chipotle peach seitan

Honestly, I think this is the best thing we've made in a while. The photo doesn't do it justice. Sweet peaches and smoky chipotle are in perfect harmony. Slather on some garlic aioli and top with avocado and you've got yourself one hell of a sandwich! The kind of sandwich that makes you mumble "Damn, this is good!" while you've got a big bite of it in your mouth. Didn't your mother teach you not to talk with your mouth full?!

1 Tbsp olive oil
3 peaches, pitted and sliced into eighths
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
2 packages seitan, cut into thin strips
1/4 cup ketchup
1.5 Tbsp brown sugar
1/8 tsp liquid smoke

Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium-low heat. Add in the peaches and chipotles and cook until the peaches begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add in the seitan and stir until heated through. Next add the ketchup, brown sugar and liquid smoke and cover the pan. Allow to simmer for about 10 minutes until everything is hot and moist. (Ha! Hot & moist. I'm a 12 year old boy.) Toast your bread, spread on some garlic aioli or Vegenaise, top with the chipotle peach seitan and then with avocado. If you can resist, allow to cool slightly before devouring. Makes enough for 4 sandwiches, or ditch the bread and serve over rice.
