Crispy Seitan Scaloppine Piccata

I can't believe it has taken me this long to post this recipe for you. Carlos and I both grew up eating breaded crispy scaloppine, and when I made this recipe for the first time we couldn't believe how much it resembled the traditional one made with meat (not that it has to, I’m just saying it will make you have childhood flashbacks, Ratatouille-food-critic style).

This seitan scaloppini is meaty, chewy, crispy, high in protein and so filling, and the sauce just takes it to a whole other level. Carlos and I have to fight over the leftovers whenever I make these, and he will kill me if I don't tell you that the scaloppine on their own makes for the perfect sandwich filling. I know you will absolutely love this one and so will the meat eaters in your life (this is my mother in law's favorite, and she's as hardcore carnivore as they get). I recommend making it with some mashed potatoes on the side, it's just divine when you get to pour the lemon caper sauce on top of everything.

In this video I also give you my go-to technique for making anything that is breaded, with an egg substitute that includes only two ingredients that you probably already have in the house.

Hearty Holiday Entrées that are not the Classic Vegan Roast

You know me and my hearty holiday vegan roasts, I simply love them. Whether they're store-bought, made with seitan, our lentil and mushroom holiday roasts, nut roasts, mushroom roasts, etc, I love feeling that there's a traditional hearty main entrée in the center of the table. Since most of our friends and family who come over for Thanksgiving and Christmas aren't vegan, I always love to serve something that will seem familiar. It's why when non-vegans come over and they see this giant platter of perfectly sliced seitan roast with mushroom gravy slathered all over it they get VERY excited! Now we even have ready made roasts from brands like Tofurky, Gardein and Field Roast which even come with their own gravy and all you have to do is heat them up, cook up some sides and you have a perfect holiday meal.

What if however, this year you wanted to make something different. What if, you live in an area where these products aren't as readily available and you want to create something hearty, using simple staples you can find at the grocery store? What if you don't have the time this year to make big holiday roast from scratch? What if you simply want to mix things up and surprise your guests with something different this year? Today's episode and post is all about those hearty vegan main dishes you can make when you want to skip the classic vegan roast.
