Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Seitan

Dinner tonight was much better. It was a bit spicy, a bit sweet and a bit salty.

I found this over on Allrecipes.com and veganized it. Really very simple to do with this one; just use seitan, instead of chicken and replace the honey with agave nectar. And it also has my favorite vegetable and fruit in it as well, sweet potatoes and mango. I didn’t discover mangos till I came to Florida, but one bite and I was forever in love with them. Sweet potatoes I have always been in love with and could never get enough of them. However, I did not make it as spicy as it could be. Two tablespoons of the Tabasco Chipotle hot sauce was more than enough and I skipped the hot pepper flakes, they would have made it to hot for me. With the chipotle sauce, it was hot enough for my tastes. Oh, and I didn’t feel like cooking up any rice, so just had a warmed pita bread on the side.

  1. Your dinner looks really good. I LOVE mangoes too but I never put them in savoury things, maybe I should try it as they are everywhere at the moment.
