Not roast pot roast

During the week N does most, if not all of the cooking.  He makes some amazing quick meals, however, it’s like pulling teeth trying to get him to describe what he did.  When I asked him how he made this meal, he just shrugged and said he “threw some stuff in a pot”.  After much badgering, I finally got him to write the following:

This dish is so simple! For the “meat” we used our friends’ Gutenfleischers totally amazing faux gyro meat. I just tossed it in a small pot with some chopped carrots, peas and a can of stewed tomatoes and turned the stove on medium-low. For spices I threw in two cloves of minced garlic and a pinch of rosemary salt (the same one we used in the split pea soup post). 30 minutes later, ba-doosh:

This meal was delicious, comforting and most importantly, quick! A lot of the flavor came from the gyro “meat” because Gutenfleischers does an amazing job at flavoring their faux meats. If you’re not an Atlanta local, you can still get your mouths on this amazing faux meat by ordering from Cosmo’s Vegan Shoppe. Imagine the pots-ibilities with this dish….serve it up over biscuits or potatoes or put a layer of mashed potatoes over it and you’d have instant shepherd’s pie!

    I also incorporate faux meat into my cooking every once in a while and I love how fast it cooks -it can be the last one you throw in to the pot and it’ll come out great, unlike real meat that takes forever. Thanks for sharing for this fab, simple, easy recipe!

    Okay, here’s the deal: we’ll share our desserts with you if N will cook us some meals now and then. How does that sound? Never heard of faux gyro meat (or Gutenfleishers) – thanks for the tip!
