Submitted by: NADALIA

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 C TVP granules
    1 quart unsweetened soy milk (can use coconut milk or other milk)
    1 T cinnamon
    1 t nutmeg
    1.5 T vanilla
    1/4 C Splenda

Directions

Mix all ingredients in large saucepan. Bring to boil, then simmer for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally - you should know by looking when it's done. It should look thick like traditional oatmeal.

Can also be made in a crockpot:
It will be cooked in about 2 hours on high or 4 hours on low, but you can let it go longer and it won't hurt it.

Makes 6 large bowls.

    Loved this. Added chopped up apples and let cook for 2hrs in crockpot. Will add a bit more of the spices next time. I also just made it with water (no milk) and it still tasted great. Texture was fantastic as well, just like oatmeal. - 10/28/10

  • First time I tried TVP anything. Yes, it's reminiscent of oatmeal. It has a similar texture and flavor. But it's really just absorbing the flavors of what you put in it. I gave it three stars for allowing me to try something other than eggs, meat & cheese for breakfast. - 7/6/12

  • One of the best recipes I tried. Texture is like oatmeal. I put some pb2 and flaxseeds in it, used unsweetened almond milk. And instead of splenda I cooked it with Stevia. This will be a regular oatmeal substitute in my house! - 1/31/12

  • I made a batch in my crock pot, I added flax meal and rasins. Everyone in my household loved it...Even my 5 year old. People thought I had the best potpourri in-town. - 2/2/10

  • Look forward to trying this. Currently I am mixing TVP steel cut oats and ground flax and find it tastes great. - 1/17/10

  • Not too bad; I added a tablespoon of natural peanut butter to help drown out the TVP flavor, and that made it quite tasty. Unfortunately, too much TVP makes me sort of sick to my stomach, so I probably won't try it again. - 4/16/09
