Today I decided to make a “Kelp Salad” Fresh Kelp Noodles, with ‘Steak Strips, Mixed Vegetables, and a Tamari and Pepper Flavoring. This dish is so simple and low calorie.. Kelp Noodles($4.99 per pack) are healthy and essentially 18 calories

Seitan Soba Stir Fry: By yours truly:)

Tamari (a Japanese soy sauce, made by natural methods and often aged also)

So on the rare occasion that I find myself cooking a vegan meal instead of going out to enjoy one, I like to make something quick, healthy and fresh:) One of my favorite ( and most loved by my parents) meals to prepare is “Seitan Soba Stir Fry” Grilled Seitan and Onions mixed with Broccoli, Carrots, Mushrooms, Cauliflower, Peppers, and Green Beans with Buckwheat Soba Noodles. I don’t have exact amounts for the “Reduced Sodium  Tamari ($4.29/per bottle) I used, it’s kind of a “how much you want type thing”.  I love this meal and it is so easy to prepare! All of the items today were purchased at Whole Foods. (Pictures Below)

*1 Pack of Grilled “West Soy Seitan” ($4.29): Pre Cut add Onion and put in Pan with light Tamari, Grill for 5 Minutes.

” 2 Packs of “Ohana Buckwheat Soba Noodles”($3.99) These come pre cooked all you have to do is put them on the stove for about 5 minutes to loosen them up.

*2 Packs of Frozen Vegetables ($2.59) Steam Veggies and add to Grilled Seitan .

Grilled Seitan and Onions

 

*After all of that is cooked and drained you throw it all together in one big pot and mix it up..

*Allow it to cook about 5-7 minutes on stove top.. then serve it up and enjoy! Delicious and Nutritious at home:)

Homemade: Seduction Seitan Sandwich.

So today I made my own lunch ( simply due to the fact of having to work- you know otherwise I’d be hitting up a delicious vegan joint in the city to review.. but I make due) I decided to take some seitan ( west soy brand one of my favorites they make different kinds depending on what your cooking) I slice up the seitan and added a little bit of chili powder to it then baked it for about 20 minutes on 400 degrees. I then added it to a seduction roll I got at Wholefoods – a yummy roll filled with seeds, which gives it a perfect crunch. I also put some mustard, lettuce, and tomato on. A simple but amazing sandwich if I do say so myself – a healthy lunch. SO if you ever feel like being creative or maybe saving a little cash cooking at home go ahead and try this seitan- even if you don’t make it a sandwich its amazing by itself!!
