G.I. Joes

Your family will never miss the meat when they gobble up this quick, crowd-pleasing dinner. Frozen soy crumbles stand in for ground beef but still make up that sloppy, saucy sandwich your kids love. Soy provides high quality protein, has no cholesterol, and is low in saturated fat. Plus, it looks, smells, and tastes similar to meat while providing heart healthy benefits.

Parents, use Parker House rolls or Hawaiian rolls for a smaller, kid-friendly sandwich. For children with bigger appetites, stick with Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns.
