This is what you call a wickedly delicious, vegetarian spaghetti sauce which tastes like a bolognaise but is really soybeans. I also use this sauce with jacket potatoes (and if I'm really feeling naughty, add a bit of shredded mozzarella cheese on top), rice or even, 'cause it's so thick, just on its own. For optimum flavor use dried soya, if available.

I am a vegetarian and I loved this. I miss the richness of a good meat sauce and even my semi-carnivore husband liked this. I doctored up the spices a little and used zucchini instead of okra as we don't care for okra. When you first make it you will think it'll never taste good but give a good 24 hours in a crockpot and you wil be pleased. Read More

I hate to say this but this was by far the worst thing I've ever cooked. It was truly gross. I can't believe I put this in front of my children. Read More

Sorry to say but this really was not even edible. Not sure what was wrong since I followed the recipe exactly. Read More
