I've actually created a few recipes on spark using this.... The best one was a roasted vegetable casserole. Delicious!

It's hard for me to drive the 3 hours to buy the stuff. I like using it in veggie burgers for the texture or in vegan chili, or spaghetti sauce. They don't really have a taste but take on the flavor of whatever you are cooking. A half a cup really swells up (like rice) when put in hot liquid.

Tryagain99, tvp is textured vegetable protein, which can substitute for ground meat. Some say it's too processed, but I want to try it.

Thanks to all. I found it at Meijers. With the other Red Mill stuff (also educated a store clerk when he had to look it up--he'd never heard of it). Same with tahini when I was looking at Walmart!

Soy curls are also a good option if you can't find TVP. Or tempeh, mince it up and you're good to go.

Good evening all! Spent a lot of my afternoon cooking up some nice vegan recipes. Veggie tofu stir fry with faro and brown rice! I am taking my vegan lifestyle 1 day at a time,and DH has agreed he would like to change his lifestyle also once he has eaten up the foods we have he will slowly transition to a veg/vegan lifestyle. I need to get off my T2 diabetes drugs and he needs to get off Lipitor and BP meds! Diane

Where in the grocery store do I find granulated TVP?
