For the Rustic Mashed Potatoes:
1. Wash and remove eyes from potatoes. Do not peel. Cut into 1-2 inch cubes. In a medium sized sauce pan, bring potatoes and enough water to cover potatoes to boil (approximately 8 cups).
2. When the potatoes are soft (about 15 minutes), drain (you can keep this water for vegetable stock). Put the potatoes back into sauce pan. Add a couple of tablespoons of margarine or oil, 1/2 cup of rice, soy or almond milk and mash with potato masher (a pastry cutter also works well).
3. If the potatoes are too dry, add more margarine/oil and/or milk until desired consistency is reached. Add salt to taste.
For the Mushroom Gravy:
4. Clean and slice the mushrooms. In a sauce pan, cook the mushrooms and onions in water until soft – about 3-5 minutes. While this is cooking, whisk flour and 1 cup water or broth until smooth (pour the water into flour and whisk constantly).
5. Add the flour mixture, tamari and Italian seasonings to the mushrooms. Bring gravy to a boil and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring often.
6. If the gravy is too thick, add some of the remaining water or broth. Season.
For the Seitan Savory Cutlets:
7. In a large skillet or wok, heat 1-2 tablespoons of water. Cook the onions and mushrooms until onions are soft.
8. Add separated strips of seitan, tamari, spices, and water. Stir and cover. When seitan is heated, and liquid is nearly evaporated, it becomes ready to serve.
For the Steamed Green Beans:
9. Place the steaming basket and water in the pot or wok and bring to boil. Scatter beans in basket, cover and steam for 4-5 minutes. The beans should be bright green and slightly crunchy.

10. Plate everything together and serve warm.
