Daring Cooks-February Challenge-Mezze Platter

The 2010 February Daring Cooks challenge was hosted by Michele of Veggie Num Nums. Michele chose to challenge everyone to make mezze based on various recipes from Claudia Roden, Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Dugid.

The mandatory recipes for this challenge were homemade hummus and pita bread, and I chose to make roasted red pepper seitan and some pickled veggies. Actually, I already had made the pickled veggies in the summertime and just ate the rest of them with this meal. Mezze platters make me happy! For the seitan, I used the recipe for the Chorizo Sausages in "Vegan Brunch", but using garbanzo beans instead of pinto, and adding in the roasted red pepper at the end. I made a simple sauce of veganaise, dill, and a little soy milk to thin it out.


  1. Amazing Mezze and mouth watering photos! Excellent all around!

  2. Sounds delicious (I can never get enough of pickled vegetables myself), and the roasted red pepper seitan sounds really intriguing!

  3. I'm a sucker for pita bread and hummus... mostly hummus. This makes me happy! Thanks for posting such tasty photos :)
