Serve on a bed of couscous The soya bits are sold under the brand name So Soya and can be found in many grocery stores. They are a good meat substitute that requires no refrigeration This recipe appeared in Barb Young's column Food for Paddlers in Nastawgan - The Quarterly Journal of the WCA and was originally submitted by Rita Ness. We tried the recipe, but found it a bit sweet for our taste.
