Every time we go to Dutch Wonderland we leave the park right around dinner time and inevitably stop at the nearby Panera. Just as inevitably, our daughters want the mac-n-cheese kids dinner (it's NOT a bowl of Kraft orange easy mac, so we don't argue). For me, a soup-and-sandwich combo is always satisfying, and my favorite selection soup-wise is their turkey chili. This recipe is an ode to that hearty, tomato-free bowl of delicious.

I love meat: pork, chicken, beef, veal. The list goes on. But I also recognize the value in protein derived from other sources. I have a sister-in-law who's vegetarian, we have friends who are, so it would be nice to have something to offer them when firing-up the grill. The Impossible Whopper at Burger King has great texture compared to other veggie patties, much more akin to a regular burger: not a heavy, mushy ball of bean and binder. I decided to try making something similar by creating a seitan that I could grind and reform into patties. I found that it works great when the ground mix is sauteed as taco meat or "ground beef" for a bolognese.
