Lori M's Sausage Chowder
I got this delicious recipe off the McDougall forum years ago posted by someone named LoriM. It calls for a faux hamburger "meat" and the only type I could find where I live is Yves Ground Round, as pictured below. This product is expensive and too processed for my liking, but it does work well in this recipe.
Next time I will use Bob's Red Mill TVP (textured vegetable protein). I think it's more reasonably priced and it's certainly not as processed, the only ingredient being soy flour.
Here's the recipe:
1 lb faux ground "meat" of your choice 2 onions, chopped fine 2 bay leaves 1/2 tsp black pepper 1 tsp thyme 2 tsp sage 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes 1 can chick peas 2 cans red kidney beans 3 potatoes, diced
Brown sausage and onions in a dutch oven and add all ingredients except the potatoes. Simmer 1 hour. Add potatoes, cook for an additiona 1/2 hour. Easily doubled and freezes well. You can add extra water and tomato sauce to thin it slightly, if you prefer. I like it thick.
