Seitan and Rice Pilaf with Sweet Paprika and Lemon

This is a delicious, one pot meal that we enjoyed today. It has been adapted from a traditional Greek recipe. It is so sad that people often eat lambs for holiday meals. This is a compassionate replacement that tastes really lovely.

Seitan and Rice Pilaf with Sweet Paprika and Lemon

Directions:

  1. Finely chop the onion and mince the garlic.
  2. Pull or slice the seitan into bite sized pieces.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet that has a lid.
  4. Place the chopped onions in the heated oil and sauté until glassy.
  5. Add the garlic and rice and mix well to evenly coat the rice.
  6. Add the 1/2 cup of white wine.
  7. Add 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1 cup of water or broth from the seitan and the bay leaves.
  8. Stir well and put a lid on the skillet.
  9. Slice the organic lemon and place about 5 slices of lemon on top of the cooking rice, place the lid back on.
  10. Turn the heat to medium low.
  11. As the rice begins to soften, add 1 more cup of liquid (water or wine or broth from the seitan). Add the  seitan pieces and a handful of parsley.
  12. When the rice is fully cooked and soft and the seitan has warmed, serve the meal, garnished with parsley.

Notes:

We make our own seitan from scratch and cook the it in a broth. This offers the opportunity to use the broth as a gravy. However it takes additional time. We often make the seitan the day before.
