i generally buy already to use crumbles that are made from [email protected], but to my understanding you must soak [email protected] in water to rehydrate it.

first thing that came to mind is shepards pies (someone mentioned it on a different thread.

1/2 pd. crumbles or vegan sausage( i use half and half)

1 can green beans (14.5 oz.) (you can use any veggies these are our favs for this dish).

1 can corn

1 can black eye peas

1 can diced tomato

1/4 cup all purpose flour

1 sm onion chopped

1/2 tsp. garlic granules

1 tsp. each dried oregeno & bazil

1/4 tsp. dried thyme

1/4 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. pepper

1/4 cup vegetable broth

also i really never measure the seasoning, so you should do it to taste.

Directions:

-saute "meat", onion, & garlic in oil till lightly browned

-add oregeno, basil & thyme

-add flour, vegetable broth (in that order)

-stir constantly till flour covers "meat"

-add tomatoes, green beans, corn, black eye peas, salt & pepper

-spoon mixture into a casserole dish

Mashed pototoes recipe - there are several vegan instant mash potatoes out there or you can make from scratch.

-Top the "meat" mixture with the mashed potatoes in a casserole dish.

-Bake at 375 degrees for 20 mins. / broil for 5 mins. careful not to burn top.

ENJOY!!!

You need to rehydrate TVP (textured soy protein.) but though it has no flavour, it does replace the texture of ground beef very well. To get a taste out of it, soak it in veg. stock before you use it. It will absorb some of the flavour.

Anyway, this may be a simple recipe, and I did adapt it from how my sister makes spag bol, but if you like spaghetti bolognese, then this should help:

However, I've always hated cheese, so I have no idea how to make a vegan parmesan, so you'll have to research that one if you like spag bol w/ parmesan.

I like to throw a handful of the dry TVP flakes into a sauce to add more texture. Well, I usually add more than a handful, depending on how much sauce I'm making! This is good for spaghetti sauce, Skyline Chili sauce (instead of the "normal" ground beef).
