Figures doesn't it ? I haven't been able to buy the Boca ground crumbles from the stores lately and I called Boca and the rep said that they had to discontinue the Boca ground crumbles , because they weren't selling well enough. They tasted pretty good and fit in with alot of pasta dishes and other meals.
Can anyone suggest a good mock ground beef substitute that you buy ? I don't like the Morning star brand of mock ground beef, it's pretty bland. I wish there were more of us to keep these products from being discontinued .
I kinda stopped using it since I prefer my spaggeti with just mushrooms and onions. I've never tried it but I hear TVP is a good ground beef sub (I imagine you'd have to season it up yourself.) Lentils are good in stuff like sloppy joes and tacos. For "meatballs", I like to use mashed beans.
That's weird...I just noticed our grocery store finally STARTED stocking it. I'll have to grab some next time I'm there. I hadn't gotten a chance to try them before. Might as well get a taste before they are gone.
I LOVE Morningstar Farms, it's all I buy in terms of crumbles. Nicole gave me the idea in her taco salad recipe to mix in taco seasonings with them. I always thought they were perfect as they were (ground beef isn't full of flavor really) as the other ingredients should take over in taste, but I REALLY like it with taco seasonings
I like Boca. One of my fav things beside veggies and tofu. I have been having problems finding the vegan burgers, and the vegan chicken nuggets and patties. I used to find them anywhere. So when I do see them, I stock up. I buy a boat load of them (I have a big chest freezer ). I have a boat load in my freezer, but when I see them now, I still stock up. It's a bummer that I have to do this, but s**t happens, I guess.
