I was intrigued by a recipe in the Vegetarian Times for Vegetarian Osso Buco. It won the 2008 readers recipe contest.
I changed it around a lot, though. I don’t think it should even be called Vegetarian Osso Buco. Maybe Veggie Chicken Stew. Whatever it should be called, it was a huge hit.
Veggie Chicken Stew
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup carrot, chopped
2 zucchini, cubed
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 small can tomato sauce
1 can petite diced tomatoes
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 – 1 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 package Morningstar Farms veggie chicken strips
Saute the onion and garlic until translucent. Add the carrot and zucchini and saute until tender. Ad the rest of the ingredients and simmer 15 minutes.
