What is texturized vegetable protein?

Textured or texturized vegetable protein or texturized soy protein (also known as TVP or TSP) is a meat extender made from defatted soy flour.  It is a by-product of extracting soybean oil.  It is quick cooking and has the protein content that is equal to meat.  It is can be used as a vegetable alternative in whatever meat dishes it is replacing such as chili, sloppy joes, tacos, burgers and burritos.
