    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a saucepan, bring water, bouillon, sugar and seasonings to a boil. Add TVP and turn heat off. Let stand for 15 - 20 minutes. Drain any excess liquid.
    2. 2
      Saute soaked, drained TVP in a little oil until lightly browned. The TVP "Chicken" is now ready to be used in any dish in place of cooked chicken. Refrigerate unused portions. Can be frozen.
    3. 3
      Suggestions: Pot pies, gravies, soups, stews, pita bread sandwiches, a la kings, patties (mix with breadcrumbs), stir-fries, etc.
    4. 4
      NOTE: Large chunks of TVP do better simmered in the liquid, not just soaked. Simmer over low heat for 15 - 20 minutes. Liquid should be absorbed, and chunks should be tender. If chunks are not yet tender, add more water and bouillon.
    5. 5
      If you want to shape them, I would not drain, I just a little flour and shape.

      This is a tough one for me to rate. It was super easy to make and smelled just like chicken. The taste was pretty good, but I just cannot get past the texture of tvp. I keep hoping that I can find a recipe to get me past it, but no luck. That said, I think this would be a really good recipe for new vegetarians or people who are already used to tvp.

      Until now I've been using frozen veggie chicken patties and burgers, but I decided I wanted to try making some of my own. I halved the recipe, but I wasn't sure whether I ought to shorten the cooking time... I think I let it stand for about fifteen minutes, but that was probably too long, as I was going to shape it and so I needed some of the liquid. I replaced the sugar with Splenda and the celery seed with mustard powder. After soaking, I added an egg white, a tablespoon of oat bran, and added some spices -- garlic salt, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper... I think that's it! I shaped them into two patties, which fell apart a bit at first -- probably because there wasn't enough liquid! -- but after I baked them at 350 for about 20 minutes, they were fine. Thanks for posting!!
