We love vegetarian tacos. Really, it is one of our favorite meals. Since we don’t eat hamburger we use a vegetable source – TVP. Or textured vegetable protein.
This product is made from reduced fat soy beans and is gluten free. The ingredient list only has one ingredient: defatted soy flour. It has 12 grams of protein per 1/4 cup and only 80 calories!
We soak equal amounts of TVP and boiling water and let it sit for about 15 minutes. I then add Simply Organic Taco seasonings to the “meat”. Then heat it up together.
After cutting up all the fixings’ – lettuce, tomatoes, onions, olives – and then adding cheese, sour cream, salsa and guacamole, you have one FABULOUS Taco. Meat eaters cannot even tell the difference. I have served it to them, I know. But I bet your heart can tell the difference.
Another plus? My picky Princess ate 2 tacos by herself. Loves them.
