We loooove anything with spice, so naturally Latin food appeals to us. This was a quick weeknight meal, consisting of a Mexican rice, curdito salad and slow-simmered tvp in a chile tomato sauce.
The rice and curdito are from Viva Vegan by Terry Hope Romero, and the tvp is my adaptation of kmouse’s Chile con “Carne”. I basically followed her recipe, except the sauce consisted of jarred tomato sauce, chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce to taste, cumin and garlic powder, and I simmered it on low heat for about 20 minutes to make sure the tvp really soaked up the flavour. It was delicious!
