Textured Vegetable Protein, TVP, Tacos
Most tacos are made using turkey, Asada, carnitas, and beef. If tacos are an impromptu part of your camping meal, you could substitute these using TVP.
Textured Vegetable protein is the easiest taco recipe. It is made from soy flour and has a similar texture to beef. In addition, TVP is fat-free and inexpensive. While using TVP, it is essential to note that TVP is flavorless. It will only take on the flavor of whatever seasoning you use.
- 3/4 cups of water
- One tablespoon of taco seasoning
- 1/2 tablespoons of dried minced onion or one teaspoon of onion powder
- 1 cup of Textured Vegetable protein
- One can of drained black beans
- Six corn tortillas
Start the campfire and reduce the heat to the barest minimum. Preferably, you could use an electric stove. Ensure that your AceVolt Campower 2000 solar generator is nearby so that you can power your stove effectively. Boil the water, taco seasoning, and onion. Afterward, add the TVP. Once the TVP has absorbed the liquid, add the drained black beans. Cover the combination and cook on low heat.
Stir the mix at intervals to ensure that the filling does not scorch at the bottom of the pot. In addition, ensure that the seasoning fits your taste. Get your pan and heat your tortillas with some oil. Afterward, remove the filling from the heat. Build your tacos and garnish them with your favorite toppings. Share your tacos with your camping partners and accompany them with your favorite drink.
