Jamaican vegan dinner

My Jamaican vegan dinner!

Jamaican vegan dinnerI made this dinner the other day as I love Jamaican food, but I wanted a vegan twist.

You need the following organic ingredients for this dish for 2 people:

*1 piece of seitan sliced into pieces

*2 plantains or bananas

*400 grams of brown rice

*1 can of black beans

*coconut flakes

for the “jerk” seasoning:

* 2 cloves of garlic

* 2 tablespoons of maple syrup

* 4 tablespoons of tamari

* half an onion

* a piece of fresh ginger as big as your thumb

* 1 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper

* 1 table spoon of dried thyme

* 2 table spoons of olive oil

* 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

* 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

* lemon juice

* a few leaves of fresh cilantro

*frying oil (I prefer coconut oil or tea oil)

How to make:

Grind all ingredients for the  “jerk” seasoning. (you can add ingredients for your own favorite flavor) Rub it on the seitan pieces. Let it sit for about 1 to 2 hours.

Rice and beans: Cook the rice and drain. Drain and rinse the black beans from the can (if you don’t rinse the beans you are more likely to get gas after eating.) Mix the drained & cooked rice with the black beans.

Plantain (or banana). this to add a sweet touch. Cut the plantain in slices of the size of your thumb. Put in a pan with enough cooking oil so you can fry them until they become soft. Sprinkle coconut flakes over it.

Seitan: drain the seitan from the jerk seasoning but keep the leftover. Grill the seitan in a pan until hot and tender. Add the seasoning at the end for a few minutes to heat up.

Serve hot. Add fresh cilantro, Enjoy!

Love, Lonneke
