Seitan Fajitas with Avocado-Yogurt Sauce
The creamy avocado and yogurt sauce gives this simple south-of-the-border meal extra flair. Look for whole wheat tortillas in natural food shops or gourmet stores.Menu plan: Serve with shredded romaine lettuce topped with spoonfuls of salsa. For a light dessert, serve wedges of mango sprinkled with lime.
- Cut seitan into 1/2-inch pieces. (You should have 1 1/2 cups.) In large, nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Add seitan and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 6 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Wipe out skillet. Heat remaining teaspoon oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Add garlic, red peppers and oregano and cook, stirring often, 5 minutes. Stir in broth and seitan and simmer until red pepper is tender, 3 minutes. Add scallions and salt and black pepper to taste. Stir 1 to 2 minutes more.
- In food processor, make sauce by combining avocado, yogurt, jalapeno, lime juice and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Process until smooth and creamy. Add cilantro and pulse to combine. Taste for salt and add more if necessary.
- Warm tortillas briefly in heated skillet. Serve tortillas mounded with seitan mixture and generous dollop of Avocado-Yogurt sauce.
