Chicken Fried Seitan, Mashed Potatoes and 40 Cloves Chickpea and Broccoli

This post is part dinner part school lunch.

Last night was not the perfect night to make a big dinner with 3 different parts to it. It was a Monday. Reno had school, homework and dance which we didn’t get home until 6:30. Miles didn’t nap. I made the Chickpeas and Broccoli earlier in the day and that was going to be our dinner with some type of potatoes. When we got home from dance I decided to make some mashed potatoes and use up the rest of my homemade seitan. It was a longer process then I really want to do on a busy Monday night but it was worth it in the end. It was a lovely meal and I got my now picky eating son to eat the seitan!!! I was so excited. I was sure he was just going to eat the broccoli for dinner and nothing else. He won’t even eat mashed potatoes anymore and this is coming from a kid who would shove handfuls of kale into his mouth. Oh well.

Reno Lunch tomorrow: mashed potatoes, chicken fried seitan strips, ketchup, nectarine, grapes. #vegan #planetbox

Last nights dinner turned into today’s lunch for my daughter. She was so excited about the mashed potatoes that I gave her that as her “main” food group for lunch today. Along with a few pieced of the seitan with way to much ketchup to dip them in. Some really amazing nectarine slices and green grapes which we really need to use up. I think I need to work the rest of the grapes into dinner tonight. They gotta go!

    I’m a new seitan convert. I LOVE this stuff. Love it. I can’t wait to try this recipe – sounds like it’d make a great topping for salads! Definitely will be checking out how to make it at home!
