Maybe you can serve the seitan with some stir fried Asian greens (bok choi or something) with a little soy sauce and garlic? Something like this recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/chicken-with ... fry-351039 Or some green beans or sugar snaps coated in a soy sauce glaze and sprinkled with sesame seeds?

I'm testing recipes for a vegan kickstart program, and one of the recipes is veggie burgers made from veggies, mashed potatoes and a little flour. I have never understood the pure veggie burger. If your veggies come in burger shape, what kind of protein should you serve along side? I have some sausages in the fridge. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I feel weird eating burgers and sausages in the same meal. Help me PPK!

You guys looking for protein sides with pasta, you ever smoke mushrooms? Not in a bong or anything but like on the grill with woodchips. Skewer them first and they'll be way easier to handle.

Lentils? Lentil salad maybe? Or some other legume thing.

Good call about the legumes. Maybe some baked beans, breakfast for dinner style.

I made a farro & roasted beet salad for dinner tomorrow.

-it calls for feta, which my husband will add to his. What should I sub in my serving? I don't really have time to marinate tofu or anything.
-what else should we serve with the salad?

Thanks!!

Some sort of bean or nut? Chickpeas, white beans, pine nuts, brazil nuts would all be nice.

I was going to suggest olives to replace the fatty salty element of fetta, but white beans would replace the creamy texture, and walnuts also sound like a good option. Add all 3!

Personally, I'd go for a green, like whichever Asian green looked freshest at the store, or maybe green beans.

I can imagine a grilled (or broiled) summer squash with a light vinaigrette being good with that.
