Welcome to my blog!
Welcome to my blog: Praise Seitan! Vegetarian Cooking From My Seattle kitchen. Here I will share recipes, anecdotes from my travels around the country and the world and my favorite food, drink and grocery spots in my hometown. I'm a Seattle, Washington native and have been a vegetarian for most of my life. The primary mission of this blog is to show you that vegetarian cooking is anything but boring, and is about more than just tofu. The way I do it, it's bold, daring, exciting and jam-packed with flavor in every bite. It's about fresh produce from local sources, full-flavored spices and lots of fresh herbs. And it's all healthy and friendly to the environment, to boot!
Praise Seitan! is named for my favorite meat substitute, seitan or wheat gluten. But this blog is about more than just replacing meat. It's about letting vegetables play vibrantly with herbs, sauces, grains and spices. It's about sampling all the fascinating flavors and textures the world has to offer. And most importantly, it's about stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new. All hail our vegetable overlords, and enjoy my site!
