GROUND RISOFU COOKING TIPS
First Things First
Season a little heavier than you would ground meat. It is recommend making a paste with your herbs, seasonings, and your vegetables. If adding liquid or wet seasoning (more than 1 Tbsp. per pound) you may need to add a thickening agent. This can be xanthan gum if you are a vegetarian, or if you need it to be gluten free. If not, it can be breadcrumbs, flour, or an egg.
Tip: Risofu® is very low in fat. So feel free to add back what you like according to your specific taste and/or recipe requirement.
