SOYA CHUNKS CACCIATORE

This time I wanted a meatless sunday since we had lots of meat the whole week. I have tried something new. A classic hunter style Italian chicken taste in vegetarian "soya chunks". It was very good. Soya chunks almost tastes like meat and I truly enjoyed having it with a different taste.
