    I’ve never made TVP before, but those Joes look yummy!

    How funny, I just finished eating gardein’s “bbq pulled shreds” and was thinking that I really don’t like the flavour of barbecue sauce. Course, I don’t have to risk offending my entire home state by saying so. 😛

    This recipe will have to wait until I’ve moved out of home, though. The mother is allergic to tomato!

    I like your new name for them…cute play on words – Tidy Joes. Also, that almost looks like “spanish rice” burgers. Looks good.

    yum! there is a recipe on the PPK for SNobby joes and I have never made those, but i need to try some vegan sloppy joes for sure!

    I haven’t cooked much with tvp, but I like the concept behind this recipe! Perhaps I’ll try it with crumbled tempeh. 🙂

    McKella & Hannah #2—You should try TVP sometime! It’s ridiculously effortless (not to mention tasty); just mix it with a warm or hot liquid and you’re good to go.

    Hannah #1—Allergic to tomato?! That’s terrible! I can’t imagine; I’m so glad I don’t have any food allergies.

    Angela—The TVP crumbles are very tiny, and though they don’t have the texture of rice, I can see the resemblance in appearance!

    Lizzy—Thanks for finding my blog! I paged through yours last night and I love your positive attitude towards food and fitness. I hope you keep reading :]

    Averie—I haven’t tried the PPK recipe either, but now I’ll have to go check that one out!

    Tomatos, wheat, dairy, beef, peanuts, pineapple, bell peppers, bacon, ham,broad beans, red wine… and that’s not even all the list of her allergies! Luckily, I only got the lactose issue!

    P.S. How did today’s lotto ticket go? 😀

  9. Amber Shea

    Jeezus! The poor woman! (I never thought I’d ask someone else this, being vegan and all, but) what DOES she eat?

    Lotto ticket, right…let me get right back to you on that…

    I am eating this as I type you a comment! It’s pretty good. A little sweeter than I expected, but that’s okay. 🙂

      Actually, not to sound rude or anything, I don’t think I like it as much as I thought I did. But I’m really glad I tried it because I was always wondering! I think if I changed some of the ingredients, I may like it a little better.

    I have just discovered your website, you and your cookbooks and I’m in love!! I have been vegetarian all my life and have crossed back and forth being a vegan for the last ten years. Im in my dirty thirties now so it’s not as easy to keep a slim figure and eat anything I want. Ultimately my goal is to eat healthy and clean without giving up the flavor and the old favorites. I’m so happy to have discovered you because even the old favorites get boring after a while and you seen to have a similar philosophy and so many new great ideas!!! I’m really excited to start trying some of your recipes. The thing is I’m currently living in São Paulo brazil and I have a cook who only speaks Portuguese So my question is do you have your cook books published in Portuguese?? I have been translating recipes for her but it becomes a bit tedious. Or do you distribute your English books in brazil?? Or do you have ebooks? Oh and one more question about this recipe do you add the TVP dry or already moist?
    Thanks I look forward to hearing from you!
