I have started a new veggie slow cooker blog that’s called Healthy Slow Cooking. I will be redoing all my slow cooker recipes from here and will be adding tons of new ones as well. Check it out if you get a chance.
Why all the seitan this week? Well, I made a big recipe of it from Post Punk Kitchen. I’m freezing some for later, but want to test it out in a few things. I used veggie broth instead of the soy sauce to cut down on the salt. I’ll let you know later if that was a good move or not. Never heard of it? It’s made from the gluten in wheat to produce a more “meaty” textured protein substitute. Check out more info here at Gourmet Sleuth or About.com.
Breakfast of the week: Kashi Heart to Heart cereal instead with unsweetened vanilla almond milk with banana or dried apricots
Sweet of the week: New to me banana bread – looks like an amazing recipe
Lunch Soup of the week: Slow Cooker Apple and Split Pea Soup (from the new blog)
Monday: Seitan Stroganoff with steamed broccoli
Tuesday: Garden-Fresh Stir-Fry with Seitan from eatingWell.com

Thursday: Celery Root and Caramelized Pear Soup and a big salad with roasted sweet potato, beets, goat cheese and pecans – possibly homemade bread
Friday: BBQ riblets with mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, carrots, and green beans
Saturday: Slow cooker veggie pot pie – will be a variation of something like this (will post recipe after I’ve made it and it is safe for others!)
