"Diana Gray Ministries"

     Welcome to my recipe section  of our family "Diana Gray Ministries" recipes on "MEAT AND MEAT SUBSTITUTES."  I sincerely pray that we can be a real blessing to you and your family.  After you have checked out our recipes,  you might like to come back to see the rest of this spirit-filled ministry.  May the good Lord Bless you as you enjoy these recipes.

     MATT. 14:19-21 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.  And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.  And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

    Jesus is a loving Lord who really cares for His children.  You are special and He wants to care for you too.  He helped and fed  thousands of people that wonderful day and He can feed you too.  When you put you faith and trust in Him, he will get you through what ever troubles and trials that you are having.

     Faith, prayer and trust are the answers to our troubles when we have Jesus as our Savior and Lord.  Follow Him and you will be well fed, not just in you body but in your spiritual heart as well.  Jesus really loves you.  Your special and your life is important to Him. Enjoy these recipes, they were an inspiration  from the Lord.
 


 
"TVP" 
(Textured Vegetable Protein)
A GREAT MEAT SUBSTITUTE
Evangelist,  Rev. Diana Gray
Copyright (c) 1999-2003 
All Rights Reserved
   A great food that you should consider for food storage.  Itís made from soy beans ground up into a flour, which has the oil extracted.  You can buy it at a health food store.  TVP is  low in sodium and cholesterol free.  Itís mostly protein, with vitamins (including B12) and many minerals.  They cook it under extreme pressure and make it into granules or meat type chunks.

     The TVP is rehydrated and cooked to resemble the texture of protein meats.  TVP absorbs the flavors of the spices and can be used as a meat substitute in many delicious dishes.  TVP has a long shelf life depending on how you store it.  I suggest in a double airtight containers in a cool place.
1 cup of TVP plus 7/8 cup of boiling water yield about 2 cups of hydrated TVP
Mix, stir and set aside for 15 minutes.


 
TVP- "TACO" AND ENCHILADAS FILLING

   Sauté one finely chopped onion, with 5 table. Oil.  Season with chili powder to taste, garlic salt or powder, salt and pepper.  Stir 2 cups of prepared TVP (Textured vegetable protein you buy from a health food store,) and heat up for a few minutes.  Layer prepared tacosí with a spoonful of filling, cheese, lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and chopped olives.  Serve hot taco sauce over the top.
     Itís very hard to tell that this is not hamburger.  Really taste good!  Use an enchiladas recipe with the filling substituting for hamburger.  Great tasting too!

"GLUTEN MEAT SUBSTITUTE"
Evangelist,  Rev. Diana Gray
Copyright (c) 1999-2003

  Here's a" meat substitute" that my husband and I tried "years ago."

    Surprisingly it has the texture of a bit of real meat.  It's "not" as good as TVP (Textured vegetable protein) but you might like to try it for fun. If  there ever comes a day when meat is hard to come by and you crave the texture of meat, try remembering this recipe. First you make RYE COFFEE and set it aside.

     5 lbs. of Gluten flour (from the health food stores) Add 2 quarts of water to make a very stiff dough and set aside for about 1 hour or more.  Put it now into a large pan and cover with water.  Begin washing out the floury starch  with both hands.  After a few minutes drain out the water and do again until the water runs clear, that when the starch will be gone.

     If you want your Gluten Meat Substitute tender, cover it with cool water and let stand for a ½ a day.  Then cut the gluten into pieces or chunks and drop them into boiling water so that the gluten floats to the top.  Stirring gently!  Cook for ½ hour.

     Remove for immediate use or set aside in water keeping it in the refrigerator.   At this stage you could add soy sauce or smoke flavoring or what ever you like and chopped onions and gently fry in oil for a few minutes.  Not too long or it will get chewy and tough.  This is not as high in protein as the next recipe "Gluten Peanut Roast" which we tried.

     Of course you can rub your pieces down with "peanut butter" before you fry with onions to give them more flavor.  Thatís the way we tried them.  My husband surprisingly did say, that they had the texture of meat.

 (Some people with wheat allergies shouldn't use this recipe so ask your doctor if you have a problem with wheat.) 


 
"GLUTEN PEANUT ROAST"
Evangelist,  Rev. Diana Gray

8 oz. Very strong rye coffee
6 ounces of raw peanut meal (or peanut butter)
1 lb. Of washed gluten, not cooked  (Check Gluten Recipe out.)
Dash of Sea Salt or iodized salt

     Place this mixture into a glass bowl and place it into a pan of water.  Bake covered for 4 hours at about 300* Add water every now and then to the pan so it doesnít burn.
     I think that this would work out rather than canning although you could try that too.  You can now use the mixture by cutting it into chunks to be made into cubes.  You could add them to soups and stews or what ever dish that you would like.

"GLUTEN PATTIES"
Evangelist,  Rev. Diana Gray
Copyright (c) 1999-2003

2 ½ cups cooked gluten that has been grounded up  (Check Gluten Recipe out.)
 2 ½ cups of brown rice that has been cooked
 1 large onion
 1 chopped up celery
 1 small shredded carrot
 1 tsp. sea salt or iodized salt
 ½ cup of soy sauce
 ½ pepper
 ½ tea sage
 ½ tea garlic powder or garlic salt

     Mix and form into patties.  Lightly fry in a pan with a little oil on low-medium  heat.

     I donít believe in saying "good luck," because I give things to the Lord,  so may "God bless you" in your endeavors!" If anyone tries these "GLUTEN MEAT SUBSTITUTE" recipes, let me know how they worked out for you.  (I have not tried them all for a very long time.)  Maybe then we will "all" try it too, if you find a way of cooking them!  Also If anyone can come up with some recipe ideas to make with "Gluten Meat Substitute" send your recipe in and share your ideas.  I really look forward to hearing from everyone.

NUTRITIONAL, DELICIOUS
BURGER MIX
Evangelist,  Rev. Diana Gray
Copyright (c) 1999-2003

6 cups Brown Rice
2 cups Yellow Split Peas
2 cups Green Split Peas
2 cups Lentils
2 cups Oats
2 cups TVP Granules (Textured Vegetable Protein)
1 cup Sesame Seeds
¼  cup "Nutritional" Yeast
1 tbs. Sea Salt or iodized Salt
2 tsp. Paprika
2 tsp. Garlic powder
¼ cup Flour
1 tsp. Each dehydrated vegetables: onion, potatoes, tomatoes, red bell pepper, celery, carrots, green bell peppers etcÖ

     You might want to check at a health food store for some of these ingredients.  Sometimes they have a dehydrated vegetable mix that you could buy.  You will need about ½ cup.
     Place all of the ingredients a little at a time in a blender until it is nicely granulated  but not powdered.  Place the ingredients into a large bowl and mix up with your hands.  Store 2 cup amounts in sealed airtight bags and keep in a cool dry place.  Use up within a few months.  I donít know the shelf life but Iím sure that it will last for some time.  The sesame seeds is the ingredient that put itís life span in question. Of course you can place the mix in sealed bags in your refrigerator.  Yield about 17 ½ cups of mix.

   To cook, take 2 cups of mix to 2 cups of boiling water.  Stir  the mixture with the addition of  1 tsp. Of soy sauce, 1 tbs. Oil and set it aside for 20 minutes or so.  Form into 2" patties and fry in a layer of oil until nicely browned and crispy.  Taste one to see if you would like more seasoning or not.
     Now you can serve them as you would any burger on a bun with lettuce, sliced tomato, onion, pickles, catsup, mustard and or Mayo.  Enjoy!


Proverbs 15:15 ...but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.

    In bibical times people ate foods that were for the most part, still in their natural state.  A diet full of fruits, grains, vegetables, herbs, seeds, nuts and beans will give us better nutrition.  Better nutrition and the Lord,  will help us make it through whatever trials, and troubles that come our way.
    If you listen to the Word of God and follow a better eating pattern, then your bodies will be better able to with stand the onslot of worldly problems.  Your minds and bodies will be more in tune with the will of God, as you follow His Word for your life.
