Cooking with TVP
TVP has so many uses, there is really no way to list them all here. Some uses include: salads, soups, pastas, roasts, snacks, etc. Hamish Bits are great on salads and similar to bacon bits. Add your favorite seasoned TVP products to soups 10 to 15 minutes before the soup is done. Put TVP in other dishes that require a meat-like protein. While hiking on the trail, some of Harmony House’s TVP products make great snacks. Just eat them without rehydrating.
Next time you need a good meat substitute in a recipe, consider textured vegetable protein. The possibilities are limited only by the imagination.
Textured Vegetable Protein is Animal Friendly
According to the USDA, several billion animals are slaughtered every year in the United States for food. This means tens of thousands of animals are killed every hour just so people can eat them. TVP is made from plants, so it gives a wonderful source of protein without the killing. TVP is a kinder food. Harmony House Foods is proud to only sell vegetarian products. With all the news about meat safety today, why not be worry free and eat TVP.
Seasoned TVP is a great way to add flavor and protein without “Bessie” or “Peter Rabbit”.
