TVP - recipes?
Please post recipe ideas! We have a large bag of TVP and I have not cooked with it in years. I have a tendency to make up recipes and not write them down, and then when I have not made something in awhile I am a little lost. It has been at least 5 years since I have cooked with TVP.
Isn't it odd, that the same thing happens to others at the same time. I was just looking into that the other day. I found a few ideas and some information at about.com ...I'm sure there are dozens of sites that would be helpful. I often find that so many get a little too...well too, if you know what I mean. I usually just want recipes, and info on HOW to use it. I've yet to find anywhere that tells me the proportions of TVP to liquid, to simple reconstitute it. I have lots of ideas on how to use it, in the same way as I'd use any ground meat, if I could find an answer to that question, of proportions.
The same thing has been dogging me for a year! I have a bag of Bob's Red Mill TVP that my husband bought accidentally and I can't remember how to use it, except in chili. I'm so glad this came up!
I'm going to try the chorizo recipe.
I haven't used TVP in awhile - lately I'm using Yves Veggie Cuisine Veggie Ground Round.... however TVP was a staple in my chili and tomato sauces.
Vegetarian Times is usually a good resource for me... I did a quick search and pulled up four recipes searching TVP: http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipe...
This is our annual Christmas Eve dinner. It dirties every pot in the house. It's not going to use a lot of TVP, but it will take care of some of it.
