MULTICEREALS’ PIE: KAMUT, QUINOA, BULGUR WITH SEITAN AND TOFU


MULTICEREALS’ PIE: KAMUT, QUINOA, BULGUR WITH SEITAN AND TOFU
Are in the right mood for a delicious dish as an alternative to the usual pasta?
Here is a tasty and a very quick recipe to prepare by a dear friend of mine: Claudia Vinciguerra.
The dish is delicious, in fact it has been eaten in a blink of an eye, even before being photographed! I promise, I will take some pictures before eating it, next time!
Here you are Claudia’s recipe.
INGREDIENTS:
  • A package of seitan (preferably, the natural one);
  • A package of tofu (naturally tasted, as well);
  • Quinoa and bulgur cereals (precooked are also good);
  • Kamut (also precooked);
  • Some bay leaves;
  • Vegetable cream;
  • Grated bread;
  • Salt (just enough);
  • Pepper (just enough);
  • Curry and/or other spices, of your choosing;
  • Olive oil (just enough).


HOW TO MAKE IT:
First of all, cook (in boiling and just enough salty water) some quinoa and bulgur together with seitan. All these ingredients (if precooked) have the same cooking time, that is around 10 minutes. A valid alternative to such cereals could be pearled barley. As the cereals are cooked, cut seitan and tofu into small chunks. Try to well drain the cereals (help yourself with a slotted spoon), Let them stand for few minutes in a bowl, adding some oil, some bay leaves, pepper and other spices. Put seitan and tofu in the mixture and try to well mix it up by adding some vegetable cream, as the mixture become uniform in colour and taste.
Cover a baking pan with a sheet of baking paper. Pour the mixture evenly in the pan. Then, sprinkle the pie with grated bread. You can garnish it with some drops of vegetable cream, if you prefer. Bake for about 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 degrees.
Enjoy it!
