Almond and Bean Fondue and a Sweet Earth Seitan Review

Almond And Great Northern Bean Fondue from Vegan Slow Cooking for Two

Cara Lyons of Cara’s Cravings is giving out the recipe for Almond and Great Northern Bean Fondue from Vegan Slow Cooking for Two. She has an incredible recipe of hers for Roasted Cauliflower and Winter Squash Salad with Arugula and Pomegranate Seeds that I recommend you make. The fondue and salad make the perfect autumn meal!

All of what comes next is not for my gluten-free friends, but I promise to put up the recipe for the green cauliflower cilantro rice soon. It’s not really rice at all – it’s all made of cauliflower!

I love quesadillas. A perfect weeknight food that comes together in minutes using whatever you happen to have on hand. I also love seitan and while I love to make my own, sometimes it’s nice to have an emergency stash in the fridge. That’s where this review comes in.

Sweet Earth Natural Foods sent me a package of goodies to try and while all of them were tasty, the chipotle was my very favorite.  Which I’m sure comes as no surprise knowing my love of all things smoky.

Here it is in the clear plastic is comes in:

And this is what it looks like dumped out – only a little less fuzzy. (Evening photos are not my friends.)

And here it is in my dinner with some refried beans and some salsa. The texture of the seitan was perfect next to the crisp flour tortilla.

Sweet Earth has a curry and a plain seitan too and really all of them make fast week night dinners possible and easy to do. With grounds, strips, slices and satay sized pieces you’ll find some that fit in just about any recipe.  Have you ever had their seitan? What did you think?

    I tried the Sweet Earth seitan (non-spiced) and liked it. The Uptons brand is very good too, particularly the smoky bacon variety. I love seitan but the price of it is pushing me in the direction of trying to make my own.

  2. Just went & used their store locator (I’m in VT). The two nearest stores for me are in Michigan! :(

  3. It looks tasty but unfortunately these products are not available in the NY area…yet. :-(

  4. LOVE the Sweet Earth Seitan! It is a GO-TO in our house. Every Friday night is Taco Night and the Chipotle Ground Seitan is so gooood! Haven’t tried the Curry, but plan to, soon. Great Review, thanks !
