TVP / TSP - tasty?

rworange | Oct 27, 2006 06:30 AM

Looking at a few cheap-o recipe sites, some people use textured vegetable protein (TVP) aka textured soy protein (TSP).

It doesn't hit me as something that would be tasty. Wikipedia says ...

"TSP can replace ground beef in most recipes, completely or partly. It can also replace up to 33% tuna fish in tuna salad. It is high in protein and low in fat and sodium. It is also a good source of fiber and isoflavones."

A couple of years ago a request for info got a mainly negative response with one person saying you have to know how to cook it.

So is this stuff any good? Just how cheap is it?
