    This sounds really good - I'll post again after I try it. I've never used TVP. I am a whole-food cook (not vegetarian), and TVP sounds a bit "processed", but I'm willing to give it a try. I guess I could just leave it out and use more beans? I love cooking with grains, and just reading a recipe with 2T cumin makes me hungry! Thanks!

    Even though I sometimes make meat chili for the husband I really love chilis that are all veg better. I love the addition of orange juice and maple syrup. I'm going to have to try that!
