This looks like meat but it's Vegie ground round.
One for dinner and one for the freezer.
While I cooked, Audrey stopped to smell the geranium.
This vegie pie (a meal in itself) is very good but be sure to have some time set aside to make it. I did the crust from scratch so that adds a little extra time but it was worth it.
The retired-guy loves his meat but he raved about this pie.
Then he mentioned something about men shouldn't eat soy products because there is too much estrogen in them. I think he was worried he may never see meat again.
Here's the recipe...
Pre-cook your bottom pie crust.
Saute 1 med.onion, 1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms and 1 pkg. of Yves Vegie Ground Round.
in frying pan.
Chop 2 large carrots, 2 med. potatoes & 2 sticks of celery. Pre-cook using a large pot.
Add the vegie mixture.
Add 1/2 cup each of frozen corn and peas.
Add 1 cup of tomato sauce.
1/4 cup of sugar
As much basil, oregano & cumin as desired.
(I doubled this recipe and put 1/2 teaspoon of each)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. soya sauce
1/2 cup water
Bring this to a slow boil
Add 1/4 teaspoon of cornstarch
This should be a stew consistency
Pour this into a pre-cooked pie shell
Put top layer of pie-crust over this making a hole in the center of the dough.
Cook 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
I photographed this guy once before but today he actually posed for me.
When my dog passes a mirror, this is what he sees.
