corned seitan hash

I always have some seitan in the freezer - easy to do because when I make a batch, almost 1/3 does not get used in the recipe so into the freezer it goes. I got up this morning and put a bag of frozen saitan in a bowl of warm water. It was defrosted in about a half hour. Of course, you can use tofu, soy sausage, or a vegetable instead of the seitan. (We like to vary our diet and not have any one, soy or seitan, more than a few times a week.) I used raw potatoes, so there was no need to have them pre-baked and cooled. For the 'corned' part, I added ground pickling spice to the seitan when I sauteed it. I think it took about 20 minutes to make today's brunch. Oh, and the toast and jelly...a must.

Cost Breakdown:
seitan: $1
potatoes: $1.50
onion: $.50
toast and jelly: $2
broccoli: $3
Total to feed a family of 5:
