Spaghetti a'la Mycoprotein
1 Bag of MorningStar Farms® Meal Starters™ Grillers® Recipe Crumbles™
(found in the freezer section at smiths in the vegetarian option area)
4 cans of tomato paste
2 cans diced tomato, garlic, basil
2 bay leafs
4 cloves of garlic, not bunches just the cloves
2 large golden onions
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
(we're going to cheat on this due to the fact that you don't have many spices in the house)
4 packets of Spaghetti spice powder in the flavour packet section at Smiths, doesn't matter the brand.
7cups of water
2 tablespoons butter but if going vegetarian route throw the country crock in there
1 in a big pot place the water, tomato sauce (6oz cans) the diced tomato, garlic, basil (a del monte product I believe), the bay leaves, and the butter
Put the heat on low->medium
Chop the onions, the peppers, garlic
add all of this to a saucepan containing a couple tablespoons of olive oil
under medium heat cook the onions and peppers until the onions are a bit clear
add the mycroprotein meat and reduce the heat. This is so that the crumbles absorb the flavour of the onions garlic and peppers.
add all of this to the spaghetti sauce after about 5 minutes
Simmer the sauce for about 20 minutes on low heat, it should bubble a bit but we don't want it to burn.
Prep your noodles and away you go.
For the horrible for you Garlic bread
don't bother cleaning that pepper/onion saucepan just wipe it out and throw a cube of butter and 3 finely chopped cloves of garlic
heat up the butter by 2 tbs each and grab a package of sandwich or Hogie rolls
fry only the soft inside portion of them and you have instant fried garlic breads.
