Meg's Mishmosh Meal: Black Bean and TVP Taco Filling (Oil Free Vegan)

  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup mushroom, diced
  • 1 cup cooked black beans
  • 1 cup rehydrated TVP *see note
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin


  1. Add onion to pan at medium-high heat. Cook stirring occasionally until translucent.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to pan and mix thoroughly.
  3. Warm over medium-high heat 5-10. minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add splashes of water as needed to prevent sticking.


  • To rehydrate TVP, simply add equal parts water to TVP and soak for 5-10 minutes until rehydrated (ex. 2 cups TVP, 2 cups water). Drain any excess liquid if needed. I prep a bunch at the beginning of the week to have on hand to add to multiple dishes throughout the week. Keep in mind that TVP expands when rehydrated.
