Textured soy protien question
I just bought a bag of dehydrated TVP flakes. Are there any recipes on this site for it? And how do I find them? Any other suggestions to use it welcome.
I've lost over three pounds in the month since I returned to vegetaria...this is good progress. Need to lose another 20. I have learned so much good stuff from hanging out here, it seems to be a lot easier than it did a while back!
I usually take 1 cup and pour it into a scant 1 cup of vegetable broth (or water). I add 1-2 Tbsp soy sauce (or Braggs if you have it), 1-2 Tbsp ketchup, and 1-2 Tbsp nutritional yeast (sorry, I usually don't measure but this isn't an exact science). Let it boil for 5 min or so.
You can use TVP in a lot of recipes that call for ground beef/turkey, or tofu. Such as stews, soups, chili, spaghetti sauce, sloppy joes, lettuce wraps, tacos, casseroles, etc. If I have a specific purpose for the TVP, I will usually season the above recipe with whatever goes with what I am cooking. For example, if I am making tacos, I will use taco seasoning.
i do what LittleCrystal said....then i add some other spices depending on how i want it to taste...like cayenne pepper...and then i wrap it in cabbage ..so good ;D
I haven't used TSP yet but I just came across a recipe that I'd like to make. Is there a difference between TSP & TVP? Which do you prefer for texture &/or taste? I've noticed that the TVP is a lot cheaper. 3.5lbs of TSP=$23.36. 3lbs of TVP=$8.60....there has to be a reason for the cost difference?????
