I’m not going to defend the TVP except to say that we were given it, that it was free, and that my husband is currently unemployed and I am trying to eat low-carb. I have tons more healthy, nourishing traditions style recipes on this blog. If this totally geeks you out, search for my better meals.=)
In a cereal bowl or large soup/coffee mug, combine:
• 1/4 C TVP granules
• 1/2 cup coconut milk from a well shaken coconut milk can OR real cream
• 1 T butter or coconut oil (can use more)
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1/8 t nutmeg
• 1 tsp vanilla, maybe a bit more.
• Optional: Whisk 1 egg until it is completely yellow, sort of lemony colored. Whisk this into the TVP mixture
Mix all ingredients in large coffee mug.
Reduce power to microwave to 60% and cook for 6 minutes- stop at 3 minutes and stir well. It may have to cook a little longer- should be like oatmeal.When done, stir in sweetener to taste- jam, fruit, honey, molasses, or, in my case, stevia.
You can also sprinkle with ground flax seeds and extra cinnamon if desired.
