Braised Seitan Stew with Plums
Grilled Romaine Salad
Foccacia with Cherry Tomatoes
The stew is basically a riff on our Seitan Osso Bucco recipe, with plums replacing the tomatoes. We seeded about a dozen plums, processed them in the vita-mix and ended up with about 1 cup of plum puree which was then added to the other braising ingredients (1 cup red wine, 1 cup veg stock). The result was nothing short of fantastic -- a nice balanced stew.
Liz saved half of the foccacia dough from last night, to make another batch tonight -- this time studded with sungold tomatoes from the farmers market. It's a visual and tasty treat.
