I’m really excited to give you a sneak peek into Miyoko Schinner’s new book, The Homemade Vegan Pantry. We loved her Unrib recipe at our house! (Disclaimer: I organized the blog tour for The Homemade Vegan Pantry and received a complimentary copy of the book. However, I was not paid to write this post and all the opinions are truly my own.)
There are a few steps, so it’s a great weekend project. First you mix the seitan dough in your food processor. Second you cut and shape it into 4 long pieces and brown it in a large saute pan.
If the saute pan is large enough, and can go into the oven, you can then cover with BBQ sauce and bake for 90 minutes, until the sauce thickens and the seitan cooks. After that cools enough to cut it, cut into smaller strips and saute in a little more BBQ sauce.
Easy, right? It does take some time, but I whipped them up last night and have enough in the freezer to have them for 2 future dinners too. Trust me, it’s time well spent. I want to try the same recipe with a Thai saute sauce and then maybe a Korean BBQ sauce.
These are going to be on the menu plan all summer long!
Miyoko’s book is full of my favorite kind of recipes – staples. There are condiments like vegan oyster sauce, vegan fish sauce and everyday vegan necessities like mayo, dressings, and jams.
It also includes vegan subs for milk, cream, butter, and cheese. There are DIY stocks for every soup, homemade tofu, tempeh and various types of seitan. Learn to make your own pasta, pasta sauces, breads, baking mixes, and so much more.
There’s a little something for everyone in this book and I encourage you to at least take a peek on Amazon or flip through it at your local store. It’s a beautiful book with recipes that will have you making all your favorite staples from scratch.
