This recipe passed the carnivore test with my daughter's boyfriend.
Mix together in a saucepan:
1 1/4 cups cold water
1 Tbsp. sundried tomato bits (dry, not oilpak)
1 tsp. dried minced onions
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. mild chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. sugar or equivalent
2 Tbsp. Bragg's liquid aminos (or 1 Tbsp. soy sauce)
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
Stir until cornstarch dissolves. The stir in:
1/2 cup plain TVP granules
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; stir and simmer until it is of the
desired consistency for tacos, about 2 to 5 minutes.
Put into a taco shell; top with the usual.
Sherry in Oregon
Note: If you don't have sundried tomato bits, chop up some sundried tomato
halves in a food processor. Or make them by cutting Roma or Italian plum
tomatoes in half; dry in a dehydrator until they're dry yet still flexible;
leave them out for a day to "cure;" store, preferably in the freezer. Don't
use any other kind of tomato, as they're too watery and seedy.
