Here are a few ways i cook with TVP. I use beef and sausage flavored tvp and regular unflavored tvp.

For regular tvp if you can stand eating it, i add it to my mac and cheese or soups.
I make a "stew" with the beef tvp by adding any powdered soup and also adding noodles.
If you get instant mashed potatoes you can add tvp to that.\
The powdered soup with noodles is my favorite tvp application so far.

any other recipes or idea would be great!

If you do a web search for TVP, you will be overwhelmed.

Most of it is from the vegetarian crowd, who in my opinion often have a nasty sense of taste. But some of the recipies I came up with looked good.

vegan-food.net had seveal that looked promising.

vegetarian chorizo sounds good. I have bought the store soyrizo and like it in my usual chorizo and eggs. So making my own "soyrizo" is next on my list of experimental meals for my decidedly not vegan sons, har.

Sounds like if the TVP is properly prepared it is a decent substitute for hamburger and bacon bits depenind on spice mix.

Or beer flavored bacon.

I've used TVP in several FBC recipes that do not focus on the meat. The taco flavored TVP from Harmony Foods is OK as is the chicken flavored.

best use of TVP that I have heard of was to use TVP instead of rock salt in the shotgun shells used to discourage trespassers - TVP does not mess up the gun as much as the rock salt does

well making sure the powders have a good calorie count. Most of the cheesy type stuff, like four cheese and creamy pesto are the best. Key word cheesy or creamy. Pun or no pun...

Eating bacon while drinking beer works for me. :biggrin:

I have used TVP in my custom dry oatmeal to up the protein... I make a batch about once a year and am able to use this all thru the seasons...

I thought the defining character of TVP is the lack of flavor.

Exactly. It doesnt ruin my oatmeal. I put a dab of peanut butter in it after it is heats up.

Don't feel like the lone ranger I had to ask Rock. I forget what the "t" stands for but "vp" is vegetable protein. He said it is like a vegie substitute for hamburger.

It is actually pretty good substitute and a great way to toss protein into a dehydrated or trail food you plan to cook

It's not food....it will never be food. If you can't make it die you shouldn't eat it. Just sayin.:angel:

Health food store has it in several flavors, sizes and shapes.

The rectangular beef shape acts like small sliced beef pieces. Not at all like the gravel shape.

Re hydrate the rectangular shape with enchilada sauce and you are on your way.

Makes me fart like a bull.

Harmony House foods has flavored TVP. Works pretty well in freezer bag cooking. Wouldn't want to eat it alone cause the texture is pretty nasty for me. Works in recipes though.

I have used the unflavored, powdered TVP with a can of Sloppy Mix to make a pretty good mix of Sloppy Joes that tasted just like the stuff made with beef.
