A question about a recipe: Baked Spaghetti with Mushrooms and Olives

I have a question about step 4 on the recipe "Baked Spaghetti with Mushrooms and Olives" from Smyog. It says:

"Stir until meat and mushrooms are cooked (about 7 minutes). Add the pasta sauce and olives."

Can we use soy protein (beef) in place of the hamburger...?

If your soy protein is the kind of crumbles that are ready to use, you can use them with a shorter cooking time. If you have some kind of TVP (dry) it would need to be soaked first, or you will need to add a little water to the sauce, then cook for a short time before adding the sauce. You will also have less fat from the soy, so you could add a little more oil, according to your taste and judgement.
