Slow-cooked Beets and Seitan with Red Wine Sauce


It's a rainy Saturday so I felt like making something fancy, by which I mean something with red wine. The beets are the Three-Orange Beets from Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker, a very favourite cookbook of mine, and they are cooked in orange juice with a touch of marmalade.

The seitan is a basic recipe, simmered and sliced, and the sauce is the Red Wine Roux from Veganomicon. I can't believe I had never made this sauce, it is delicious!!

I should really try to eat beets more often. They're one of those veggies that I often overlook.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and that you enjoy my food even if the astrology part wasn't your thing. Sometimes things can't be proven right or wrong, they're just feelings and thoughts, even if they're not always "prove-able" if that makes sense. Anyway your food looks great and comforting, have a good one!

Can't say I'm a big fan of beats. They taste too soily for me. Seitan on the other hand... Yum!
