Diner Style Skillet

This meal was amazing. Basically, its an awesome variation of the traditional diner style skillet you could find at any greasy old spoon except way better. There is a real hearty potato hash with a vegan omelet/frittata/scramble topped with some homemade vegan cheese. Try this dish anytime you have a hankering for something delicious and filling.

Diner Style Skillet

4 med russet potatoes, diced
1-2 sweet potatoes, diced
1 med onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 cups diced seitan or seitan sausage
3 tbsp tamari mixed with 2 tsps liquid smoke
3 tbsp oil
1 tbsp good chili powder
2 tbsp cumin
3 cups spinach or greens
black pepper

1 block of silken tofu
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
2-3 tbsp non-dairy milk
2 tbsp arrowroot
1 cup broccoli florets
1/4 diced onion
1 clove garlic
3/4 cup vegan cheese (that melts), sliced or shredded
4-5 green onions sliced thinly on bias
black pepper
oil to coat pan

For the hash
Start with the oil in a pan over medium heat and add the potatoes. Cover and let cook for a while. After about 5-10 minutes add the onions, garlic, seitan, smoke and spices. Let cook and get brown for about 5-10 minutes. Add the spinach to wilt and splash with tamari and season with salt and pepper. Serve trying to get a good mixture of everything. We also added some broccoli chunks in that we had on hand.

For the tofu

Blend all ingredients in the blender except brocolli, cheese and oil. After the mixture is smooth add brocolli and process until only small bite sized chunks are left. Heat a pan to get it real hot, add the oil, then add the mixture to the pan. After about 2 minutes turn the heat to low and cover. Cook for about 10-15 minutes. Add cheese. Let it melt or broil in the oven to get it browned on top. Tofu is ready whenit gets firm.
