Mushroom/TVP & Pea Rice

Mushrooms have a very robust meaty taste for veggies and so does TVP so when you need a substantial meal- this is the one! Perfect for a cold rainy night and packed with protein and whole grain carbohydrates for long lasting energy and satiety.

Mushroom/TVP and Pea Rice
2/3 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 cup dried (1/2 cup soaked) TVP (textured vegetable protein) 
2 cups Mushrooms
1 spring onion
1/4 cup peas
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp chinese rice wine
1 tsp chinese dark vinegar
  • Cook rice ahead of time and cool in the fridge or run under cold water {this makes sure it's not gluggy and starchy when you use it}
  • Re-hydrate TVP with double the quantity of water (leave it for 1hr if possible)
  • Dry fry spring onions for 1 min
  • Add liquid ingredients and TVP- mix
  • Add rice and mix well
  • Add mushrooms- cook until they reduce to half their original size
  • Keep stirring whilst cooking on a high heat until all liquid is reduced- depending on how you like it you can take it even further for a more 'sticky' rice.
Enjoy! xxx
