Minced Soya with Cabbage

As I had stated in a previous post, soya is a good source of proteins and carbohydrates. It can be used as a substitute for red meat and it is very nutritious. Minced soya is similar to minced meat.

These soya pieces are smaller and the end result resembles a dish prepared using red minced meat. The brand I use is Proya but of course you are at liberty to use whichever brand you want.

If you use curry powder, you do not need to mix it with water in a bowl before adding to the saucepan. You can also add cayenne pepper to make it spicy.

This dish is very simple to prepare and very delicious. It can be served with rice, chapati, sima/ugali, matoke or even mashed potatoes.
