Homemade BBQ Seitan and TOSTADAS!

The cold, crunchy coleslaw atop the hot, sweet, saucy BBQ seitan makes this sandwich from Vcon a real winner! Because I had made the seitan and Backyard BBQ Sauce ahead of time this meal came together very quickly, which was good because the smell of the BBQ sauce had my mouth watering. Unfortunately, it started raining when I was making this sandwich, so the "summer BBQ" feeling was sort of ruined. But that really doesn't matter since it was so good! I'll just be sure to make sure it's nice and sunny next time I make this.

The only thing close to a tostada I've ever had was some sort of Mexican pizza I remember eating a lot as a kid, but after seeing a few posts featuring tostadas on the PPK boards a few weeks ago, I couldn't wait to make some! I baked some all natural blue corn tortillas that I found at the store and topped them with Amy's Refried Beans with Green Chiles, chopped lettuce and tomato, guacamole, FYH sour cream (this stuff is great! I've never tried Tofutti's sour cream, but I don't think I'll need to know that I have this!), and some chopped scallions. What a perfect lunch- I can't believe I haven't discovered how delicious tostadas are before now!

P.S.- I won't be able to post for a few days because I'm leaving for Wisconsin tomorrow. My cousin has been staying with my family for a few weeks now, so we decided to drive her home and make a road trip out of it! My family and I will be staying in Madison for (only :( ) a day because I've always wanted to go there and my cousin's older brother goes to school there so we can visit him as well. I've already got a few places I want to eat at picked out, so I'll try to squeeze them all in the short time I'll be in Madison and take lots of pictures! From there we'll be going to Winneconne, which is in the Oshkosh area, and we'll spend a few nights at my cousin's house. There aren't any vegan-friendly restaurants in that area, unfortunately, but I'll be fine since I'll have my cousin's kitchen there so I can cook some meals. I'll be home Tuesday, so I hope to post about my trip as soon as I can!

I skipped lunch today and soooo wish I had one of hose bbq seitan sandwiches right now. They sound so good! Plus I love being able to make a sauce ahead of time for a quick meal.

Hope you have a blast in Wisconsin! I have never set foot in that state, so I'll be interested to hear what you find!
