"This is a very tasty recipe that we really enjoy. I love meat but am totally satisfied and love this recipe. It is heart healthy. I am not sure how the nutritional facts will come out because Yves vegetrian ground meat is not in the nut index. To make it even lower in carbs and calories serve it over Tofu pasta. You may be very surprised at how good this meal is"

More stars please! I was only able to get Yves plain ground round, so added a couple of teaspoons (not measured) of homemade taco seasoning when I added the "meat". Came to together easily and DH said it was "Beautiful and a definite keeper". He had no idea that it was not ground beef, and was totally surprised when I told him. Served this on small toasted multigrain buns. Thanks Bergy for sharing your wonderful recipe! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
