Bob's Red Mill TVP® Texturized Vegetable Protein -- 10 oz
Great stuff - don't be scared, try it...it's good!
At first I was very leary of this stuff...after going veg my sister gave me some and it sat in my fridge for months before I finally tossed it. I wasn't convinced of the whole "it takes on any flavor" thing (just like tofu), this took me a minute to get used to...BUT THEN, after spending tons of money on the store bought frozen "crumbles", my brain FINALLY realized this was the SAME STUFF (but cheaper - yaaay!) and why was I buying it frozen this whole time when I could be making it fresh whenever I needed it...and good thing too, it seems most of the stores I shop at no longer carry my frozen brand (boca) crumbles any more, just morningstar and they're not vegan (boooo!). Long story short, I make this with my no-beef (vegan) broth and then make it into tacos...love it! Don't be scared, it's not bad all all. I stock up on this stuff now, it's a vegan staple in my house!

this product is good quality
As a vegetarian I am mindful of getting enough protein. This TVP is not only high in protein but has a wonderful flavor. My meat eater boyfriend likes it too !!

One of the Best Protein Extenders Ever!
I absolutely LOVE Bob's Red Mill TVP. I use it in my spaghetti sauce along with the lean ground beef but can cut the amount of meat in half. TVP takes on the flavor of whatever you use it in. I also use it in meatloaf. It is good for you and extends any ground meat recipe including ground chicken and turkey. I wouldn't want to cook without TVP in my kitchen. Your price is good and the product stays fresh in an airtight container on my kitchen shelf. Please always carry this wonderful product. Good alone in sauces on whole grain noodles for vegetarians!

Good Product for Healthy Living
I was looking for something that would take awhile to eat as well as being high in protein, but low in fat. Seems like this fit the bill rather well. I typically mix it in with my cereal and just eat it like that. The taste isn't too terrible once you successfully trick your brain that it "is" cereal. It pretty much takes on the flavor of whatever you put it in.
I have not tried to cook with it though. Good source of protein for very little money.
