#VeganMoFo Day 14: Chim Chiminey, Chim Chimichurri

For today’s ONE COLOR challenge, I cooked an all-green dinner. Look, I know there is a SIMILAR prompt on the 20th, but I am gonna go with the OTHER meaning of “green” then. Stay tuned.

My all-green platter includes: green seitan, kale, avocado, chimichurri, pepitas, and jade green rice.

How do you make seitan green? Take the steamed white seitan recipe from Viva Vegan, blend the 1 ½ cups of broth with a handful of spinach plus herbs (I used basil and cilantro), and violà! Green – well, olive greenish – seitan. It’s nice and dense and flavorful.

How do you make chimichurri? Throw a bunch of stuff in a blender and be happy. Stuff includes cilantro, parsley, garlic, onion, jalapeno, red wine vinegar, and olive oil. It manages to stay a nice bright green.
