Product: Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP)
Details: TVP is used by vegetarians in various ways to add more protein to their diets. I have found it very useful as a stuffing, since it has no flavor and takes on the flavor of what you are combining with it and expands like a stuffing.
Net Carbs: 3 net grams per 1/4 cup.
- Great substitute for stuffing
- Substitute for ground beef
- Many possibilities, recipes on package
Price Range: $2 to $4
