Versatile Tuscan TVP

Submitted by: FORTHOUGHTS

Introduction

I wanted a good, easy, versatile recipe for Textured Vegetable Protein, so I looked through my old issues of Chatelaine till I found this recipe for ground beef, then substituted it with TVP. I'm honestly surprised about how good it turned out...for pasta sauces, meatballs, meatloaf, the works!

Note: The egg is the only non-vegetarian ingredient, but I'm pretty sure you can substitute it with 1 tbsp ground flaxseed.
