Dinner 1/03

Tomatillo Braised Seitan with Mustard Greens
(heavily adapted from Rick Bayless: tomatillo, onion, garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper, mustard greens)

Smoked Paprika Sweet Potato Fries

Refried Jasmine Rice w/ Mexican Oregano and Cubanelle Raja

Oyster Mushroom Salad
(with avocado dressing)

We still had some tomatillo's that were hanging in there after the holiday season -- so into the broiler they went for five minutes until softened. The tomatillos were pureed in the Vita-Mix with a 1/2 cup of cilantro, salt and 1/2 cup of veg stock. Meanwhile, we sauteed two packages of diced seitan, two sliced onions and four chopped garlic cloves, the added the pureed tomatillo mixture and put into a 350 degree oven to braise for 30 minutes. In the last 10 minutes we added the chopped mustard greens.
