Roast 15 minutes. Remove from the oven. Zucchini and carrots will probably take another five minutes. Mushrooms will be done. Remove them from tray. Stir other veggies and roast another 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.


For the seitan: Heat a small frying pan. saute the seitan with the cumin. Add slices of jalapeno pepper if desired. Saute until seitan is browned. Set aside.


For the guacamole: mash avocado in a small bowl with a fork. Stir in 1 tsp garlic aioli or other vegan mayonaisse. If you are not using the garlic aioli, add a sprinkling of garlic powder
Then add: 2 tsp tamari
1/4 cup salsa
combine well. Cover and set aside.


In a large bowl, place salad greens and toss with scallions, reserving 1 Tbsp for the top. Layer with rice, then seitan, then veggies, then guacamole. Dollop the remaining salsa and sprinkle the rest of the scallions on top.


Perfect comfort food for those who like some spice in their comfort.
