Textured Vegetable Protein. A lot of vegans put it in chili dishes or other dishes where ground meats are used. On it's own, it tastes like cardboard. I found that within the chili, it didn't do much but make it almost resemble a meaty chili. TVP is an isolated soy protein (something not very good for your body, anyway) I stick to loads of beans to get the protein missed from le meats.

well, not quite. both contain isolated soy proteins, but the TVP is particularly worse for you because of all the extra processing it goes through.

When I was living in a vegan house, we used to make "tofu scramble". Basically, you take a block of tofu, crumble it up into a skillet, add some tumeric to make it yellow, and throw in some veggies for color and actual flavor. Ick. I loves me some real eggs.

edit: this is a quick (read: better) explaination on the differences.

Instead of TVP, just throw some brewers yeast on it to give it that extra something. Even better, use the gunk that brewers yeast makes: Vegemite!

25 years ago, I mixed tofu in about equal parts with eggse to make a scrambled egg-like substance. It wasn't bad really, but after I found I have a genetic condition that makes my blood cholesterol very low, I figured "why bother?"

I made some darn good chili a few nights ago. I'll probably do leftovers. But I might make another run to the grocery store, since it snowed a little more last night. Snow is fun!
