“I use textured vegetable protien (TVP) a lot when money gets tight. It is a cheap way to get your protien and a lovely substitute for ground beef with out the expense. No, it isn't exactly the same but most people couldn't tell the difference when I didn't tell them it wasn't ground beef. This is a nice way to use tvp crumbles.”
