I just made this tonight, it was originally going to be TVP tacos but I was inspired by the few things I had left in my pantry. Ketchup just felt right. It was a big hit with my husband and four-year. I paired it with some steamed veggies.

This is very good and will be my go to dish. Only this i will changed is adding a little of the spices to the potato's before adding them to the rest of the dish.

I love this recipe. I just started cooking with TVP and this is SO EASY. I made it for breakfast a couple of weeks ago. I skipped the ketchup and added spaghetti sauce instead. Then I topped it with salsa. This is now one of my "go-to" recipes.

Surprisingly tasty! I added lots of ketchup to my plate, and my BF added soy sauce and sesame seed oil. The recipe as is fed two of us very well. I'm not sure what it was supposed to taste like, but it was good. Super fast, cheap, and used things we already had on hand. Thanks for sharing your recipe Jenfrito
