I think what I have been enjoying most about Spencer’s Market is that I get to try new vegan products that I would have never otherwise have taken notice of Also thanks to the 20+ folks who have joined using my referral and landing me some free shipping!! After trying these cool products, I typically realize that I can also find the them at a local store.
This time I was excited to try some MimicCream. I was so pleased with the unsweetened version of this product that I am busting right into my busy marathon training schedule to share a recipe I veganized with it.
(Vegan Indian Seitan in Tomato Cream Sauce)
3 tablespoons Earth Balance stick
1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (14 1/2 oz) can diced tomatoes in juice
1 (6 oz) package of chicken-style seitan
1 (10 oz) box frozen peas, thawed
2/3 cup Unsweetened MimicCream
Melt the Earth Balance in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until the pieces just begin to turn gold, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, tomato paste and spices, and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly to prevent burning. Add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes and stir well. Add the seitan pieces, spoon the sauce over the top and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat to low and cook, uncovered, until the seitan is warmed through, about 10 minutes. Stir frequently.
