this was great - I thought that the cashews threw the texture off a bit, but I liked the TASTE so much that I added about two tablespoons of cashew butter instead, gave it a great consistancy (but not TOO creamy) YUM! my vegan bf loved it.

Yeah for a good TVP recipe! I have a similar recipe for making vegan "sloppy joes" but I love the BBQ sauce in this recipe and the cashews really add a nice toothsomeness to each bite. It's a keeper!

This was great! It is a perfect recipe for someone who doesn't care too much for meat, is very active and tends to have lower iron levels. Unfortunately, I have to go gluten-free, and I refuse to pay $6 for a loaf of bread or package of rolls that taste horrible, so I had to try it sans bread. By was wonderful! Thanks for sharing!
