Vegan MoFo Day 5 : Making Dogs & Sausages & Seitan!

Thank you all for your sweet comments on my embroidery & such yesterday. I feel like a 5 year-old showing my parents my scribbles – those first tentative steps towards art, and the encouraging words validating the effort…

Since some of you were asking about what recipes I use to make homemade doggies I thought this would be a great MoFo post :

I have been bursting at the seams to tell you’all about this seitan recipe which is the most amazing seitan I’ve ever made in my entire life! Sworn to not propagate “blogiddity”, mum was the word for her testers, until the super-cool Kittee posted this recipe for her Basic Gluten Log. Now you too can be in on the best (and easiest to make) seitan ever! I have a large three-tray steamer, and I make the log in that and it works just fine. I’ve made this a few times, and frozen it up for other meals – it’s really amazing.

He’re a really terrible, over-exposed picture of a sandwich, slathered in Dijon mustard!

One of our favorite ways to eat it is just to brown it up in a dry frying pan, but I have also made mini-logs, more like hot-dogs, and they are just too perfectly cool! It slices up really thin, so you can do so much with it! Kittee is so cool!

Another great seitan sausage recipe is of course Julie Hassons’s which is just yum, and let’s not forget Celine’s Fauxsausage – Celine is trop douée! too talented! Love her! I’m a hot & spicy kind of gal, but little Guppy, well, not so much, so I usually tone down the spices for her, and M. Fish and I drown things in mustard or hot sauce later.

So free yourself from buying soy dogs with lots of unpronouncables and preservatives and other random things. Yes, gluten needs to be used sparingly (or not at all by some), but once you start playing with your spices, you’ll find that you can make some really yummy home-cooked, homemade dogs! How liberating (and fun) is that?

  2. Yep, there is no reason to buy that prepackaged stuff. I love making my own sausage! I have tried both Julie’s and Celine’s.. now it’s time to try Kittee”s. Thanks for the link!

  3. What a coincidence, I made huge amounts of seitan on friday! Thank you so much for the inspiration.
    P.S. I am going to make cookies for you. No matter what :)

  4. It is hard to keep up with all this Vegan MoFo-ing! My Google Reader is so full right now!

    Anyway, I just read all of your posts that I’ve missed lately and wanted to just say that

    1) I hope your sinus infection is better. They never do seem to go completely away with the first round of antibiotics.

    2) Those raw banana bread bars sound delicous – thanks for that recipe!

    3) Pups in blankets from VeganLunchBox is such a fun recipe. I adore that dough and have used it for a few other things besides rollin’ up pups.

    4) Seriously, you and Hannah from Bittersweet both need to open Etsy shops.
