I made the tvp hot cereal this morning. 1/3 cup tvp, 2/3 cup unsweetened soy milk, a good sprinkling of cinnamon and some sweetener, cooked on low heat for 15 minutes. It was actually quite tasty and VERY filling. This has a good chance of being my new favorite breakfast for a while. I'm going to cook up a big batch and keep it in the fridge.

You can definitely taste that it's tvp not oats, but tvp and sweet flavorings go together much better than you might expect. This would be really good with some raisins or apples, but even without it's surprisingly good.


I'm going to try this with half tvp and half oats. Bobs Red Mill also makes soy grits, which have even more protein than tvp - 19 grams per serving.

Someone should make this cookbook - it's not a diet I would normally follow but during pregnancy I was supposed to be eating fairly high protein (>65g/day, Bradley class tells people to eat something crazy like 100g).

It doesn't look all that different from a 'normal' cookbook. It would have been nice if they took the trouble to list the nutrition values.

Ugh, I hate cookbooks with a black background. I refuse to buy them.

Also my high protein recipe - Soyrizo, mixed with extra firm tofu, mix with a bit of greens (kale is my go to), stir in bowl, cook in microwave, done.

Yeah. Yellow type on white background, recipe directions in boxes, tiny margins, and almost no white space.

What an interesting cookbook. I rely heavily on legumes for my protein and less-so soy. Feel free to check out my blog for the recipes. They are usually 30% protein.

I have very mixed feelings about that site. Vegan Fitness is its more down-to-earth cousin, and I rate that more highly. VBB is sparkly bodybuilders whereas VF is gigantic powerlifters.

I think I'd really just like a big book of fakemeats.

I, too, appreciate high protein cookbooks since I tend not to eat enough protein everyday.

In English, The Great Vegan Bean Cookbook and Tofu 1-2-3 are completely vegan and look like good books. They both incorporate beans/tofu into all kinds of meals, from appetizers to desserts.

For those who read French, books on plant-based protein seem popular in that language. I can't guarantee any of them is completely vegan, but I think they are all vegetarian at least:

Protéines vertes. Contains honey, no other animal products. The only one I own. It is a nice-looking book with quality paper, about 35 recipes and a full-page color picture for every one, but some recipes look weird. I just bought it and haven't had time to try it.
Cuisinons les protéines végétales. 120 recipes, a nice layout but no pictures (well, unless you count a few pictures of ingredients in the middle of the book...)
Pois chiche. Mini book with 14 recipes and no pictures, but mini price too.
Tofu soyeux. Has color pictures.
Laits et yaourts végétaux faits maison. Has color pictures.
Fromages végétaux. Mini book (12 recipes), mini price.
Tofu & Soya. Doesn't contain milk, but I don't know about other animal products.
Tofu rapide et facile. 120 recipes.
Mes petites recettes magiques aux protéines végétales. Contains honey, no other animal products.
Protéines végétales : L'alternative nutritionnelle. It seems to be a book of info on plant-based protein followed by 80 very simple recipes.
Recettes minceur aux protéines végétales. 130 recipes. Health-oriented.
Les protéines végétales. Very short.
Découvrez les protéines végétales. 60 recipes.
Galettes végétales - De bonnes protéines pour une belle forme.

I bought High Protein Vegan on the Kindle but then I returned it. The pictures looked unappetizing. Everything was beige-colored somehow. I think it is a rare case where having pictures puts a book at a disadvantage, because if I had only read the recipe titles, I wouldn't have thought them bland.

The design really is unfortunate.

I've been collecting high-ish protein recipes here. I try to have at least a 2:1 net carbs to protein ratio for the recipes.
