Seitan Worshipers

Our Moroccan Chickpea adventure through the pages of the Candle 79 cookbook was too good to stop at just one meal!  After all, it was the best thing that has ever come out of the Veg-Berger kitchen!  So for KT's final night at home before heading back North, we decided to celebrate with one more incredible meal.

This is Candle 79's Seitan Piccata.  The vegan entree that the restaurant is known for!  It consists of seitan cutlets, creamed spinach, fried potato cakes, all drenched in a lemon-caper sauce good enough to bathe in.  At first glance, the recipe seemed daunting, but we were up for a challenge!

First, we prepared the potato mixture, formed it into cakes, cooked and creamed the spinach, and created the elegant sauce. The day before, Pam made sure to whip up her famous vegan seitan roast (chicken style), which we sliced into cutlets.

We fried up the potato cakes and the cutlets. Then it was time to assemble!

We stacked the separate components right in the middle of a moat of sauce.  First the potato cake, smothered in greens....

Followed by the seitan cutlet and garnished with caper berries!  It was a gourmet feast for the history books!

These delicious stacks didn't stand a chance!! It was the perfect ending to a perfect visit.  It was a blast!

Peace, love, and book nooks
Pam and KT
