Seitan Fajitas

1/2 lemon, juice
1 lime, juiced
olive oil
1 garlic clove
1-2 chipotles in adobo sauce, minced
a few tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 recipe of PPK Seitan, cooled. I added a little bit of cumin, lime juice, and a drop of adobo sauce added to the wet ingredients

1 pepper, sliced
1 onion, sliced
6 flour tortillas
homemade guacamole
tomatillo salsa, recipe follows
cilantro-jalapeno Sauce, recipe follows

Slice the seitan into long strips and mix it with the marinade. Set aside.

Fry the pepper and onions with olive oil in a grill pan until brown.

Remove the seitan strips from the marinade and grill them in oil in a grill pan until they start to brown. It might just be me but this part can be painful (must've been the chipotle) so turn on a fan, open a window, and stand back.

Combine everything in a tortilla and stick it on a grill (pan) until it gets those pretty grill marks.

Cilantro-Jalapeno Sauce

1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 small jalapeno
1/2 lb silken tofu
1 lime, juiced
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp salt

Blend it all together until creamy.

Tomatillo-Chipotle Salsa

5 tomatillos, halved
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 lime, juiced
1/2 chipotle pepper in adobo, chopped

Fry the tomatillos and garlic with olive oil on a grill pan until brown. Remove the garlic clove but save the oil. Chop up the tomatillo and blend it with the rest of the ingredients and the garlicky oil.
