Not being a farmer (or gardener) I wouldn't know, but sometimes nature is going to do what nature is going to do.

Worst case is you try it and fail.

Tofu is a good product to work with. It can be found in most produce dept.s Whatever you marinate tofu in it will pick up that flavor real well.
You can marinate it in red wine & stir fry it with fresh yellow & orange peppers. onions, mushrooms or whatever veggies you like. To make a sauce you can use a vegetable stock base, thickin it slightly & season with garlic. ground rosemary & thyme.
It.s called tofu stroganoff. Tofu is so vesatile you can do just about anything with it.

Pot Pie, Moussaka, Veggie Rolls

There are so many good vegetarian main dishes out there; it's ridiculously hard to pick. A few of my favorites are:

Guinness Pot Pie


Vegetarian sushi rolls (Nori Maki)
