I wasn’t in the mood to cook anything time consuming this evening so I decided to assemble a simple dish. I’ve noticed that I haven’t been wanting to cook at night lately, how strange! I might change up tomorrow’s dinner plan and have a burger 😛
For Dinner tonight, I created Confetti Couscous with Grilled Seitan and Green beans.
Whole wheat couscous, raw red peppers, fresh mango, a little cilantro, and black beans. I tossed in 1 tbs of Annie’s Goddess dressing. The dressing gave this fresh dish a great kick and really enhanced all the flavors.
A side of Canned Green Beans. After last night’s fresh green beans, these were not that good! And call me crazy but I swear I could taste the high sodium content.
Grilled Seitan Cutlet. I took one of my cutlets I made yesterday and grilled it on my grill pan! I loved the flavor and believe it or not, it got even firmer and chewier. So, so good! Seitan is my new favorite and will become a Vegans Eat staple!
Dinner came in at 567 calories, 36 grams of protein, and 15 grams of fiber!
I hit my calorie goals for the third day in a row thanks to this big dinner! I didn’t think it was that big when I was cooking… kind of funny how things work out! Well, I have a Current Event to write, a Stats tests to study for, AND the Biggest Loser Season Finale! I haven’t watched TV in over a week so I am excited to sit down and relax.
