TVP burritos!

Another not-so test post from Flickr. I really dig how the Flickr images appear, but don't like posting one photo at-a-time. Anyone know how to change that?

This is a tvp burrito, waiting to be rolled. The stuff that looks like mustard is really PPK testing cheez sauce, spicy style. There is also baby spinach, hot sauce and some leftover brown rice. The burrito is a whole wheat one from Garden of Eaten' organics.

For the tvp, I rehydrate it, then basically pan fry it, and eat it.
Recipe (based on one from the common ground grocery website)

1 cup dry tvp
1 cup boiling water
3 tablespoons braggs, soy sauce, shoyu..
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 chopped jalapeno (I leave the seeds in)
2 cloves minced garlic
freshly ground black pepper
good dash each of oregano and cumin
3 teaspoons at least of taco seasoning (I use frontier organics in bulk)

Pour the water onto the tvp, and let sit for 10 minutes, until the water is absorbed. Sautee the garlic and jalapeno in the oil (can add chopped onion if you're into that) for 4-5 minutes. Stir in the tvp, braggs or soy sauce type item, spices and cook for 5 more minutes. Add more spices to taste. I don't like it *too* mushy so I cook it for about 10 minutes more, adding a little more oil if needed.

That looks awesome. Now I want a burrito. And once again I missed out on the recipe-testing action. Grr.

I'm not going to lie, Flickr scares me a little.

You can upload multiple pics to Flickr at a time. I use a downloadable app called Flickr Uploadr. I'm 90+% sure I got it from the Flickr site, so I'd poke around their page a little.

BTW, I'm a brand new reader, havign followed a link from Squirrel's Vegan Kitchen, and from what I've seen so far, I like your site.

vegancore I am delighted to hear from you, and you should know it! I'm sorry you missed out on the recipe testing, but at least you have more time for school, right? Gross, I wish you luck with it all!

Flickr overwhelms me, but I'm slowly getting a hold of is a whole nother world.

Notmai - Thank you for wandering over and posting~
I'll look into the applications, I know you can uploud more than one at a time, but I want to do the 'post to a blog' option and it keeps the photos small and only does one at a time..hmmmm

Hi Jess!
I have a TVP question. I got some big (chicken nugget-sized) TVP chunks on our trip to Croatia this summer (weird, i know). Now they are sitting in my cupboard and I don't know how to use them. Do I just soak them for a while like you did? Will they have any flavor? I've never used TVP, so this is all new to me!
