Tea: more than a year ago
I emptied the entire bag into a large pot with 7 cups of water; brought to a boil, then simmered for 40 minutes w/ the lid offset.
When you cook it, the water is a muddy colour. Once cooked, it tastes and smells like raw meat that has been left out. It was completely unpalatable; one simply gagged it back up. Salt made the raw meat taste worse. Beyond gross!
What I ended up doing was, taking half of it, mashed it down quite a bit by hand (so it handled like ground meat). Next, I mixed into the mixture: one whisked egg, some oats, seasonings, and then made some patties which I fried up in the frying pan. It worked out pretty good.
For the rest of the mixture I did as above, but also added barbeque sauce to the mixture, placed in a large baking dish, then added more barbeque sauce, then baked in the oven at 350 for 55 minutes. Turned out alright.
As a meat substitute- maybe, but probably not.
As a Rice and Bean Pilaf- Never.
