2 cups (dried, not reconstituted) TVP*
6 Dried Anchos or New Mexico chile or some combination of the two
2 Dried Chipotles, optional, if you want smokey flavor
teaspoon Coriander seeds
3 whls cloves
teaspoon Cumin seeds
1 small Piece cinnamon, about ⅓" x ¾"
8 Cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
2 teaspoons Paprika
2 teaspoons Salt
cup Red wine
cup Oil or more
* TVP = Textured Vegetable Protein, check your local health food stores.
Make sure you don't burn them. Open them and discard seeds and membrane.
Put TVP in a container. Add spice mixture and liquid and pressed garlic.
Variations: Please experiment with the proportions of the spices. Adjust the wine/vinegar/water ratios if you'd like, but keep the liquid total at 1 1/2 cups. Also, using crumbled tempeh or ground seitan instead of tvp would also be intresting.
