TVP Chicken and Rice

TVP Chicken and Rice No need to soak the textured vegetable protein, TVP, for this recipe. The TVP will soften and swell while simmering in the broth. This makes a rich stew-like dish. There may be no need for salt because Herbes de Provence often contains salt, as do many broth mixtures.

Serves 6.


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 c chopped onion
  • 1 c chopped celery
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Herbes de Provence
  • 1 quart chicken style vegetarian broth
  • 1/2 c TVP chicken strips (dried soya protein)
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 c converted rice
  • 1 c frozen peas
  • salt if needed


  1. In medium pot, heat olive oil and saute onion and celery until softened.
  2. Add garlic and herbs and saute another minute.
  3. Pour in the broth and add the TVP. Bring to boil over medium heat, lower flame, cover and simmer 10 minutes.
  4. Add carrots and rice.
  5. Bring back to boil over medium, lower heat, stir and cover tightly.
  6. Cook 15 minutes, add peas, and continue simmering for another 5 minutes.
  7. Adjust for salt.
