Most of the time, I kinda cringe at using meat names to describe my vegan recipes. But with this recipe for Sweet and Sour Vegan TVP, it was just so ridiculously similar that I got the "Are you sure this doesn't have meat?" remark from my roomies and partner. I always get some weird satisfaction when people are "surprised" that what I've made is plant-basd, it's proof that you really can have your cake and eat it too.
I am definitely guilty of endulging in greasy chinese food, well I WAS guilty. Now whipping something like this up takes less time than waiting for the delivery guy and is about a gazillion times healthier. Plus I don't have to explain to the guy that no meat, no egg, no gluten and no MSG are vital to me actually even remotely enjoying the food. SO hey, win-win when you get the awesome taste of chinese cooking, without all the added things that make your stomach do backflips (not the good ones).
Don't let the long ingredient list shock you, it's mostly pantry basics that come together to make a delicious sauce.
