I've never tried it. Is the texture similar to tofu? I don't like the "squishness" of tofu, but will eat it breaded and baked, pan seared or in stir fry. I'd be interested in trying TVP as another source of protein. Could you get it at Trader Joe's? We don't have many other store around here that carry vegetarian/vegan friendly foods.

I am apparently allergic...kind of a bummer as I actually like the stuff. Ive had reactions to soy milk as well. It must be from the concentration of soy as I can eat other stuff with some soy in it without a problem.

Can't eat it plain. It has to go into spaghetti sauce or chili but it is a very flexible product to use.

I just made a HUGE batch of chilli with it this afternoon, cuts so many calories and tastes just as good and saves me making two kinds of dishes for me (meat eater) and my vegetarian fiancÚ.

We love it! I use it to replace hamburger and I even BBQ it. This lets me serve and satisfy a meaty GF hubby and Vegetarian wife. It amazes me how easy it absorbs spices and thus allows for use in many ways and dishes. I recommend keeping this soy product and cut soy intake in different places as this "comfort food" is so adaptable.

Another poster was asking about ground turkey and it got me thinking about another ground meat substitute, Texturized Vegetable Protein.

I love it, I use it in vegetarian chili and most people don't notice the difference. I also combine it with ground turkey and season with taco seasoning for Mexican dishes. It's cheap too. I can double my seasoned meat servings for very little cost.

Getting ready for my first 5k!
