    Hi Martha,

    I use TVP in the mince style, its basically like quorn but a dry form.

    I normally crumble in a stock cube and then cover in boiling water, leave it to soak for 5/10 mins and then use as I would quorn mince. I live overseas and we cant get Quorn products here so I use it in bolognaise, lasagne, shepherds pie, savoury mince, chilli.....the only thing I find its not good for is formed foods such as burgers and meatballs.

    Another benefit for me is its about 20% of the cost of the real stuff and so much lower in fat and cholesterol :)

    Enjoy!!

    Wholefood shops usually sell it or Holland and Barrat stock it I think - I don't like the texture of personally but it is a lot cheaper than Quorn
