Taco meat

Okay, so I made the TVP taco meat again tonight, and I liked it better this time. It's basically the recipe from The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook. The biggest difference is DO NOT add the sugar. I know sometimes it cuts the acidity - yadda, yadda, yadda. In this recipe, it just adds a weird sweetness that is yucky. Everyone chowed on tonight's dinner, and the kidlets were excited to have it in their bentos tomorrow, so I guess it's a hit! Here's the recipe.
Soak 1 1/2 Cups TVP in 1 1/3 boiling water for 10 minutes.
Saute 1 medium onion in olive oil, then add:
1 14 oz. can tomato sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos
Mix with the TVP and enjoy!

Here's the kidlets bentos for tomorrow!
