Vegetarian Meat Sauce


2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 onion, diced
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 lbs. vegetarian ground beef
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
½ teaspoon pepper
2 packages sliced mushrooms
½ cup red wine
2 jars marinara sauce


In a large pot, sauté the garlic and onion in oil over medium heat. Add the vegetarian ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Stir in spices. Add mushrooms and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the wine and let it cook down. Stir in the sauce and simmer for about 1-1/2 hours. A hearty and popular dinner.

Other vegetables can be added with the vegetarian beef – shredded carrots, peppers of any colors, eggplant – but my family are purists.
