I don't think I've actually recommended this book here before (for shame!), but it really opened my eyes to a larger repertoire of vegan cooking. It's called Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, and it's fabulous really. I love her recipes, and her writing, she's funny, and pragmatic and spunky all at once. Recommended! In fact, her book was the first place I fell over seitan as a meat substitute, a package of which I've got languishing in the fridge passed its "due" date. But it's vacuum packed, so it should be okay still, right?!

You can follow her on Twitter too, @IsaChandra. She makes me laugh there too!

i'm afraid to ask how much you paid for the seitan! do you do tempe too?

40 kroner maybe? It was enough for 5-6 pitas with "shawarma" in it. Never done tempe! Been wanting to make a vegan/veggie version of a Reuben sandwich, substituting pastrami with tempe tho - where have you found it?
