Please note: Although I have several recipes that include TVP, it’s not very often that I include it on my personal menus, opting for less-processed foods. When I do want that texture, what I have started doing lately is chopping up soy curls and using that instead. Soy curls are a whole, unprocessed, non-GMO food that gives the same texture as TVP. You can also find non-GMO or organic TVP at many health food stores.
