Brown Rice Mushroom "Risotto" with Textured Vegetable Protein
This is a more modern adaptation from a recipe in Martha Rose Shulman's Fast Vegetarian Feasts. The original recipe called for soy flakes; while this protein-rich staple is still offered in stores today, many feel that TVP lends itself better as a filling, "meaty," and flavor-soaking addition to this very unique and interesting dish. Additionally, the original recipe called for a Marmite or Vegemite type of product (yeast extract); however, this substance contains free glutamates and is essentially used like MSG. Thus, this adaptation uses nutritional yeast for a vitamin (especially B-12) boost and a mild, cheesy flavor that is nicely enhanced by the subtle creamy texture of this classic Italian adaptation. Enjoy, and feel free to comment on any substitutions used in your own versions!
