Ropa vieja has always been one of my favorite Cuban dishes and it's one of my go-to dishes to make for a dinner party since the slow cooker does most of the work for you. However when recently faced with coming up with a vegetarian version for a friend's potluck, I had no idea where to start. The dinner was a vegetarian Cuban themed get together and she was counting on me for a main dish. After lots of research, I found this delicious recipe from Robin Robertson and couldn't have been happier with the results. The seitan and mushrooms add a meaty texture and the spices and tomatoes round out the dish nicely. With some rice and plantains, it's the perfect Cuban meal.
