Cous-cous With Lemon

I've had a recipe for lemon couscous salad for a long time and today I decided to make it. It is basically vegetable broth, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper. In my opinion this is just the start of something. It's pretty bland all by itself but I think it has amazing possibilities. The lemon taste is not overwhelming so I think it would make a nice background for something.

I welcome your suggestions.

seitan and other meat substitute recipes?

I've been on a vegan sausage kick lately and I'm looking for other meat substitute recipes that include vital wheat gluten flour. Can someone recommend a good cookbook or website? I'm not vegan or even vegetarian (which is why my kitchen isn't stocked with tons of vegan cookbooks - only 4), but my husband is vegetarian and some friends are vegan so I enjoy vegan cooking.

I would especially like to find a mock duck recipe where I make the mock duck and not buy cans of it.

Chickpea, Tomato, and Corn Curry

Served today at a potluck-- It was a hit. A stuffy old man asked for the recipe. Personally, this is the only curry recipe I've ever tried-- and I can't get enough of it.

Got this recipe from:
http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=16849.0

but I modified it to my tastes and served my version at the potluck.

Enjoy! I know I did ^^

Mustard Greens

I want to know your favorite way to prepare mustard greens. I bought a big today at Dominick's and now I'm kind of at a loss. I know there are tags for kale, collard greens, etc. but I wanted to know if anyone had specific recipes. All the ways I can think of are like making a vegan mac n' cheese and tossing some in there, or it just being an added bit of delicious. But I kinda want a recipe that really makes the greens shine and be the center of the excitement. Thanks!
