Making the Vegetarian Cuban Picadillo couldn’t be easier. Check out how easy it is with my recipe below.

Every Cuban has a special way of making Picadillo but the one item that makes it picadillo is well the meat. However, it’s so neat to be able to use the MorningStar Meal Starters Grillers Crumbles to give this dish the “meat of the dish” 100% Vegetarian (Although you would never guess) you will be able to keep this meal Vegetarian as can be.morning star 2


1 Table spoon of olive oil

1 Medium onion Chopped

1 Large green Pepper Chopped

3 Garlic Cloves peeled and minced

Bag of MorningStar Meal Starters Grillers Crumbles

1/2 Cup of Tomato Sauce

1/2 Cup of Sliced, stuffed Green Olives

1 Table spoon of Capers

1 6oz drained jar of Pimientos

1 teaspoon of Pepper

1 teaspoon of Salt

optional: 1/4 cup of raisins ( I omit this because my kids don’t like it with raisins)
Heat the oil in a large skillet and saute the onions, peppers and garlic until the onions are translucent.
Add the MorningStar Crumbles and mix with onion mixture.
Stir in the Tomato Sauce, olives,capers,vinegar, salt and pepper

Reduce heat to low and cook until it “thickens up” for around 20 minutes.
Serve over White Rice and enjoy! Buen Provecho!

    From the pictures they really look like meat instead of vegetables. I never tried picadillo before but the ingredients don’t seem to be too different from what I usually eat so I’ll try this sometime.
