Yummified Spaghetti Sauce with Vegan Parmesan

Yummified Spaghetti Sauce with Vegan Parmesan

Introduction

This recipe takes cheap, plain spaghetti sauce and makes it into a vegan meaty, creamy, tangy sauce.

We use Hunt's Garlic and Herb because it's the least expensive sauce you can buy that doesn't contain a lot of sugar or fat. In fact, it's pretty much the same price as buying unseasoned tomato sauce.

Ingredients

    1 cup Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) granules, you can find this in the bulk section of health food stores for less than $2 a pound or in a bag from Bob's Red Mill in the natural food section of most large grocery stores

    1 26 oz can Hunt's Garlic and Herb Spaghetti sauce
    2 tbs balsamic vinegar
    1/4 cup plain soy milk (any brand)
    1/4 cup nutritional yeast (also in the bulk section of health food stores, adds a cheesy flavor)
    2 tbs - 1/4 cup dried Italian herbs such as basil and oregano

    Vegan Parmesan
    1/4 cup sesame seeds
    1/4 cup nutritional yeast
    1 tbs salt

Directions

Bring 1 cup of water to a boil, add TVP granules. When water is absorbed, add sauce, vinegar, soymilk, 1/4 cup nutritional yeast and herbs to taste. Bring to simmer.

While sauce is simmering, blend sesame seeds, salt, and nutritional yeast together in a dry blender or coffee grinder (I prefer the coffee grinder method). Store in a plastic container in the freezer if you don't use it all.

Serving size is 1/6 of the sauce and 11/2 tbs of the Parmesan.
