Without Sweet Earth Natural Foods, I might not have eaten at all when I moved into my new apartment this summer.
Seriously, this burrito saved my sanity around 9:30 at night after a day of more stress and frizzling family tensions* when the frozen goodies I had long ago received made their final stop (after landing in Virginia, then Pennsylvania) in Alabama.
*Oh the joys of moving…
And this one saved my stomach the morning before we left for Georgia, when the only thing I’d managed to unpack were paper plates. [Thankfully, the former tenant left her microwave.]
Sister Smart and I most definitely wouldn’t have eaten so well on the road without this cooler, either.*
*Or the unsurpassably fantastic Chobani ice packs.
I am not even kiddingwhen I say that I have half a pack of Curry Seitan Satay strips left in my fridge, and I am postponing their consumption as long as possible because I love their product so much.
(I’ll make it to, oh, maybe tomorrow.)
I’ve made seitan many times before—I’ve even taught cooking classes about it–but this is by far the BEST I’ve ever eaten. The texture is perfect–not too chewy, but not too tough–and even the traditional version has a craveable flavor.
And no, I haven’t only eaten my own.*
*I had it in a restaurant. Once….
Sweet Earth Natural Foods has not only translated their incredible seitan into savory, quick-cooking burritos (surrounded by perfectly soft flour tortillas, not soggy in the least–even after cooking) but also veggie burgers that meet the hard to attain ‘almost like a real burger’ texture that holds up to cooking and doesn’t fall apart.
Unless you want it to, of course.
I am absolutely obsessed with both flavorful combinations of seitan, barley, and quinoa—
Hopefully they invite me back for a visit soon.
