Magic Bread Bakeshop: Cheap Vegetarian Food & TVP Source
After my often referenced vegetarian food cooking session, I went on a quest for the “strange” vegetarian ingredients, the first one being TVP or Textured Vegetable Protein. Alessa referred me to the Magic Bread Bakeshop, which I later found out also offered some cheap vegetarian eats. Not being of burgers, veggie or non-veggie ones, I didn’t find the food particularly compelling, specially since I went there with one goal in mind: to buy TVP. What’s TVP?

[Last last week, I had my own “Vegetarian Cooking 101”. Not that what we prepared was the most basic of vegetarian fare, but that it was simple enough to do, and that I got some vegetarian cooking fundamentals when I got introduced to Chia Seeds, Nutritional Yeast, Liquid Aminos and TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein).
I also decided to do a wee bit of research on my own, and here’s the super simple low-down (I didn’t go all-out geek, I promise!) for those of you exploring vegetarian fare as well.]
