Mustard Marinated Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) Cutlets


  • 15-20 big TVP chunks or cutlets
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup mustard
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 3 + garlic cloves minced or chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • a couple teaspoons mustard seeds optional
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs optional


  • Soak the TVP chunks/cutlets in boiling water and then squeeze them to get as much of the water out as possible.
  • Mix or blend all the marinade ingredients together.
  • Throw all together in a Tupperware and shake to cover.
  • Let marinate in the fridge for at least a few hours, overnight is even better.
  • Grill, saute, eat in a sandwich, whatever...I started eating them raw by the end.
