The Classic Vegan Meat: TVP
January 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm$65.00
The first question – What is TVP? TVP is the abbreviation for Textured Vegetable Protein. TVP is a highly nutritious soy product. It’s rich in complete protein and contains no fat, so it is an excellent alternative to meat. TVP is made from defatted soy flour that has been cooked under pressure and then dried. TVP is naturally gluten free. Although TVP doesn’t add much flavor, it’s low in fat and calories, contains a wealth of complete soy protein and it’s a good source of dietary fiber. Soy contains complete protein with all the amino acids essential to human nutrition, which must be supplied in the diet because they cannot be synthesized by the human body. It is also a good source of iron, magnesium and phosphorus.
There are so many uses of TVP but in this class, Chef Nico is going to show you how to create two incredibly versatile dishes that commonly use processed vegan meat substitutes. Let’s learn how to move away from the processed and create your own textures and flavors for half the cost. First, you are going to learn how to make delicious breakfast sausage patties that you can pair with a tofu scramble or build your own breakfast sandwich. Next you will create a classic Bolognese in a homemade marinara sauce. You will be amazed at how easy it is to build these dishes on your own.
**This is a hands-on class. Each person will have their own station to learn alongside with Chef Nico. You can eat or take your creation afterwards. An electronic recipe & instruction card is emailed to you within 72-hours after the conclusion of the class.**
