Dinner 8/02

BBQ Seitan

Mixed Green Salad with Cherry Tomatoes

Mashed Potatoes


Chocolate Cherry Swirled Cheesecake

For dessert Liz made a fabulous Chocolate Cherry Swirled Cheesecake (much like this one from Thanksgiving 2006). My wife spoils me, yes she does...

Here's a close-up shot with chocolate shavings and whipped cream -- we like whipping the the Soyatoo "Topping Cream" way better than the stuff in the can. It gets fluffy and stays there. You can also add little things (like vanilla extract) and whip it (good) using the stand mixer.

But I'm getting ahead of myself here. For dinner, we made BBQ Seitan
using the same technique from the Chinese version, made in May -- just substituting our usual Maple Syrup and Bourbon BBQ Sauce recipe and braising the homemade seitan strips (which are first coated in cornstarch and deep-fried for 3-5 minutes) for 30 minutes as it was a thicker BBQ sauce than the original.
