Taco Seasoning


My son had the idea that I make up a dry taco seasoning spice mix so it would be easy to turn TVP (textured vegetable protein) or Boca Crumbles into tacos. I am so glad he thought of this, because it has turned out to be a quick and easy way to get dinner on the table. This mix lasts for 3 or 4 meals and is easy to store in a small glass jar.

Taco Seasoning


3 tbsp red chili powder
3 tbsp corn flour
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
dash oregano


Put all ingredients in a small glass jar, put on the lid and shake. Store in a cool dry area.

When you are ready to have tacos, heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, add the Boca Crumbles, and 1/2 cup liquid (water, beer, or vegetable broth are all great). Add 2-3 tbsp seasoning mix to taste, then stir to combine and serve when it is heated through and most of the liquid has evaporated.
