Remember my Freaky Monday Meat Cakes? This is kind of like that, but instead of baking a meatless meatloaf, I made a scramble. Sometimes veggie-loaves can be mushy, and this scramble tasted like a veggie-loaf but without that yucky mushy quality. We served them in dessert cups with mashed potato ghosts on top!
1 cup rehydrated TVP
1 cup ground beef-style veggie crumbles
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
1 tsp Mrs Dash salt-free seasoning
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
olive oil for cooking
1- In a medium bowl combine the TVP and veggie ground beef.
2- Stir in the tomato sauce, tomato paste, ketchup, tamari, and Mrs. Dash.
3- Stir in the breadcrumbs and cornmeal and mix well.
4- Preheat a non stick skillet with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.
5- Cook the meatloaf mix like you would cook a tofu scramble. Stir every now and then to cook it thoroughly. Mine took 25 minutes and it was enough for 4 individual dessert cups.
If you’re going to Halloween these up, spoon some mashed potatoes on top and use the spoon to mold the ghosts, a la “Close Encounters of the Third Kind“. Use a toothpick to “drop” ketchup eyes and mouths onto their little faces.
Have a happy weekend everyone! :)
