i have a serious brain disease. please bring me a cat.

Everyone loves cube food

I have many pieces and parts of food around but no planned meals. I know a lot of people roll that way every day, but it’s very unlike me. I plan out what I’m going to eat for a week, go to the store and get ingredients, and repeat in a week. But Thanksgiving threw things off. I haven’t quite recovered from braving the DeKalb Farmer’s Market pre-holiday crowds. Noobs.

So time to improvise. Here’s what I came up with:

Seitan O’ Greatness Hash

1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 medium yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1 cm cubes (yeah, I used metric, sue me)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup Seitan O’ Greatness, cut into 1 cm cubes
Salt & pepper to taste

Heat up oil over medium high heat in a saute pan. Add onions and fry for a minute or so. Add potatoes and turn heat down to medium. Cook stirring from time to time until potatoes are almost done. Add garlic, bell pepper, seitan, salt and pepper and continue cooking until potatoes are done. Note, I didn’t need any pepper because I used the higher amount when making the Seitan O’ Greatness. Also, the seitan is totally optional. Makes 2 big portions. I ate mine with a big pile of green beans.

Seitan O' Greatness Hash

Anyway, that’s about as close to a recipe as you’re going to get out of me. Well, unless I veganize the chocolate doughnut recipe that came with my pan for the Holiday Bake Off at Cosmo’s Vegan Shoppe.


  1. Very nice use of the log-o-non-meat. It's very similar to something I made last week with another type of maybe-not-quite-meat that comes from a can and you wouldn't touch :)

    I'd eat this though… I think I'd want to cheese it. But that's just me.

    Nice food pictures lately.


  2. Yay, another entry! whew.
    And I have yet to make the seitan o' greatness. What the hell is wrong with me?

    grant, i wouldn't touch what you're referring to when i did eat meat. ;-) yeah, who doesn't like the onion, garlic, potato trifecta? once you have those, you can really throw a little bit of whatever else you feel like.

    seriously, leigh, what are you waiting for??? other than a long baking time, it's stupid quick to make. i froze a chunk that i see making a reappearance in a spaghetti sauce in the future. and i'll fill out the bake-off entry as soon as i actually, completely settle on something. i thought i was going to do one thing, then i saw ina garten make these orange chocolate chunk cakes, then i landed on doughnuts. the doughnuts are sort of sticking though…
