Vegan "Steaks", Garlicky Broccolini, and Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

For the weekend after Valentine's day, I made Sarah this feast:

The "steaks" were from Bryanna Clark Grogan's World Vegan Feast, and I made up a mushroom gravy to serve with them. The texture was pretty amazing - very much like veal - but  the flavor was pretty mild despite all the salty veggie beef boullion they were cooked in. The sweet potato fries were misted with oil, coated in a spice mix inspired by curly fries (salt, paprika, onion, garlic, black pepper, and cayenne pepper) and baked until crispy. The broccolini I just stir-fried with a lot of garlic that I had soaked in some good olive oil for a few hours. It was quite a meal.
