I have to agree with you on this. Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) really is pretty good. It's been around for quite a while, though. It certainly
isn't anything new. I had it for the first time about ten years ago. I was invited to a gathering of pagans who were, for the most part
vegetarians. The pot luck dinner served was chili. Bear in mind that I am a carnivore and I love chili. Well, let me tell you, I had two helpings
of that chili. I ate with gusto and was dumbfounded when I was told that there was no meat in the chili at all. I really could not tell the
difference. Even after I learned that there was no meat in the chili and that it had TVP, I still couldn't tell. For all intents and purposes, I
found TVP, at least when used in chili, absolutely indistinguishable from chile made with ground beef. TVP is an excellent product -- one that I
would recommend every meat eater to give a try .
