Tvp Taco Skillet

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Budgiegirl

Textured vegetable protein (TVP) is a soy based meat substitute. It is 1 point per 1/4 cup dry for Weight Watchers. I would consider TVP to be a core food.

This was better than I thought it would be. Mine was a little bland because I held back on the soy sauce so next time a little more salt and I want to try red bell pepper instead of the green that I used.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour boiling water into dry TVP granules and stir. Let sit until water is absorbed, about ten minutes.
  2. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until onions turn soft, about 6-8 minutes.
  3. Add bell pepper and sauté 2 more minute.
  4. Add TVP, and stir.
  5. Add tamari and spices, and continue simmering until all ingredients are well-blended.
  6. Some people like extra tamari or extra spices…adjust according to your taste. Serve in hard taco shells or soft tortillas, with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, salsa, refried beans, etc.
