Portfolio diet directive: replace meat with soy substitutes
Tweaking a family recipe for a French Canadian style Sheppard's pie, turning to TVP flakes that I reconstituted with beef bouillion
I mixed it 50-50 with some lean ground beef that was sauteed with 1/2 of a medium onion. I also added a bit of salt, a generous amount of freshly cracked pepper as well as onion powder, the dregs of a bottle of Worcestershire sauce. A sample taste tells me that it should be ok, the texture is OK.
I will be baking off the dish in a while, serving it with some fresh, organic cherry tomatoes. This came out really good, slightly different, but that is to be expected.
Leftover chocolate-banana bread for dessert seekers.
