Know Your Roots

Long, long ago back in May 2008, I blogged about a new creation for my cookbook — Seitan Root Veggie Pot Pie:

It was everything I love — hearty winter root veggies and tender morsels of "chicken-ish" seitan — stuffed between two flaky whole wheat crusts. The perfect comfort food.

But that original recipe needed a few improvements, namely I'd made way too much filling for one pie. In in an effort to perfect the measurements in the recipe, I finally tried it again last night. The result was a perfect pie, filled with just right amount of sweet potatoes, white potatoes, turnips, carrots, and seitan.

I am so scared of buying new root veggies, but I really want to try them! Turnips, beets, and the like: why don't I make them?! I think I need to make myself start the new food challenge again.

Maye if I had you to cook for me...

Yeah, I'm ready for the cookbook today! I've got turnips and sweet potatoes galore still waiting for me to do something with them, from the farmer's market. Hmmmm.....

I'm so happy i found your blog. I'm from the south as well and trying to transition back to a vegan diet and i love me some comfort food.

That looks delicious!

Oh, and about the kong toy...I really think the black one's a good bet. Rupert is probably the most intense, destructive dog I've ever known, and he's had that black kong forever. I would def recommend it for Datsun. If he breaks it quickly, you can always return it for false advertising. We've returned many a lesser toy to Petco for that very reason. But I think the black kong is a good bet!!
