How to Make the Veg Tofu Scramble

Over medium heat, preheat a sizable stockpot or dutch oven.

Add the ground beef, onion, minced garlic, carrots, and celery, and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink. Grease should be drained into a can.

Add the oregano, thyme leaves, chicken broth, kidney beans, white beans, tomato sauce, and diced tomatoes to the pot. To blend, stir.

Add the pasta when the liquid begins to boil.

Once the heat is reduced, cook the pasta for 10 minutes, or until al dente.

If preferred, garnish the dish with grated parmesan and chopped parsley.
