Have you heard about the new Impossible Burger? It is now available just like you would buy ground ‘beef’ at the grocery store. I gave it a try as a substitute for beef in our favorite homemade spaghetti sauce recipe.
The result - it tasted GREAT and had wonderful texture. Bottom-line, it worked really well as a meat-substitute in my favorite homemade spaghetti sauce. For more on Impossible Foods, visit their website: https://impossiblefoods.com/
