I made white beans and rice (just like red), with venison sausage and some spicy creole seasoning.

Mixed in a spoonful of yogurt at the end.

Yup, that's what it is: Textured vegetable protein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There was some nice shutome at the fishmarket today, so I made a puttanesca sauce with the seared fish:

Katie, you are correct. TVP is textured vegetable protein, and I have used both dehydrated and hydrated versions. The hydrated protien can have the a texture similar to hamburger and can be used as such. At camp we used a dry version which was seasonsed with Italian spices and added it to vegetables and/or rice to make a quick vegetarian dish. I prefered making my own dishes for my vegetarian crew, but there were times when we would have to resort to a "quick fix", such as a taco filling.

My lentil loaf, does not call for this. I unfortunately am not sure where to post the recipe, so if someone could let me know, I gladly post it.

OOps, sorry GotGarlic, I didn't see your reply when I posted. But I thought I would leave my comments up.

I have been wanting to make my beef wrap-ups for a while now, but I haven't been able to find refrigerated crescent rolls here in London so I decided to just use puffed pastry and it worked out well. I'll just have to do it that way until we move back to the States.
