New Tasty Meat Strips

Best Blog Tips

Here is yet another tasty alternative for your menu!

1 1/2 cups brown rice (can be leftovers)
1 cup oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
Salt to taste
2 Tbsp, onion powder
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 of a small beet, peeled and cubed
1 stalk celery, washed and sliced
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. sage
1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Enough water to make a dough, starting with 1/2 cup

In a blender, process celery and beet with a little bit of water till smooth. Scrape into a bowl.
Mix in all the ingredients, adding water little by little while combining, until you have a soft dough that is not runny.
With clean hands, form patties and in an oiled cookie sheet, bake them till golden brown at 350 degrees F.
Meanwhile, prepare your favorite spaghetti-style tomato sauce (if you make your own barbecue sauce, you can use that too). When the meatless meaties are done in the oven and the sauce is ready, you take them out of the oven, slice them into thick chunks and throw them into the sauce, let them absorb the flavor of the sauce for about ten minutes.
Add as a side dish to mashed potatoes, baked yams, brown rice, you name it!

This are very tasty and easy to make. Nutritious and economical and can be a delicious side dish easily incorporated into many meals.
Try them, they are really good!

2 cups tofu, drained and mashed
1 cup mashed potatoes
1/2 cup quick oats
2 Tbsp. onion powder
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
1 tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 Tbsp. turmeric
Salt to taste
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. whole wheat flour

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients and form patties with clean hands. Cook them in a hot skillet barely "painted" with olive oil, about 15 minutes
on each side, keeping an eye on them so that they will not brown too much!

Yield depends upon the size you make the patties. If you make them large they will serve 2 people. If you make them smaller, they can serve from 3 to 4 people. It depends if you use them just to add to a meal or if you use them in buns for lunch.
