well.

Ha ha... it's so true. It kills me when I make something really amazing and am like THAT TASTED SO GOOD and then later I look back at the pictures and am like blergh really?

On the other hand, amazing looking food usually tastes great too. Maybe I just think everything's delicious.

Oooooh I love seitan! There was this place near me in NY that used to make this amazing seitan dish with a peanut sauce and now I want it again! Mmm!

I'm not trying to enter the competition I just wanted to say that the seitan bourguignon sounds fantastic.

Wait... are those whole cloves of garlic? Please tell me those are whole cloves of garlic?

Wow, this sounds amazing (and I would love to win!). I've never tried to make bourguignon but I love that it uses marmite. I'll have to try this! And it really is impossible to photo brown, saucy foods. You did well!

I am always on the lookout for more bourguignon recipes. I adore Smitten Kitchen's portobello version but this looks wonderful, too. :)

Kind of looks like a stew that I make - it's another one of those not-at-all-pretty meals, that surprises you by being yummy!
