family recipes: s.o.s.

Another meal from my Veganizing Family Recipes project.

Apparently this one came from my Opa even though I swear I remember Oma making it. They always made it for breakfast, but Mom would make it for dinner. It goes both ways!

I've missed S.O.S. dearly. It's delicious and perfect and comforting and cheap and way easy. I'm beginning to feel more at home already :-).

(serves 1, but can be altered easily to serve more)
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2.5 oz veggie crumbles or 1 veggie burger, crumbled
  • 1/2 sm. onion, diced
  • 1 tbls. flour
  • 1/2 cup original unsweetened rice milk (Soy milk tastes too soyish.)
  • 1 -2 dashes of soy sauce*
  • salt and lots of pepper to taste
1. In a sm. nonstick pan or cast iron skillet, heat oil over medium heat. When oil is hot, add onion and veggie crumbles. Stir often and cook until onions are fragrant and crumbles are browned.
2. Whisk in the flour, making sure all the fat is absorbed. Slowly pour in the milk while whisking. Once everything is combined, turn heat to medium low. Add the soy sauce. Let simmer until thickened and gravy like (around 2 - 3 mintutes.)
3. Once the gravy has thickened, turn off heat and add salt & pepper to taste. Serve over toast or bicuits.

* The soy sauce adds a certain depth of flavor that makes this dish work without beef. Don't forget it!

So Delicious.
