You can try this or this or this or this or this or this. Lots of options. This subreddit is also a great place to come for ideas.

Go to an Indian foods store and buy a few of the foil packed heat and eat meals along with a bag of soya chunks.

I do this before I go on motocamping trips. They last forever, are cheap as can be, and taste great.

TVP and homemade seitan. Homemade seitan is water + wheat gluten flour + salt and spices to taste. Boil.

Seitan is basically pure protein at 4.9 calories per gram and TVP is 6.6.

stuff like this:

it stores well, and to use, just add hot water, let it sit, and do anything you like, like adding to a stir fry,

You can absolutely cook ramen noodles in the microwave; I've done it tons at work. Put the noodles in the water, nuke for 5 minutes or more until done. Then either drain the water and just use the sauce packets to make flavored noodles, or leave some of the water and add the stuff you want.

Things you can add: amazon has dried veggies - you probably don't need the 120 servings package unless you're trying to make ramen for your whole unit, but there's other smaller packages like this sampler or you can get the stuff you like in individual packages (mushrooms, corn, carrots, etc). I found I like the cabbage because it ends up being a little bit sweet.

I don't know where you're gonna get eggs in the desert, but maybe your chow folks could hook you up? Hard boiled are good but if you can get raw, you can microwave them too - stir them up in a small bowl with whatever spices you like in your eggs (I have a sweet tooth so I add half a spoonful of sugar and some garlic and basil). Then nuke for 45 seconds, stir, nuke again for 35 seconds, stir, make sure they're cooked. You can dump them in the soup or have them as a side.

The other thing might be - do you guys have a chow hall that does a salad bar? Maybe ask the cook if you can have a spare carrot, or something. Chopped carrots in ramen are delicious and colorful. Never underestimate the delight a nice colorful meal can bring you on a miserable shift. It only lasts about 5 minutes, but damn, that's 5 minutes life isn't boring.

They do dried textured vegetable protein, or you can add jerky to your ramen for some meat flavor. Jerky was the first thing I learned to drop into ramen after cheese. Speaking of cheese, you can get one of those bottles of shelf-stable cheese and melt that into the ramen if you want it creamy. You can make a nice version of cream of mushroom soup that way. There's a whole section on mushroom powder if you don't feel like soaking whole mushrooms. Alternately, cheese powder. Be careful though; it can be wicked salty.

There's also a whole section of powdered soups that includes some wild stuff - you can make a nice curried pumpkin soup out of the pumpkin powder, if you want. It would probably be good on noodles too.

I know liquids are more expensive to ship, but a bottle of shrichana or some hoisen sauce make good flavors for the noodles for when you get solidly tired of the crap in the packets. I love hoisen sauce on my noodles.

Anyways, I don't know if those ones I linked are the cheapest ones - shop around on Amazon, or contact individual sellers and ask if you can get a military discount, maybe?

Good luck!

One of my favorite cooking items is TVP and TVP chunks. They don't taste like anything on their own, they take on the flavor of what they're cooked in. The granules are really good substitute for ground beef in taco filling, gravy, hamburger helper type recipes, anything. The chunks make a really good chicken substitute. Reconstitute some and add it to a crock pot of ranch dressing, buffalo wing sauce, and cream cheese and eat with Fritos. Holy shit it's good.

Also, of course, there's all kinds of beans, nuts, dairy if she eats that, eggs if she eats that, those sorts of things.

Iron is sometimes difficult for vegetarians too, one quick fix for that is to cook in cast iron, which increases iron content by a crazy amount.

Since I went vegetarian, my cholesterol dropped from 213 to 163 without any other changes in my diet or lifestyle. I don't get sick any more, I'm not deficient in any nutrient, I feel fantastic.

Also head over to /r/vegetarian, lots of good recipes there.

u/rodion_kjd · 2 pointsr/AskCulinary

My mistake. I missed the "soy protein" qualifier in OP's post. I suppose it could be large TVP chunks hydrated and then seared.

u/seriouslyslowloris · 2 pointsr/VegRecipes

I just found some on amazon so I could try this recipe out.

You can also check for "textured vegetable protein" chunks.

I reckon you mean TVP, tofu, soy chunks, and seitan. Those are probably not available at most Wal*Marts. TVP and soy chunks are dry and non-perishable, you can order those online from Amazon.

If you live near a health food store like Whole Foods, they will have all the foods I mentioned. But it will be more expensive than ordering online or shopping at an Asian market. If you live anywhere close to an Asian market, as a vegetarian that will be your best source for buying cheap foods in bulk. Even if it’s a 2 hour drive, it’s probably worth it, you can go once a month and get a month’s worth of food.

I live in India. Here, everybody buys their dry foods in bulk once a month. Rice, flour, beans, lentils, soy chunks, cooking oil, spice mix, etc. That’s the most economical option and you’ll know that you always have plenty of food at home.

>what do you usually snack on

I was raised not to snack, so I don’t feel the urge outside of meal times. If I do feel peckish mid-day, I drink a few glasses of water. If you are prone to snacking, sugary drinks and salty snacks are your enemy.

Instead, try some fresh vegetables. Like long slices of cucumber, carrot, celery, daikon, radish, or broccoli – which you can combine with yogurt dip, hummus, cheese cream, dijon mustard, salsa, etc. Another option is unsalted popcorn with nutritional yeast. Or have some 0% fat FAGE Greek yogurt, mixed with equal parts of water. It’s delicious on its own and doesn’t need any sugar.

I order many things from Amazon with free Prime shipping. My favorite is Textured Vegetable Protein Chunks which are fantastic in chili. They also have the crumbles from Barry Farm. Link below.

I also make vegan cheese with is easier than you think using the Miyoko book The Homemade Vegan Pantry: The Art of Making Your Own Staples. You can get supplies from Barry Farm too.

It's TVP. I found something similar on Amazon. In my country we don't have any mock-meats and this is the only thing we can use.

u/req16 · -1 pointsr/IAmA

It looks like what I was seeing was this premade seitan. I did not refer to the cost of beans vs chicken.

How do they create vital wheat gluten in the first place? I'm sure it's some amount of processing seeing how anything in flour form is processed by definition.

I'll add that I have eaten seitan before in nicer restaurants and I did enjoy it. But really, this is moot as I would much rather eat pea or rice whey than seitan if I ever went vegan.

You didn't really address my reply to your chicken vs black bean comparison. It's not as simple as you're wanting it to be. To add to that, 6oz of black bean has 39g of prot while 6oz of chicken has 42g of prot, so even your initial comparison is wrong when using weight instead of volume for I(and others typically) weigh my food, I don't look at volume. I didn't actually address quinoa or corn, both are not my definition of high in protein, requiring 6g of protein per oz of food. I think legumes are the only vegetarian option that meets my definition of high protein.
