This is a yummy vegetarian, lo-carb, lo-cal dish! It is really great for freezing in individual portions to take to work for lunch. I got the original recipe from CeeCee526 on Recipezaar but I've made a number of changes -- so I'm posting it as my own. Hope you Enjoy!!

This was my first adventure with tofu.. and I LOVED this!! I didn't have any TVP, so I crumbled up two Morningstar Mushroom Burgers. I did use two packages of spinach, because I like spinach, 2 or 3 egg whites, because I didn't have egg substitute, and I don't have a food processor, so the vegies all stayed as. This was PERFECT!!! And best of all, low calorie, and guilt free! Thanks so much for posting!!
