|Barley Miso Soup (with Seitan and Celery)|
2 cups water
¼ cup barley
1 tablespoon miso paste
¼ cup vital wheat gluten
¼ cup water
dash smoked paprika
2 stalks celery, diced
As you bring the water (2 cups), barley, and miso to a boil in a saucepan, combine the vital wheat gluten, water (¼ cup), paprika, and pepper to make the seitan; knead for 5 min and then separate into small pieces and add to the soup, along with the celery. Cover and simmer for about 1 hr, stirring occasionally.
|The leftovers the next day were better :)|
Here’s Cringer hiding under my bookshelf; I think she must have gotten scared by the vacuum cleaner; she usually claims sanctuary in the kitchen when I’m vacuuming, so I was surprised to find her here when I was done.
And here’s Daisy, who decided to join Leela in the sunshine. That’s about as close as Leela let her get, haha!
