I’ve just started cooking with TVP (textured vegetable protein). It’s a great basic for anyone trying to go meatless. This recipe is very easy, warming and delicious.
1 cup TVP
7/8 cup boiling water
1-3 cloves garlic, minced (depending on size of cloves and how garlicky you like your chili)
1 1/2 onions, chopped
2 T canola oil
1 15 oz can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2-4 T chili powder, to taste
Cover TVP with boiling water and let sit one hour to absorb liquid.
Heat oil in large skillet, cook onions until they start to become translucent. Add garlic and saute another minute or 2. Add prepared TVP, tomatoes, chili powder and beans and cook approximately 30 minutes until all the flavors combine.
Serve hot over rice.
Approximately 4-6 servings.
1 28 oz can peeled tomatoes with the liquid
