Omigosh--Vegan Liver and onions!!
1 14oz can Cedar Lake Seitan (they call them chops)
(Cedar Lake-MGM Foods--Cedar Lake, MI 48812)
You can substitute any other form of Seitan,
or even home made--but the Cedar Lake "Chops" are perfect
We found it at an SDA grocery store (Seventh Day Adventist)
1 whole large onion-chopped
3 cloves fresh garlic-chopped
1 cup sour kraut, partially drained, or not drained
Dixie Diner's Zinfandel seasoning (optional)
Saute onions and sour kraut in a non-stick pan. Spraying
the pan with oil should be unnecessary, just keep the
heat low or medium, and keep the pan covered. After the onions
start to soften, just add everything else, and put
on lots of paprika. Stir frequently to keep it from
adhering to the bottom of the pan.
I like this with fresh mashed potatoes or rice,
and a side of salad greens. We served it with Hain
vegetarian brown gravy, which comes in a little
package (it's vegan also).
Some confirmed vegetarians would probably not eat
this, because it is so close to real liver and
onions. But it is NOT m**t. It just looks, smells
and tastes like it. This is very quick and
easy to make, but not recommended for people
who wouldn't like the taste of liver and onions.
In my SAD days, I loved liver and onions, but
since I have not had liver for over 25 years,(in
any form), I could hardly see myself eating the
real thing, even if I like the taste of it...
For Jewish readers or others, this might be
a start for vegan chopped liver! The Seitan
is fat free.
