Yesterday at 5:am I had my first breakfast of fresh juice blended with spinach and frozen pineapple. After my treadmill run I had the rest of breakfast, or second breakfast.
It was sweetly warm and filling, and I was so impressed that I was thinking of variations all day long.
I have been planning to try textured vegetable protein, or TVP, ever since Laura started making “oatmeal” with it. TVP is like a smaller version of my favorite soy curls – it is a defatted soy product high in protein and fiber. Like the soy curl, TVP is cooked or rehydrated with liquid, and it takes on the flavors you use.
In this case, I combined the dry TVP with chocolate mint flavored coconut milk, and it cooked into a hearty bowl of hot cereal a spoon can stand up to. This tasty bowl of goodness is ready in ten minutes.
I cannot wait to make this again. And the seventy threeve other ideas I have in mind…
chocolate mint TVP cereal
inspired by Laura and her TVP oatmeal recipes
dairy, egg, and gluten free, vegan
makes one bowl
1 cup chocolate mint milk (So Delicious coconut)
1/3 cup TVP
1 tablespoon fresh ground flax seed
pinch sea salt
1-2 tablespoons almond butter, as topping
In small saucepan, bring milk, TVP, flax and salt to a boil. Cover and reduce to simmer, stirring every few minutes until milk is absorbed (about 8-10 minutes). Transfer to bowl and top with a swirl of almond butter.
What is your favorite stick with you satisfying breakfast?
