i've never posted a recipe here before. my food tends to not be very special. or taken from here. :) anyway, this is started out as a recipe i found here
. also, note that this was the first time i cooked with tvp, so i didn't know how much it was gonna expand, and ended up with a shitload of food. me and my boyfriend have eaten it twice each already and there's like 4-5 servings left. oupps.ingredients:
1 cup tvp crumbles, soaked in 7/8 cup of vegetable buillon
1/2 can of mushrooms
1/4 (or so) of a yellow bell pepper
lots of corn (i didn't measure this)
1 big can of italian crushed tomatoes
a little bit of chili sauce
lots of garlic salt (i was out of "real" garlic)
some oregano (the recipe calls for basil, but i didn't have that)
and of course pasta, i had spaghetti
(the recipe also calls for vegan parmesan on top, but i skipped that)
olive oil (i used vegetable oil)directions:
soak the tvp in water or vegetable builloned water. put the corn, chopped bell pepper and mushrooms in a pan with some oil. cook for a little bit. (hehe, i'm sorry about my vagueness, i'm not good at describing how to cook stuff!)
add the tvp after it has soaked for like 10 mins (that's what it said on the bag). stir for a little bit.
season with garlic before adding the crushed tomatoes. cook for a little bit. add some ketchup and chili sauce until the "sauce" looks good. add the oregano towards the end.
serve with spaghetti, and if you have vegan parmesan sprinkle some on top.
this was awesome. my boyfriend loved it, and he doesn't usually like this kind of food.
