Setian Souvlaki with Pita & Hummus and Salad

Rating: 4.25

A few weeks ago, we made a batch of Robin Robertson’s Seitan Souvlaki. The recipe was in the 10th Anniversary Edition of VegNews. It makes more seitan than just the two of us can eat, so I put half of it in the freezer. I was so happy with how it came out, I wanted to have it again sooner than I thought I would. I went ahead and made a full batch of the marinade so that I could be sure it would all get nicely coated, and because I wanted to give the veggies a nice marinade bath, too. I let it soak for about an hour, but really the seitan and veggies just need to be tossed with the marinade. We don’t have anywhere to grill outdoors, so I just used the grill pan. At first I put it on these awesome flexible wire skewers we have, but it was too hard to get everything in there and actually touching the pan, so I took it all off and just “free-form” grilled. The veggies we had were bell pepper, red onion and grape tomatoes. It was just as delicious the second time around as it was the first. I thought about making some rice to go with it, but I had a last minute craving for hummus. So I bought some. I know, I know. Who buys hummus when it’s so stupid easy to make? This gal, that’s who. But only when I’m having a humus emergency. We had a little bit of pita on hand, so I warmed it up for a few minutes so it would be all soft and yummy. We also made a side salad to go with it (extra olives!) and I whipped up a quick vinaigrette with an added dash of lemon juice for some zing. OPA! Then we raced out the door and went to see “Song of the Living Dead” a musical about zombies that was playing in Little 5 Points (L5P for all you ATLiens). It was awesome. Seriously, you should support local arts – sometimes you find little treasures.
