Vegan MoFo #1: Savoury Seitan Pie

It’s an absolutely gorgeous day outside today at our house. It started off being pretty cold, but it’s pleasant out now, and GooGoo and Mr Pine Nut are out doing things like grinding up food refuse to feed the garden while I have a lot of other things going. Today I made homemade laundry soap, the powdered kind, because I needed it immediately and didn’t have time to wait for the liquid kind to gel overnight. I had an astonishingly small amount of laundry today – only two loads!

And then after I got the laundry going, it was time to make tasty MoFo food. GooGoo wanted to help.

Little girl cooks!

Savoury Seitan Pie

Savoury Seitan Pie fresh out of the oven

This recipe was originally “Savoury Beef Pie”, found on page 14 of the 1978 Betty Crocker cookbook.

1/4 – 1/2 c chopped onion
2 T chopped green pepper
2 T oil
2 cups beefy seitan (I used my mother-in-law’s gluten steak recipe, chopped it into cubes and stirred up with 1 T of Bill’s Best Beaf seasoning)
10 oz frozen mixed veggies
1 c “beef” gravy of your choice (here’s the gravy recipe I used)
1/4 c water

Cook and stir onion and green pepper in oil until tender with seitan chunks. Add veggies, gravy, and water; heat until hot (about 5 minutes).

Preheat your oven to 450 and pour the above mixture into ungreased 8×8″ or 12×7.5″ pan and set aside.

Prepare Sesame Drop Biscuits:

1/3 c vegan margarine
1 c white flour
3/4 c whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c non-dairy milk
2-4 T sesame seed

Combine flours, baking powder, and salt. Cut in margarine until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in milk just until soft dough forms (it will be sticky). Drop dough by 12 spoonsful onto casserole and sprinkle with sesame seed.

Bake uncovered at 450 for 15-20 minutes, until biscuits are light brown.

And then you eat it.

Mr Pine Nut and I were both very happy with the way this came out and it’s definitely one I’m going to be making again. I used just peas as my veggie, because I didn’t have mixed veggies on hand, but you could really use any kind of veggie. Corn and carrots would make for a vibrant pop of colour. You could even use chopped-up cabbage, so there are lots of variants you could try. It was really yummy. We decimated the entire pan here for lunch and GooGoo even ate some.
