    Hey!

    I was curious if you have any good vegetarian recipes that don’t contain TVP (anything with soy I can’t make).

      Are you allergic to soy? I hear that fermented soy is better for you…tempeh, miso. I have a few recipes in my food category that don’t use soy. For other meat substitutes, (if you don’t have gluten problems), for years I have used a recipe from a book called Incredible Edibles by Erriane Hullquist (http://astore.amazon.com/homemspensi-20/detail/1572581352). You can find variations on this recipe on the internet. Basically it is a combo of gluten four, chickpeas, seasonings, and water, baked or boiled for 40-60 min. Also, if you check out my blogroll, The Vegan Coach, and The Confessions of a Gothic Homemaker probably have some good ideas. Hope this helps a little. It’s a big topic to cover.

    Hey Jb – will you send me your email address? I have a question about stevia.

    PS I just now saw your comment about soy! Thanks! I am allergic to that and corn so I try to stay away a bit.

    I didn’t get it. I checked my spam folder as well.

    I just wanted to know if there is a big difference in Stevia products. I ordered powdered Stevita and don’t like it (think it has the “diet aftertaste”).

    Do you think NuNatural liquid would be better?

      Strange you didn’t get it. Sorry about that.
      I’m not a big expert on Stevia, but I have used it for many years so I can tell you what I’ve figured out. I’m not sure about other specific brands but I’ve always used NuNaturals. I think it all depends on what you are using it for. For baking or cooking I would use the powder and put it in before the cooking process. That seems to help get rid of aftertaste. You can use approximately 1 teaspoon to replace 1 cup of sugar. You might need to adjust the volume of other ingredients. I never use Stevia as the only ingredient in baking. I try to replace about half of the sweetener with Stevia and then use things like honey or agave for the other half. Two reasons for that: 1. using only Stevia leaves you with a strong aftertaste, and 2. Stevia doesn’t brown your baked goods. Now, if you just want to have a cup of tea, I recommend the liquid…just 4 or 5 drops. I don’t seem to get an aftertaste with that, but the flavor is different than sugar or honey.
