Vegetarian Southern Food

Seitan Ribz, Watermelon Pickles, Baked Cauliflower and Cheese
The only contribution to this meal I made was those watermelon pickles I made back in September, but apparently never followed up on.

Well, they're good. Kind of like eating an Arnold Palmer (i.e. 1/2 lemonade and 1/2 iced tea). If you never had them (I hadn't) then I definitely recommend it. While I admit to being a little intimidated by the idea that a rind could ever end up as something tasty... no matter the pickle alchemy applied... this definitely made me a believer.

Otherwise what you see was made by Anna. Up front are a seitan based "rib" creation (from Vegan Diner), and in back is a riff on baked mac and cheese that subs in cauliflower for the pasta. Both were delicious.

UPDATE: Added links to the recipes.
