Here are some benefits to using Textured Vegetable Protein in place of meat:
- No animal fat
- Good source of protein and fiber
- Long shelf life, convenient, and quick to use
- Good source of iron
- Extends meat
- Easier to digest than regular meats
After Textured Vegetable Protein has been hydrated, it can be added to any recipe that calls for meat. You can also use it as a meat extender. For example, if your recipe calls for 2 pounds of meat and you only have one, you can add Textured Vegetable Protein to make up the difference. Taco-flavored is great for burritos, tacos, and enchiladas. Sausage-flavored is great for quiche and casseroles. Beef-flavored works great in lasagna and casseroles. You can also add it to your spaghetti sauce.
Textured Vegetable Protein is very easy to prepare - easier than real meat. In addition, it is a great meat substitute for those on a budget. Our Bacon Bits and Beef Flavored Textured Vegetable Proteins are other great selections! Don't miss this opportunity to add these items to your food storage.
