This is such an easy and great meat replacement recipe

This is from Sistertzu. I had to search a while, but I finally found it.
I have made this several times and it makes great sloppy joes, tacos, etc. Even my wife liked it and she's not vegetarian at all. It looks like cooked hamburger meat when its done.

1 cup textured vegetable protein
1/4 cup ground flax (I used light seeds)
1/4 cup chia seeds (ground in coffee grinder)
salt or salt seasoning to taste (pappys 50% less salt)
pepper to taste
2 T soy sauce or equivalent
garlic /onion to taste
oil /clarified butter for sauteing
1 cup boiling water or broth

Ok, put everything except chia powder and oil in a large mixing cup
add water or broth, stir, let sit an hour.
add chia powder stir, it will be sticky and weird
heat skillet add fat of your choice
saute, browning and breaking up as desired
cook until the moisture is evaporated and it's nicely browned

Your quite the chef! I was looking at all your recipes posted on here, they all look delicious! I am not vegetarian but have been toying with the idea of just once a week cutting meat.

BTW your dog is super cute!!!!!!
