Comments: Experimenting on My Family

I've been wondering about those black bean brownies too. I hear they are good but just can't quite believe it.

We use TVP a bunch around here, which is less surprising since we're mostly vegetarian. In my experience, you definitely need to have some strong flavors to give it some substance, but it works great. I like that you can keep it dry in the cabinet and use it whenever you need it.

Another sneaky recipe I like is the waffle recipe Meredith posted a while back. They sounded strange, but we love them. http://likemerchantships.blogspot.com/2006/01/blender-batter-waffles.html

I just noticed that you added me to your blog list. Thanks. :)

Hey, Jennifer, that's funny! I think I got that waffle recipe from Jordana.

At the very least she had been making it before me and gave me a lot of advice.

Someone call the Rev. Wright! The MAN is performing experiments on The Children (TM)!

Here's a recipe for Nacho Stuffed Shells we make entirely with what I assume is TVP (local brand here is Morningstar Farms "Crumble"). In our case it's less about health than the TVP is dairy & cheese can be added.

Meat is, oddly enough, not dairy.

You had me until TVP...I suppose if you don't notice it...nope, just sounds yucky.
