Description

Do you know how to prepare textured vegetable protein (TVP)? Textured Vegetable Protein is made from soybeans. It’s an inexpensive and relatively concentrated source of plant-based protein. When rehydrated, TVP has a texture like cooked ground beef. So give it a try. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to prepare, and how delicious it tastes!

Ingredients

1 2/3 cups textured vegetable protein (125 g)
3 cups hot water (750 mL)
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (30 mL)
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon chili powder (5 mL)
1 tablespoon agave nectar or maple syrup (15 mL)
3 tablespoons soy sauce (45 mL)
2 tablespoons ketchup (30 mL)
6 taco shells
1 tomato, diced
Iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 avocado, sliced
