torta de seitan y frijoles negros con aguacate y queso

This is awesome. A Mexican sandwich with all the fix-ins.

torta de seitan y frijoles con aguacate y queso
good sandwich bread, preferably a baguette
black beans, heated and seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
2 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
olive oil
salt and pepper
1 cup of seitan, sliced thinly
a few slices of vegan cheese (FYH monterrey jack)
1 avocado, sliced
lime juice
a couple tomatoes, sliced
olive slices
shredded lettuce

This is really easy to put together. Just start by caramelizing your onions in some olive oil and garlic then after a bit add some salt and pepper. Then add your seitan. Get that nice and crispy. Season with some cumin and paprika. Once that is ready take your bread and hollow it out a bit so it can hold all the fillings. Add the seitan and beans and cover with slices of cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted and the bread is a bit crisp. Top with the rest of the junk and enjoy it.

the fix-ins
ready for stuffing

then it was eaten.and that was that.
