This started as a recipe for ground lamb, but none of our local grocery stores carried it. So we tried it with plant-based beef and loved the result. You can store each serving in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze each serving, which will stay good for six months. Enjoy it with a slice of hearty bread to really fill you up.
