In her breathlessly anticipated new cookbook, Organs for Vegans, actress and Spanish food expert Gwyneth Paltrow offers this difficult-to-make and frankly not very tasty mélange of vegetable innards. "People are surprised when they learn that non-meat offal even exists," says the lithe blonde, who writes her own cookbooks. "But think about it: cabbage has heads, artichokes have hearts, so why shouldn't wheatgrass have a liver?" In addition to this unusual "sweetbread" and "liver" preparation, Paltrow offers recipes for such unexpected delights as Parsnip Spleen Croquettes, Kohlrabi Jowl Sliders with Chia Mayonnaise, and, for readers with a sweet tooth, an agave-syrup-sweetened Loquat Kidney Upside-Down Cake.
The rich flavor of porcini mushrooms, featured in both the stuffing and the sauce, is the hallmark of this elegant roast that makes a delicious centerpiece on your holiday dinner table.Note: To make your own porcini powder, place one or two dried porcini in a spice grinder and grind to a powder. Store any unused porcini powder in an airtight container, where it will keep for several months.Adapted from "Party Vegan" by Robin Robertson.
Bust out the barbecue sauce, 'cause it's officially summer! For non-meat-eaters, seitan is a great replacement. It's savory and the texture is much more pleasant than that of tofu. This sandwich is super easy to make and you can experiment with different toppings.

This is the seitan recipe I came up with after looking at two fairly popular recipes (http://vegandad.blogspot.com/2008/06/veggie-lunch-meat.html and http://www.postpunkkitchen.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=15959&p=1). This recipe makes a nice sized (7 to 8 inches I suppose) sausage like loaf and can probably be easily changed to your taste based on what spices you use. Note: if you want it to be more like the former recipe (like lunch meat) cook it longer (30-45 mins steaming, 45 mins baking), if you're looking for a nice ground beef substitute 30-35 mins steaming, then another 30-35 mins baking is better. I've used the longer cooked seitan in stuffing and the lesser cooked in dirty rice. Both were thoroughly enjoyed by all involved! I hope you enjoy it too!
