Soya Mince And Macaroni Recipe
Soya pieces and soya mince have gained popularity as great substitutes for red meat in recent years. This is because they are rich sources of proteins and amino acids.
Soya mince is made from soya beans and does not contain any meat product. It is vegan friendly and is usually sold pre-cooked hence does not require too much cooking.
The most common soya pieces and soya mince products in Kenya are Sossi & Proya. Other varieties can be found in supermarkets with spices added.
On the other hand, macaroni is a great source of carbohydrates.
- 1 cup soya mince
- 1 onion
- 3 pieces of crushed garlic
- A small piece of crushed ginger
- 2 carrots
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 eggplant/aubergine
- Royco/curry powder
- Chili powder (optional)
- Cooking oil & salt
- Saute onions until translucent.
- Add the crushed garlic and ginger and saute for two more minutes until you can smell the aroma from the garlic & ginger.
- Add the tomatoes, carrots and chili powder.
- Once the tomatoes are cooked, add the eggplant and cook for two minutes. Stir well.
- Mix one tablespoon of royco with water in a bowl then pour into the sufuria. If using curry powder, add it together with the eggplant and stir very well before adding water.
- Once it starts boiling, add the soya mince, stir and cook covered for ten minutes. It is good to add the soya mince at this point so that it can absorb the flavours from the other ingredients.
- Check for amount of salt before adding any because royco contains salt. Lower heat and simmer for five minutes.
If you are using curried soya mince, do not add the royco or more curry powder. Otherwise the stew could end up too salty and this is not good for your health.
The macaroni in this recipe is boiled with a little salt, then served with the soya mince stew.
The same recipe can be used to prepare soya chunks/pieces.
