Seitan O'Goulash


Goulash was one of the few dishes my mother used to cook by herself (not with some ready-made spice mix), and she did it quite often so I adapted her recipe.

I've made it with TVP chunks so far, but tried some cubed Seitan O'Greatness with it and alas- it was good!

Seitan Goulash
(for 3-5 people)

1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, mashed
2 red bell peppers, chopped
1 tin chopped tomatoes
200g meat substitute of your choice

1 tsp vegetable broth
2 tbs tomato paste
1 tsp paprika
a pinch of cumin, salt and pepper
(some chili powder if you dare!)

In a medium saucepan, heat some oil and sauté the onions and garlic until transluscient.
Turn heat down a bit and add peppers, sauté for 5 minutes more, then the seitan (in this case). Add all remaining ingredients and let simmer for about 20 minutes.

I prefer it with pasta, but it's also good with potatoes in any variation and rice.

Seitan?? Where do you get the wheat gluten in Germany? I just moved to heidelberg a month ago, and I've not been successful in finding any yet. :-(

I haven't found it in stores yet, either. I order online... try www.veganwonderland.de or www.alles-vegetarisch.de -or even ebay!
