    I'm mostly a bean and tofu person, but on a whim I bought my first bag of TVP. Now I'm trying to figure out what to do with it? Anyone have TVP recipes they like?

    Don't try to do a straight substitution for mince and expect it to taste the same. It just doesn't compare.

    Vegetarian Turkish Pide is a recipe I got off the back of the box so it should be reasonable. I haven't tried it yet.

    Make sheperd's pie!

    Boil your dried TVP pieces in "beef" bouillon until done. Strain, mince. Heat oil in a skillet and fry onions and tvp mince together. When onions are translucent, add Braggs, garlic powder, HP sauce and nutritional yeast flakes until you find a mix that you really like. Assemble as you would your favorite version of the recipe - my mother always had meat on the bottom, creamed corn in the center and potatoes on top wheras my husband prefers having the meat and veg (grated carrots, zucchini, peas and tomatoes) mixed in with the tvp and potatoes on top.

    Other than for sheperd's pie, we only use tvp for making mock haggis for Robbie Burn's day.

    Thanks! Both those sound really tasty-- I'll try them both.

    I use mine when I make chili to make a rich thick meat feel for the husband who misses that. Be careful on the amount of TVP. You can end up with very "Meaty" chili.

    To make up for it in his I use liquid smoke.

    If you're lacto-ovo, Vegetarian Parmesan Cutlets are very good. My mom will even eat them, and she is a very picky meat eater.
