Tonight I made fajitas with some homemade seitan. This is one of our family favorites. It was originally based on the "beef fajitas" from the Joy of Cooking.
juice of 2 limes
3 T chopped cilantro
2 shallots, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 t red pepper flakes
1/4 t coriander
2 bell peppers, cut in 2-inch strips
1/2 lb - 3/4 lb seitan, cut into strips
2 T oil
1/2 c water
Mix together the lime juice, cilantro, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, & coriander in a medium-sized bowl. Add the peppers & seitans & mix well. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes.
In a skillet, heat 1 T of oil over medium high heat. Add the seitan, peppers, & sauce to the skillet, and saute for about 10 min. Meanwhile, heat your tortillas in the oven, at 100 degrees of so... just enough to make them warm and soft. Next, add the water to the the seitan-peppers, give it a quick stir, and cover for 1-2 minutes. Now it's ready! Yum yum yum. This recipe is so fantastic!
Also, I am unable to resist sharing this cute picture of my cat Yummers. Yummers is such a cool and special cat. As I am typing, he is curled up next to me... when I take a bath at night, he comes and sits next to the tub, and - coolest of all - every morning when I do my yoga practice, he comes into the studio with me. He's a very special friend. :) This picture is him hiding under the blanket after a crazy-play session with his green toy.
