Hey guys! thank you all for your suggestions they are great!! I kind of ran with some inspo from meg moo and rasitha.wijesekera I cooked one of my favourite quick dishes. turns out we didn't have a lot of time that night to make something super classy like I'd hoped, so I went with a HUGE batch of seitan fajitas, with sour cream and two types of salsa. I did have a great vegan sour cream recipe, but not on me so we went classic dairy sour cream. I followed up with a coconut whip cream and sour cherry vegan black forrest cake.
For the seitan part of the fajitas I used this recipe tripled:
8 seitan cutlets (about 1 pound)
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seed oil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
¼ teaspoon ground allspice (use only if your spice is fresh)
2 pinches ground cloves
the recipe is from my fav. stew here: http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-...ith-gremolata/
*** I highly recommend you try it for a fall dinner soon ***
then I just pan fried up some yellow onions, threw in a bunch of peppers (red, yellow, orange) threw the cooked seitan in, maybe some more smoked paprika and chili powder and voila!!
our salsa consisted of:
1/2 can corn or 1 fresh cob
1 vine ripened tomato
1/4 red onion
juice of 1/2 lime
salt and pepper to taste
For dessert I used Colleen Patrick Gourdreau's chocolate cake recipe, I have it memorized by now, It's in her cookbook The Joy of Vegan Baking, but you can find it all over the place online so here's the recipe: http://familyhw.com/2011/10/vegan-re...hocolate-cake/
Just split the recipe into two separate cake pans and cook for 25 mins (in gas convection oven)
Then I just topped each layer with coconut whipped cream (recipes everywhere on the internet) and some canned sour cherries, I drained the juice into a pot, heated it on the stove to reduce a bit, got impatient, added some cornstarch and a bit of sugar (to taste) and there you have an easy cherry sauce.
My mother and sister-in-law loved the cake so much they asked for the recipe!
Overall I'd say it was a success, next time though I think I would go with a nice quick pasta dish. It just seems fancier than fajitas. haha!
