I use Yves Veggie Ground Round in all sorts of things. It is
particularly good in veggie chili, pasta sauces and shepards pie - all
though I've used it in all sorts of pasta dishes as well as burritos etc.
You can pretty much use it wherever you might have used ground beef. I
buy it when its on sale and freeze it until I need it. Its very easy to
use - just toss it into whatever you're cooking.

Subject: another ground meat alternative
I haven't been following the digests as well as I'd like, so I
apologize if I missed a post on this previously, but I haven't seen
the Yves "ground beef" product mentioned (fatfree & vegetarian) yet.
I just tried it for the first time last night (the Italian flavor)...
just crumbled it into some NF spaghetti sauce & microwaved it. It was
incredibly like a meat sauce! I think a package was less than $4,
and says it's equivalent to 1 1/2 pounds of *cooked* ground meat.
I *love* the gimme lean sausage flavor sliced & grilled for breakfast,
but the Yves is much better (IMHO) in a pasta sauce.
If someone has tried this product and have other ways you've had success
cooking it, let me know. (I made a mistake and ordered a whole case
instead of a single from my coop :-).
