4 ½ OZ. PROTEIN, 1 VEGGIE, AND 1 CARB PER SERVING
1 medium onion, finely chopped
½ bell pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can no salt added tomato sauce *
1 cup dry TVP (Texturized Veggie Protein) granules*
1 tsp no-calorie baking sweetener *
Cayenne Pepper, to taste
Water, for sautéing
Sauté onion and bell pepper in about 1 or 2 Tbl water until almost clear.
Add garlic and sauté for a couple more minutes.
Add tomato sauce, TVP, no-calorie baking sweetener, and cayenne to taste.
Turn down and simmer 5 minutes until TVP is soft. Refrigerated TVP will already be soft, so you are just simmering to marry the flavors and thicken the sauce.
Serve on ½ whole wheat bun or a whole sandwich thin.
