What's for dinner (I know, I'm super early)

Posted by   + Show Post

I think we are going to have this stir fry except with chicken since I'm cooking for my neighbor too:

Glazed Seitan Stir-Fry

Glazed Seitan Stir-Fry

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Have all ingredients chopped and ready, and keep them in constant motion over high heat while cooking so they get crisp on the outside and stay tender inside.
Glazed Seitan
  • 3 Tbs. maple syrup
  • 3 Tbs. orange juice
  • 1 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 12-oz. pkg. seitan, shredded
Stir-Fry
  • ¾ cup cashews
  • 1 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into ¼-inch strips (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 Tbs. minced ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 Tbs.)
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 6 Tbs. orange juice
  • 1 Tbs. arrowroot powder

1. To make Glazed Seitan: Combine syrup, juice, and soy sauce in small bowl.

2. Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add seitan, and stir-fry 4 minutes, or until golden. Add maple syrup mixture, and simmer 3 minutes, or until seitan is coated with glaze. Transfer to bowl. Wipe out skillet.

3. To make Stir-Fry: Toast cashews in dry skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes, or until fragrant. Transfer to bowl. Heat 1 Tbs. sesame oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and edamame, and stir-fry 2 minutes.

4. Move vegetables to sides of skillet, and pour remaining 1 tsp. oil in center. Add ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes, and stir-fry 1 minute. Stir in 2 Tbs. water, Glazed Seitan, and cashews. Cover, and cook 2 minutes, or until pepper is tender.

5. Combine orange juice and arrowroot powder. Stir into vegetable mixture. Bring to a simmer, then remove from heat, and serve.

Mashed pirates are my favorite.

Quoting raczac:

Roast, mashed pirates, gravy, corn and g beans.

Much better than baked pirates, and healthier than fried.

Chicken noodle soup for us lol my mom has the flu, I'm 8 weeks pregnant with a sinus infection and my daughter has a double ear infection, sinus infection and start of strep throat. Oh and my brother had a viral lung infection which they think is more like whooping cough. So yeah chicken noodle soup is definitely for dinner.

Wow. :( Hope you all get to feeling better.

we can't have seafood now. thankfully only one child likes it.

Quoting SparklePants:

Tilapia.

I generally don't eat any seafood but I'm trying. I don't want my kids to be picky eaters and I can't tell them to eat something that I myself wouldn't even try you know?

Wish me luck!!!

Marinated pork tender loin will be broiled and served over white rice with a mustard shallot cream sauce that will be on the asparagus as well. Haven't decided if I'm going to do yeast rolls or the rest of the French bread.

Baked tilapia and something else. I haven't decided if I want to attempt a vegetable stir fry with hoisin sauce or just do rice and beans.
