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!!

Recipe roundup!

This week I made this carrot gnocchi recipe from Vegan for the People:
It was really good and I will definitely make it again. I made some kind of creamy cashew sauce to go with them, not pesto, but I can't remember what was in it..

I also made this super simple but AMAZING split pea soup from 101 Cookbooks:
I prefer yellow split peas to green but I had some green, so I used half green and half yellow. I make split-pea soup about once a week when the weather gets cold, and I usually add carrot and potato and other things, but I like the simplicity of this recipe.

I made raw pasta sauce last night based on this recipe from Ani Phyo:
I liked it. It would have been better if I had added the basil but I didn't have any.

I plan to make this roasted sweet potato dish:

and I can't believe I haven't made this yet:

Any comments on these recipes? Which online recipes have you tried lately and which ones are on your to-make list?

Raw Chocolate Caramel Cake

This is my new favourite dessert recipe- and it is from the cookbook Raw for Dessert by Jennifer Cornbleet. It is the chocolate lava cake recipe but the caramel variation, and without a top - I used the extra chocolate "cake" to make more little cakes instead. Yum yum yum.
