This is another great one-dish meal that has become a regular comfort food for many of my family and friends. It uses texturized vegetable protein in place of beef. Using mashed sweet potatoes keeps this low on the Glycemic Index. Makes 4-6 servings. Recipe from The Modern Ayurvedic: Healthful, Healing Recipes for Life, courtesy of Arsenal Pulp Press.
In a bowl, combine bouillon and hot water, then add TVP and soak for 5 minutes to reconstitute TVP (it will double in size).
In a medium pot on medium-high, heat oil. Add onions, ginger, garlic, and chili and sauté for 2 minutes. Add TVP and remaining ingredients except sweet potatoes and Parmesan cheese. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until done, about 20 minutes. (If it starts to dry out, cover with lid.) Remove chili.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Spread TVP mixture evenly in a casserole or ovenproof dish. Cover with mashed sweet potatoes and flatten with fork. Rake fork through for a nice design. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.
Bake for 20 minutes. Cut in squares and serve.
