It's been 20 something years but I still remember eating those frozen Salisbury Steaks as a kid before I became vegetarian. Besides the artery clogging cholesterol they had a 4 digit sodium listing. This vegan version of the classic TV dinner dish has a better taste, same texture, and it's also good for you.
