Spicy Spaghetti with TVP


I have started tracking my meals & activity on MyFitnessPal.com & with my FitBit Tracker. One of the things I need to do to track my meals is to create recipes that reflect the correct calories, protein, sodium, etc. You just input the ingredients on My Fitness Pal & tell it how many servings, the site figures out the rest.

Last night I made my super easy Spicy Spaghetti with TVP. It is my go to meal when I don’t have a lot of time (or am feeling lazy. I’m entering the recipe on MFP anyway, so I thought why not share it here as well!

1 Can Diced Tomatos (15 oz, I use Basil, Garlic & Oregano)
2 Cans Tomato Sauce (15 oz)
1 Cup Dry TVP (Texturized Vegetable Protein)
1 Tbsp Garlic powder
1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 Box Thin Spaghetti (Made With 100% Semolina)

Put Diced Tomatoes, Tomato Sauce, TVP, Garlic Powder & Cayenne Pepper in a skillet, stir together & cover. Cook at medium heat while preparing pasta.

Cook pasta as directed.

Serve… YUM!

It’s coming…

Here I am!  I started this site because I saw a need for more information about vegan options in my area (the South Bay of Los Angeles, specifically Redondo Beach.)  As a recent vegan (May 2011), I have found certain websites invaluable, especially for eating out.  Some of my favorites are Quarrygirl, Happy Cow & Barnivore.  I also enjoy exploring the recipes others are creating, as I love to cook.  My style of cooking is generally to throw it all together & see what tastes good, so another purpose of this site will be to share my own personal recipes.  I also love festivals & the like, so if you are hosting one or know of one nearby email me!
