Cajun Red Beans and Rice, with TVP
      05/11/04 06:38 PM

Hello All
I just made the recipe from the back of a bag of TVP, and I thought it was good enough to share. It is pretty spicy so if you don't like that, or are sensitive to it, cut it back a little. I also thought it could use some salt.
Here it is:

Red Beans and Rice -- a no-fat cajun treat, vegetarian style

Overnight in 6 cups of water, soak 2 cups dried red beans, kidney beans, or pinto breans. Drain and rinse well.
Cook beans in a kettle with:
1 large onion, chopped
6 large cloves garlic, mashed
2 quarts boiling water

After beans have cooked 45 mn, add:
2 cups TVP granules (the dehydrated variety)
3 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1 Tbsp. Cumin
Continue cooking beans until tender, 20-40 minutes. Most of the liquid should have cooked into the beans and TVP. Taste and add salt.

Meanwhile, cook brown rice according to package directions:
1 cup Brown Rice (Basmati or Short Grain)
2 cups Water
1 tsp. Salt
Mix the cooked rice and beans, taste, add a pinch of cayenne or hot sauce if desired.

As I said, it was spicy but at the same time a teeny bit bland, if that's possible. I think I am just getting used to the taste of TVP (or the non-taste) and I think next time I will cook this in vegetable broth instead of water.


I live in the Big Apple, but I don't eat the skin
