I bought some bulk TVP last night (IT WAS SO CHEAP) but now I'm rather at a loss for how to cook it...! It doesn't help that I have very little food in the house right now. (Soy sauce seems crucial in most of the recipes, and I haven't got any. Won''t have a chance to shop for a few more days.)

If you've got any TVP-based recipes that can be made with minimal ingedients, I'd love to hear them. Or if you just want to share your favorite recipes overall, I can use them as guidelines for my next shopping trip!
Ideas anyone?

do you happen to have the cookbook Vegan comfort food? She has multiple recipes for TVP in that cookbook. I especially like the sloppy joes made with TVP.
to reconstitute, bring 1 cup of water to a boil, usually with some soy sauce in it, and add 1 cup of TVP, cover, and turn the burner off. After about 5 minutes, just fluff it up, then it's ready to use. It's too late now to try to type out some recipes, but I'll check tomorrow if I can.

Here's 4 tvp recipes from Vegetarian TImes http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recip.../?keywords=tvp
here's allrecipes list of tvp recipes under vegetarian listing, some maybe vegan...http://allrecipes.com/Search/Recipes...p&SearchIn=h87

Oh boy, awesome suggestions!! I'm so antsy to go grocery shopping now.

Edit: I just rehydrated some TVP. I simmered together water, salt, fresh ground better, pepper, garlic and onion poweder, a little bit of Italian seasoning, several tablespoons of barbeque sauce, and a shake of mesquite seasoning. Its nnnnggGGHhhhhh so good. I think I'll make meatballs.

no,it's very bland if you try eating it by itself. Definately needs some stronger flavors. It's really more of a texture additive.

are you looking for vegetarian or vegan recipes?

I probably should have clarified that I do add a cup of water to the soup along with the dry tvp. That way, it reconstitutes in the pot without soaking up too much of the original liquids.

I like to make American Chop Suey with it. It's just the reconstituted TVP cooked in canned tomatoes and sauce with onions and garlic and maybe some Italian seasoning, a little salt and some pepper. Cook a pound of elbow macaroni, drain, and mix with the TVP mixture, heat through, and you're done.

Tacos. You can even use those packets of taco seasoning from the supermarket (although you'd wanna check the ingredient list - I could see them having junk you wouldn't want in 'em). Perfect 'no-cook' meal - boil water, mix in taco seasoning and TVP, presto!, tacos. Just scoop it up with chips and you don't even have to mess around with shells.

I wouldn't eat like this every day, but for those days when boiling water is just about all I can manage ... Haven't used TVP in ages, but back when I did ...
