Here's my seitan stroganoff, it's sour cream based but you could use tofutti if you're vegan: http://vegetationramblings.blogspot....il-6-2007.html And this: http://vegetationramblings.blogspot....ntil-dahl.html These are good when the weather is warm: http://vegetationramblings.blogspot....le-bit-of.html and last but not least, butter chicken: (it's vegan if you use tofutti) http://vegetationramblings.blogspot....en-seitan.html
There's a blue cheeze dressing recipe in the Uncheese Cookbook. I've had it and quite liked it, it's only a salad dressing though, not an uncheese. I believe one of the American soy cheese companies has a blue cheese but I'm not sure which one. Maybe Sheese? ETA: http://www.buteisland.com/a_blue_sheese.htm
I haven't had a lot of luck. Unless you own a super good blender the cashew based (or nut based) ones always come out a little grainy. I've not had much luck with coconut based ones, except for a single recipe a blogging friend made for me, it's peanut butter flavour. I tried using that as a base for a different flavour but it wasn't quite right either. You could try using mimicreme (sp?) if you have access to it, I've read some good reports about it or you could try...
Haha! I'm not a cutlet fan either but I changed them around to be white bean and sage cutlets and I loved them. But I don't think they're anything like meat. You could be right in some respects about how long it's been since you ate meat. The first time I tried seitan I wanted to vomit, I couldn't believe people even ate the stuff let alone raved about it. Now I love it! But it's been a year and a half since I've eaten any meat so maybe the memory is starting to fade a...
I have the same issues, however my Mr won't touch tofu or seitan or anything else he says is "trying hard to be meat" He also won't eat Indian food, anything with too much garlic, anything without meat (except a pasta once a month or so but he usually tells me "it would be better if it had ::insert meat product here::") and he won't eat beans or lentils (well unless it's lunch time and it's baked beans on toast). He really does seem to think my food is disgusting...
I'm another one with multiple food allergies. I don't eat eggs (although if my husband can get some from a friend who has chooks that roam free on his property I'm okay with eating them), I can't eat soy (anything except the teeniest bit of soy sauce) and we don't get the rice subs over here like you do in the US (but I have made a promise to myself that if and when they get here I'll be jumping on the wagon for sure). I also have to limit beans to at most once a week...
Mmmm I LOVE Indian Food, off to look!
This is from Isa's blog http://farm1.static.flickr.com/182/4...ebb97b47be.jpg Mine are about 1cm thick. Maybe you baked them a little long, while mine aren't dried out they are a fairly dry and firm pattie, you could try frying them although mine had a weird squidgy texture when I did and I didn't like them.
The reason he wants to get her on this total elimination diet is basically to see if she improves. He likely suspects food intolerance rather than allergy. You can test for allergies with a skin prick test, intolerance however can only be diagnosed (for now) with a strict elimination diet. Once she has gotten rid of all her symptoms and it's been another few weeks symptom free he will challenge her by introducing one allergen at a time. If her excema flares up or she...
You can use seitan in a lot of traditional crock pot recipes (just brown it with the onions and then throw it in, it comes out soft, I made Seitan with Red Wine and Mushroom Gravy from fresh from the vegetarian slow cooker last night and it was great, even my unveg kiddies loved it, next time I'd add broccoli to it at the last minute but otherwise it was great).
