I love meat, but often can't afford it, especially with the economy taking a nose-dive and food generally being so expensive. So. When the end of the month draws near, and food stocks in the cupboard run low, here is a quick fix to help bulk out your cupboard. I have added specific ingredients, but remember that this is an emergency stash using recipe; substitute where ever you need to. The recipe that follows is for a chicken-like meat substitute, but can be altered to suit your tastes. The following recipe makes approximately 12 "meat" patties, or enough to fill a generous meat portion of 2-3 meals for 2 people. Prep time includes soaking beans.
