"Nature's ten thousand voices speak His praise. In earth, and air, and sky, with their marvelous tint and color, varying in gorgeous contrast or softly blended in harmony, we behold His glory. The everlasting hills tell us of His power. The trees wave their green banners in the sunlight, and point us upward to their Creator. The flowers that gem the eath with their beauty whisper to us of Eden and fill us with longings for its unfading loveliness. The living green that carpets the brown earth tell us of God's care for the humblest of His creatures. The caves of the sea and the depths of the earth reveal His treasures. He who placed the pearls in the ocean and the amethyst and the chrysolite among the rocks is a lover of the beutiful. The sun rising in the heavens is the representative of Him who is the light and life of all that He has made. All the brightness and beauty that adorn the earth and light up the heavens speak of God." —Good Health, August, 1882.
May your New Year be guided by His love!

Meatless "Meat" Crumbles

Best Blog Tips




This is an ideal recipe for a side dish. It goes well with so many things that listing them is almost impossible, but I will give you a few examples.
It is ideal for potatoes, rice, pasta. For layered casseroles, as a filling for pita pockets. It would be a suceesful addition to baked yams, or a wonderful filling for turnovers, empanadas or burritos.
It could be used as follows: cut in half a sweet squash. Bake it and once it is done, fill the hollow center with this delicious meat substitute, add your favorite tomato sauce recipe and serve with a good salad and something for dessert. You've got yourself a very nice and easy meal!
Here's the recipe:

2 cups of quick oats
1 1/2 cup wheat berries, cooked until they are soft, like rice (follow package directions)
1 large potato or 2 medium size potatoes
1 stalk celery
2 medium size carrots
1/2 cup Anaheim and sweet red peppers, chopped
1 medium size onion
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
Salt to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp. garlic powder
3/4 cup Vital Wheat Gluten flour (from a health food store or a specialty store)
1 cup brown rice, cooked
1 Tbsp. beet powder or 1 medium size raw beet
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1 tsp. ground coriander
1/2 tsp. ground sage
1/4 ground oregano
1/4 ground rosemary

Cook the rice and the wheat berries (separately) until done. Let cool. Peel the potato and the carrots and cube them. Peel the onion and corasely chop it. Chop the peppers. Peel the beet (if not using powder), and chop it. Slice the celery. Put in the blender or food processor the onion, the beet, potato, carrots, celery stalk and process with a little wter till smooth.
Scrape into a bowl, add all the other ingredients, except the olive oil. Combine well until you have a soft dough. In a skillet, put the olive oil, heat it to 300º F and put the "meat" to cook in it. As the "meat" cooks, break it apart with a fork into crumbles and continue to cook it and move it around until it is golden brown but not tough. Approximately 40 minutes.
If you would like to add some sauce to it to make it juicier, proceed as follows: Prepare your favorite spaghetti-like tomato sauce and have it ready. As the "meat" cooks, add the sauce by the tablespoon and let the "meat" absorb it completely, then add more. As it cooks, it will absorb the flavor of the sauce and without being runny, it will not be tough but juicy.

Best Blog Tips
This is a wonderfully versatile vegan meatless "meat". You cn use is as is for a side dish for anything from potatoes to baked yams. Or you canuse it as a filling for turnovers, potpies, casseroles, etc. You can also hollow acorn squashes, bake them and then fill them with this recipe, topping it all with your favorite sauce or gravy and eat them from the shell! Keep this recipe handy, you'll find a lot of ways to use it! I've enclosed photos of two ways this recipe can be served (one is as a side dish to simple potatoes and the other is as a filling for empanadas or turnovers!).

1 cup brown rice, cooked (could be leftovers)
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup soy flour
1 medium size onion, coasely chopped
1 medium size potato, cut into cubes
1 cup water
half of a small raw beet, peeled and sliced
1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (you could make your own by toasting your whole wheat bread and then pulverizing it int he blender or food processor, you can even grate it)
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
Salt to taste
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast (optional)
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts or almonds, chopped
1/2 tsp. dried sage
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary
1/2 tsp. ground coriander seed
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup gluten flour or Do-Pep


In a blender, put the potato, the onion and the beet with a little bit of water and process till smooth. Scrape into a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly, forming a soft dough.
Put the 3 Tbsp. of olive oil in an electric skillet and heat to 300º F. Put your dough in the skillet and as if cooks, add the 1 cup of water in very little bits to keep it from burning and keep breaking it with a fork and turning it to brown it. Don't drown it in water all at once! Add little by little. Keep turning it and breaking it into crumbles as you cook it until it is dry but not hard (about 40 minutes or till golden brown on all sides.)
If you are using it for stuffing, add chopped pimento-stuffed olives to taste.
Enjoy!
