Vegetarian Tourtiere By The Canadian Living Test Kitchen I was serving tourtiere for Christmas this year and didn't want DD to be left out. This is the version I made for her. I've included the recipe for a delicious sounding crust but I cheated and used a commercial pie crust. It uses TVP, or textured vegetable protein, which is a dried soy product available in granules or chunks that, when cooked, resemble the texture of ground meat. Look for it in the health food section of grocery stores.
