Michael Vegetarian "Ground Beef" by Boutell.Com

Category: Main Dishes - Other

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.



1/2 cup TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein)

1/2 teaspoon sage

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon vegetarian oyster sauce (optional)

Salt and pepper

1 3-inch stick of Kombu (a type of dried seaweed; look in the asian section of your supermarket)

2 teaspoons olive oil

2 cups water



Combine ingredients in a small saucepan. Simmer until the liquid is almost gone; make sure it lasts at least half an hour to hydrate the veggie protein. Extended simmering also allows the Kombu to flavor the stock and improve the digestibility of the veggie protein, which I find to be (ahem) very important!

Use with pasta sauce for a rich vegan "meat" sauce, or try it in an alternative vegan "chopped steak" sandwich.
