Holy crap I have finally made a succesful and perfect and delicious fake chicken salad!!! I used to make a curried TVP one that was okay, but this one is 10000 times better. I adapted it from like 3 different recipes online.
1 cup dry TVP
1 cup water
½ veggie bouillon cube (i used “not chicken”)
tamari (i used low sodium)
1 can of chickpeas
vegan or regular mayo
¼ or so of a medium onion
How to make it:
Bring water, bouillon, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and tamari to a simmer, turn off heat. add dry TVP to liquid, stir and let it set. Once the water is nice and absorbed, add uncooked onion and put in fridge to cool off.
While the TVP is cooling, smash up a can of chick peas to whatever consistency you like. I left quite a few of them whole or only slightly smashed.
Add chickpeas to TVP, pour on some nutritional yeast to taste, and mix together.
Add a small amount of yellow mustard and mayo to whatever consistency you like.
Let cool in fridge if you can wait but i could not. SO GOOD.
As you can see I ate mine on a big ol leaf of lettuce. I also had some on a triscuit. This shit is wonderfulllll.
