  • In a small sauce pan, bring the water to a boil.  Add the dried TVP, turn off the burner, cover the pan, and allow the TVP to soak up the water for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large sauce pan, heat the olive oil on low heat.  Add the red onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes until the veggies begin to soften.  Add the tomatoes with their juice and continue to cook on low for 5 more minutes.
  • Add the TVP mixture and the taco seasoning to the onions, garlic, and tomato, and stir to combine.
  • Taste to season - depending on the taco spice you use you may want more heat, salt, or cumin.
  • Serve the TVP Taco Mix in warmed corn tortillas, adding plenty of fresh toppings such as tomatoes, radishes, cilantro, red onion, or guac.
