TVP Tacos

  • Author: Brita Britnell
  • Total Time: 17 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


These TVP Tacos are simple to make, packed with protein, and fully plant based!


  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ½ cup of onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ cups of TVP (textured vegetable protein)
  • 1 ½ cups of veggie broth (or other broth as desired)
  • Taco seasoning packet
  • Optional for serving: tortillas, tomatoes, cilantro, and onion


  1. In a skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Once shimmering, add in the onion and cook for 5 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook for 1 additional minute.
  2. Mix in the TVP, broth, and taco seasoning. Continue to cook over medium heat, stirring often, for about 5 minutes. You want the liquid to be fully absorbed by the TVP.
  3. Remove from the heat and serve! This is great on a salad, tacos, nachos, and more!
