This is the recipe from "The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook". SO EASY!!! My kids have always loved this, they are 15 and 11. Originally it called for 3TBS oil, I use 2, but I'm sure you could use less. A little indulgence doesn't hurt. I use olive oil because I LOVE it.
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 large green pepper, diced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1⁄2 cups boiling water
- 2 1⁄2 cups tomato sauce
- 1 -2 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 pinch pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon mustard
- 1 tablespoon sugar (I use sucanat)
- 1 1⁄2 cups dry textured vegetable protein
- Saute onion and green pepper in oil.
- Add remaining ingredients and simmer together for 20 minutes.
I really enjoyed this. Can't quite convince my DH to try much of anything with TVP, but I liked it! :) The flavor & consistency were good. I halved the recipe & followed mostly as written, although I just eyeballed all of the seasonings. It was also really easy to make. I'm looking forward to leftovers later this week. Thanks for posting.
So tasty, we alternate different veg,some days we add fried mushrooms or sweetcorn. We use hotdog mustard too. Kids love this dish and happily clear the plate.
This was really good. My kids even loved it. We had 5 adults and 2 kids we were feeding, so I doubled the recipe. It was demolished - just barely enough leftover to send with my husband for lunch tomorrow. Next time I'll add some fresh garlic as I'm sauteing the pepper and onion.
