It’s that time of the week when you’re running out of groceries and you have little to no options. We had a can of diced tomatoes, some vegetable protein I had in the back of my cabinet, and some pasta. So this became the stupid easy vegan cooking with Exning blog edition.
Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) is a textured soy product and is often used as a meat replacer. You do not have to have this, but since I had it in my cabinet, and I’m always looking for protein, I figured I would experiment with it now. You can buy it here from Bob’s Red Mill if you’re so inclined.
A can of organic diced tomatoes makes a lot of leftovers, so feel free to make it a family dinner!
- 1 can organic diced tomatoes
- 1/2 cup TVP
- 1 chopped bell pepper
- fresh herbs
- a clove chopped garlic
- salt, sugar, and pepper
Slow cook for 40 minutes and make your pasta separately. Look at how delicious!
