Minced soy meat

Did a small shopping haul for tomorrows recipe video. Cant wait to share it with you guys. I was gonna make it today, but the sun started to go down as I was about to film so I decided to postpone the whole thing instead. 😉

My boyfriend have been working nonstop for 2 weeks now with transcribing interviews for his masters degree thesis. After a well deserved rest/sleep, he woke up to this:


If you miss minced meat or just want a little convenience in your everyday life, give this one a try. I highly recommend it 🙂
