Meaty, spicy, veggie soup

Soooooo simple! I had veggies in the fridge and didn't know what to make for dinner.. so I threw this together.


TVP of any texture
Celery, sliced
Carrots, sliced
Fresh tomatoes, diced
Broth (premade or dried)

Cook your TVP as per directions: (Usually, one part TVP to two parts water. Cook until soft and all water is absorbed. You can add spices or soy sauce at this point but it's not required for this recipe.)

You can stir-fry it in some oil to add some fat. Don't be afraid to do this -- especially if you're feeding meat-eaters. TVP doesn't have fat in it so if you want it, you have to add it. So, why not add a healthy fat like olive oil?

Get a pot big enough to make however much soup you need. Add the right amount of broth. This is easy if you buy veggie bullion from veganessentials. It's our favorite! Add water, mix your dried broth. Easy peasy.

Stir in sliced veggies, cooked TVP and any extra spices. I always add cayenne because I love my food with a kick. Mix 23ll. Let the spices sink into your veggies and TVP. Then serve! It's a big hit.

Easy, tasty, healthy and low-fat!
