Not your mama’s TVP Loaf

29 01 2012


I’m going to keep this short because I’m about to head out the door and go cross country skiing.

1.  This is not your standard TVP loaf.

2.  You could turn the mix into burgers instead of loafing it up.

3.  It’s bruschetta inspired.  And you know how much you love bruschetta.


Bruschetta TVP Loaf

1 cup TVP granules

1 cup vegetable broth

1/2 cup  vital wheat gluten flour

1/2 cup tomato paste

1/2 cup nutritional yeast

1 cup Bruschetta topping (here’s a recipe you can use)

Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350ºF.  Grease a 9 x 9 pan or prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper if you’re making burgers.

Boil vegetable broth in a pot, remove pot from heat, add TVP granules, and allow to sit for at least 10-minutes so that broth can be absorbed.

Combine the reconstituted TVP, gluten flour, tomato paste, nutritional yeast, Bruschetta, and salt and pepper.  Use your hands to really mush it all together.  Press into 9 x 9 pan or form into 6 patties and place on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for  45 minutes if you’re making  a loaf.  If you’re making burgers bake for 15 minutes, then flip and bake for another 15 minutes.

Enjoy with more Bruschetta and steamed greens!
