^^^ I've only used Bob's Red Mill because that's what is available at my store and the price is good, but I'd be interested in hearing about other brands as well.
Apparently, all TVP is made by that company and supplied to others.Originally Posted by Joe
Some sources indicate that "TVP is a registered trademark of Archer-Daniels-Midland Company." So saying TVP may be like saying Xerox instead of photocopy.
It's not clear what the "generic" name is--possibly, defatted soy flour.
If you do a search at http://www.recipesource.com/
for recipes using TVP as an ingredient, you will find 109 recipes--not all are vegetarian or vegan, though.
thats funny that you mentioned this......I have been a veg for 22 years and never tried it.....well my sweetie (an omni who loves to cook and eat veg) and I were walking round Whole Foods and found this same thing the Bobs Red Mill TVP and my Sweetie Says that he has a taco recipe that he wants to try with this.....we havent yet......but with all the awesome tips on here it sure is gonna be a great meal....thankies everyoneOriginally Posted by Digger
It's amazing actually that even after being vegetarian for 2.5 years I've avoided trying new foods, because I always thought they were more expensive, but TVP is actually quite cheap! I bought some Bob's Red Mill TVP at the store recently and look forward to trying it out. Does anyone have a good recipe for tacos, or other uses for it? Does one cup of TVP = approximately one pound of 'meat'? Thanks for any info you can provide.
Thanks for mentioning that one. It's got some great recipes. I'm hungry now.Originally Posted by creep
American Vegan Kitchen has a bunch of great TVP recipes. There's a shepherd's pie type thing that uses tater tots instead of mashed potatoes that's insanely awesome.
