Secret ingredient

I just started using Bob's Red Mill Textured Vegetable Protein ("TVP") as a substitute for meat in a lot of recipes such as in pasta sauce, sloppy joes, tacos etc. and it is great!!  It is basically just dried soy protein.  You rehydrate it for a few minutes and just add it to whatever you are making.  It is fat free and has lots of protein per serving.  It doesn't really have a flavor so it just takes on the flavor of whatever you are making.  It has a subtle texture that you don't really notice.  It is very healthy, easy to use, a great way to add protein to your diet and inexpensive.  I bought a bag of it from Whole Foods for under $4 and you can buy it in bulk online for about $3/bag.
