Vegan MoFo : Day 11 : Experiments
I cooked a huge batch of adzuki beans a few weeks ago and froze them. I was thinking of ways to use them up, besides just eating them with a big pile of greens, and thought they might be good in some seitan sausages. I hadn’t made them in a while, and wanted to experiment with some different flavors.
I also got some tatsoi in my organic delivery box. I think I’d spotted it in the international market, but I never picked it up. I thought it would go great with what I was planning for the sausages.
I decided to use up the carnival carrots I got as well. I was going to roast them, but I decided to do something a little more fresh and interesting, and made a sesame flavored carrot salad.
The sausages were okay, and definitely edible, but they just tasted like seitan, so I’m going to wait to share the recipe. I think I want to double the spices and try them out again.
The tatsoi was almost too pretty to cook, but it had to be eaten. I just sauteed the tatsoi with some ginger, garlic, red pepper, and a little extra carrot. I shredded the carrots and tossed them with a little sesame oil, garlic, ginger, agave, lime juice, and I accidentally used mirin instead of rice vinegar, which worked out really well, so I’d do it again!
