Baked Steaklets

From: Linda McCartney’s Home Cooking, p. 84

Steaklets (or veggie burgers) covered with fried onions, tomato sauce, and fried mushrooms and baked in the oven.

This dish seems to be another one of those dishes meat-eaters like a lot. It has the taste and feel of a meat-based oven-bake and is very easy and quick to make. Perfect for dinner in winter time with lots of friends and family around the table.

I did use vegetable burgers instead of steaklets and substituted 2/3 of the tomato ketchup with tomato purée. I also added 2 tbsp of ready-made salsa to spicen up the sauce a bit.

This stew became an instant favourite of my daughter- she just did not stop eating…
It is a great recipe for preparing in advance and re-heating when needed.

I used soy steaks from vantastic foods. In Germany, smaller TVP chunks are also available from Alnatura.

Variations: To give this dish more flavour, try using vegetarian worcestershire sauce instead of soy sauce, and add 1/2 a chopped and deseeded chilli and 3 tablespoons tomato puree.

Gluten- free: If you want a gluten-free meal, check that the TVP chunks or burgers you are using are are gluten-free.

Vegan: The stew is vegan if you use margarine or vegetable oil instead of butter.
