We use TVP (textured vegetable protein) to make homemade meatless bacon bits. TVP (or TSP) is a high-protein dehydrated vegetable/soy product with a chewy, meaty texture. It’s a popular ingredient for meat substitute among vegans and vegetarians. It doesn’t have much taste on its own. Due to its dried sponge-like nature, it soaks up vegan bacon seasoning like no other. This makes it the best candidate for our vegan bacon bits.
