Vegan MoFo ~ Creamy Rice With Seitan Bacon & Baby Spinach, Featured Friday Site, & Mostly Liquids - Next Week
About 5 slices of Upton's Natural's Seitan Bacon
Large Handful of Baby Spinach
I used White Rice for this but you could use any rice, really.
For the Sauce:
2 T Earth Balance
3 Cloves Garlic
3 T (Bob's Red Mill's) Flour
3 T (Foods Alive) Nutritional Yeast
2 T White Wine
2 C Almond Milk
Garlic Sea Salt to Taste
At the end I also threw in some Wildtree Heart Spaghetti which is basically a mix of dried herbs. It turned out pretty good and I had a bunch of the sauce left so I am sure I will use that as left overs this weekend, too!
UPDATE: My adventures while using Upton Natural's Seitan Bacon improved last night as I did another BLT using it but this time NOT overcooking! What a difference! It was MUCH better. I will probably pick this product up on a rare occasion when I do come across it. I got this package in Mentor, Ohio about 2 months ago and that was about 2 and a half hours away. I'm probably more apt to use Fakin Bacon which is Tempeh based instead of Seitan based. I will say, tho, this is the best tasting SEITAN I have had to date, tho! It's been years since I have had Seitan because I had a few bad experiences with it years ago...I just didn't like it. BUT...this is a real WINNER when it comes to Seitan! I will no longer be afraid of it thanks to this product!
In other News...Opal is on a Juice Feast/Fast! She's doing really well! Swing by her blog and check it out! She was going to do it for a week but she's extended it for another week because other people wanted to try it as well. Opal is a wonderful source of info! I have been thinking about HOW I am going to participate next week. I think what I will do this time around is do MOSTLY LIQUIDS all next week - Monday thru Friday. This MIGHT include: Teas and Tonics, Juicing and Smoothies, Pureed Soups, Flavored Waters, etc. This will be an adventure for me - a Journey - My Blissful Journey, if you will. I will blog about this journey next week as much as I can.
