Seitan and Cannellini Bean Stew, Patatas Bravas, Green Beans with Garlic Sauce, White Bean Soup

Dinner 12/05

Seitan and Cannellini Bean Stew
(seitan, onion, garlic, smoked paprika, cannellini beans, smoked salt, pepper, tamari, sherry)

Patatas Bravas
(boiled red potatoes, which are then fried in olive oil and topped with a sauce of garlic, smoked paprika, smoked salt, cumin, red pepper flakes and red wine vinegar, then finished with fried poblano peppers)

Green Beans with Garlic Sauce
(sauce: garlic, almonds and bread, all toasted in olive oil, add salt and white pepper, then puree with a little water to make a paste)

White Bean Soup
(onion, garlic, soyrizo, smoked paprika, pepper, salt, great northern beans, fennel stock)

The seitan stew is a riff on "intoxicated beef" -- and a cup of sherry will in fact do just that. ;) (most, but not all of the alcohol cooks out over a long, slow cooking period, leaving just the flavor).

Traditionally there should be chickpeas in the soup (and the stew), but we were out...

Finally the patatas bravas were a little more bravas than usual, but it in a really tasty way -- the poblano pepper was sort of a throw in -- but it certainly did add another level of heat to the dish.
