Preparation

For the Rustic Mashed Potatoes:

Wash and remove eyes from potatoes. Do not peel. Cut into 1-2 inch cubes. In a medium sized sauce pan, bring potatoes and enough water to cover potatoes to boil (approximately 8 cups).

When the potatoes are soft (about 15 minutes), drain (you can keep this water for vegetable stock). Put the potatoes back into sauce pan. Add a couple of tablespoons of margarine or oil, 1/2 cup of rice, soy or almond milk and mash with potato masher (a pastry cutter also works well). If the potatoes are too dry, add more margarine/oil and/or milk until desired consistency is reached. Add salt to taste and serve warm.


For the Mushroom Gravy:

Clean and slice the mushrooms. In a sauce pan, cook the mushrooms and onions in water until soft – about 3-5 minutes. While this is cooking, whisk flour and 1 cup water or broth until smooth (pour the water into flour and whisk constantly).

Add the flour mixture, tamari and Italian seasonings to the mushrooms. Bring gravy to a boil and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring often.

If the gravy is too thick, add some of the remaining water or broth. Season and serve warm.


For the Seitan Savory Cutlets:

In a large skillet or wok, heat 1-2 tablespoons of water. Cook the onions and mushrooms until onions are soft. Add separated strips of seitan , tamari, spices, and water. Stir and cover. When seitan is heated, and liquid is nearly evaporated, serve.


For the Steamed Green Beans
:

Place the steaming basket and water in the pot or wok and bring to boil. Scatter beans in basket, cover and steam for 4-5 minutes. The beans should be bright green and slightly crunchy. Serve warm.

Additional Tips

* Garlic may be added to the mashed potatoes for more zing. Just throw 1-2 peeled cloves into the pot when the potatoes are boiling.

For home made seitan see the How to Make Seitan video.

Use any combination of potatoes you want – purple, red, yellow, white, sweet, yams, etc.
