This recipes makes 4 sandwiches.
TVP Pulled Pork Sandwiches 1 cup Textured Vegetable Protein 7/8 cup of boiling water 1 medium onion, diced 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1 tbs flax oil
1 tsp Braggs Liquid Aminos
2 cups shredded cabbage (or a bag of coleslaw vegetables) 1/2 cup Veganaise 1 tsp Dijon mustard 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar Squeeze of lemon juice Salt and pepper, to taste
Additional BBQ, to taste
4 hamburger buns or rolls
In a large bowl, add the TVP and pour the boiling water. Add the 1/4 cup BBQ, flax oil, and liquid amigos. Stir together well. Set aside for 15 minutes
In another large bowl, mix together all the remaining ingredients—except the BBQ and bun— to make the coleslaw. Cover and place in the fridge to chill.
Once the TVP is rehydrated, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and TVP mixture to the skillet. Cook until the onions are translucent and the liquid is mostly gone.
Add additional BBQ to the TVP if you like for more flavor.
Time to assemble! Place a big scoop of the TVP mixture on the bottom bun, top with a big scoop of your chilled coleslaw and top with the rest of the bun.
Sweet, tangy, and satisfying! No reason you have to feel left out this summer at a BBQ.
