Vegetarian meat crumbles
Vegetarian meat crumbles are a nutritious protein source made from soy. Look for them in the natural foods freezer section.
“These stuffed cabbage bundles make a delicious alternative for the real thing, especially during meatless holidays,” writes Linda Evancoe-Coble of Leola, Pennsylvania. “They’re also a good source of fiber.”
Mixed with a blend of parsley, basil, oregano and bread crumbs, soy crumbles make a delightful addition to these savory stuffed mushrooms. Arline Aaron of Brooklyn, New York shares the recipe.
For a vegetarian chili that meat lovers would like, this recipe is healthy and tastes great. It takes just a few minutes to prepare, then the chili simmers in the slow cooker leaving me free to do something else. I top bowls with shredded cheddar cheese.—Connie Barnett, Athens, Georgia
