Key ingredient in concrete and pool cleaner. Oh, wait, that's TSP. Probably wouldn't taste as good.

TVPstands for textured vegetable protein, and is similar to gluten and is made from soy beans. It has a texture very similar to chicken and can be purchased granulated and in bite-sized chunks. It's used as a nutritious filler in the convenience store burritoes, mixed in with ground beef, in chili, and other such applications. To much and it will alter the flavor of what you're cooking. But it will help bind foods and add texture and nutrition to the foods it's added to. Some people love using it, and some hate the stuff. You have to just try it and see if you like it.
