Default Texutred vegetable protein?

Soooooo...I have no idea what this is or what to do with it, but I have 2 bags of it. It was on sale for $1 a bag at Dillons, and I know I need more protein since I'm donating plasma twice a week and my protein levels have been steadily dropping.

So, any ideas what to do with it?

it's basically bean curd (tofu) but may have the bean still in it instead of being just the soy milk curd.

You'd think they could come up with a more appetizing name for it than that LOL

Being ignorant of this sort of thing, I looked it up. It looks like malformed rice crispies, so possibly it will taste good with milk.

Maybe find a tofu meatloaf recipe and use it in that, since it's pre-crumbled.

That just sounds repulsive. 'Textured vegetable protein'? No word in that sentence even rhymes with tasty, much less is synonymous.

Well yeast extract doesn't sound exactly tasty either, but it's SO FREAKING GOOD!

"Meat"loaf sounds like a good idea...

When I was a super poor college student, I used to cook it with ramen. Then I discovered eggs poached in ramen is much tastier and just as cheap.

ETA: I used to make homemade chili with it too. Dried beans, spices, chop up an onion and stuff, add the TVP. Wow I'm sooo glad not to be a vegetarian any more.

Lol I wouldn't survive very long as a vegetarian...and I would probably die of starvation if I was a vegan. I have a giant pot roast ready to go into the crockpot in the morning, I'm SO excited about it

I can eat cardboard (or textured bean whatever) with A-1 sauce on it. Maybe you can stir fry it?

Ramen egg drop carbohydrates....MMMMM. I love it, my kids do too.

Veggie protein? Sounds like a horse suppliment.

TVP.... AKA, Taco Bell "beef". Ever eat at Taco Bell? Had a "ground beef" anything? You have had TVP.

Not that it is bad or anything. Just sayin.
