For dinner last night I made VCF’s Fool Your Friends Tacos. I had been craving tacos since last week, and not refried bean ones either. I wanted all the taste and texture of the meat kind, but without the awful stench and mystery bits. I needed TVP for the job!
This recipe is indeed delicious! I probably could have eaten 5 or 6 tacos if not for the black bean soup I served along side, and my serious self control. I added a little extra liquid smoke to the TVP broth, as well as the taco seasoning. Incidentally, this recipe uses 2 tbsp. of the taco seasoning recipe in the back of the book. It was chili powder, garlic & onion powder, cumin, paprika, cayenne and salt & pepper. I topped them with lettuce, and some of the super hot salsa I made this weekend. Daiya cheddar makes a good topping too. This is definitely one for the permanent rotation, and it was fast & easy. I would love to use this for some awesome nachos too.
Served with black bean soup…
I put the leftovers in with the rest of the black bean soup to make a chili which I ate for lunch today with some brown rice and a vegan cheddar drop biscuit! YUM!
