"I am a working artist with a continuing culinary practice in special recipe design- I like to make jams and jellies, salsa and pasta sauce from locally sourced or personally grown produce. At the local farmer's market my friend and I sell muffins we make and also seeds from Seed Savers Exchange, which takes seriously the preservation and protection of heirloom varieties from around the world. I have self-published a children's book I illustrated and am working on a followup book with the author that continues the story of "Sophie, Circus Mouse", the first title. The illustration above is one I created for a local orchard's street sign."

    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!

    This was wonderful. I had long been in search of some good TVP recipes, and this is both very tasty, and very easy. I didn't use quite so much barbeque sauce, as I found it was fine with less. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I never thought I would hear my quasi-vegetarian husband say "I love TVP" but this recipe did the trick. I've made it several times, each to rave reviews and minimal leftovers. The last few times, I've added a can of diced tomatoes and spiced it up a bit more with cumin, chili powder, and cayenne pepper. Thanks Karyl for a deliciously inexpensive meal!

    I am just transitioning from an omni to a vegan diet and I have never eaten nor cooked with TVP before. I made this for my boyfriend (skeptic) and myself exactly as the recipe called for but I did add a little liquid smoke. This was very good and the left overs were even better!
