Seitan Piccata

Seitan Piccata is what to serve to non-vegans to showcase a classic dish that isn't missing the meat. Rich and savory doesn't even begin to cover it.
The seitan is from the Yellow Rose Recipes by Joanna Vaught and the piccata sauce is from The Candle Cafe Cookbook. Lightly fry the seitan and serve with the lemony capery winey piccata sauce. The sides are quinoa and broccoli with miso-tahini. I just can't get enough of the miso-tahini.
Joanna had a previous recipe on her website for seitan cutlets that I used all the time, but she replaced it with the recipe from the book. I couldn't find the old one and the new one from the book worked just as well. The broth was super rich and delicious.
The last time we went to Candle 79, the Ninja got the seitan piccata and asked me why I never cook this for him. So I whipped it up tonight and he said this is his favorite vegan dish. I'll have to make it more often. I will cook for praise.

Hi Jenn! Love the dishes you make with seitan, you're inspiring me to try out new recipes :)

Keeping my fingers crossed that I will find it in Brussels, Belgium where I am moving in a few days for work... the national dish there is some kind of beer-braised beef and friends already living in the city have told me it's pretty tricky to get vegetarian/vegan products over there *sigh* so I am thinking that I will make the seitan at home if I don't find it.

Keep up the good work with this blog!
