I am not very fond of soya products even though I know it is good for health. Something about it’s taste used to put me down. (But for next few days it is one thing I want to work on. I will be cooking more with soy products). I ignored it for a long time and now I am kicking myself for this. I tried this yesterday. I was very hungry, tired and wanted something quick and easy. So I tried this and we both absolutely loved it. Note to self, “don’t judge any dishes, give it a try”. I will be making this more often now.
I didn’t have soy-crumbles with me. So I cooked some soya chunks and chopped them to tiny pieces. I topped it with some fresh basil from my vegetable garden and red chilli flakes. Gowri suggests to use soy crumbles (Morningstar FarmsÂ® Meal Startersâ„¢ GrillersÂ® Recipe Crumbles).
