Vegan Bacon Bits – Food with Feeling

You’ll LOVE these Vegan Bacon Bits that are SO simple to make (they come together in just about 10 minutes) and are made with textured vegetable protein that is plant based and packed with protein.

I don’t know about you but bacon bits are a big part of my childhood. My parents always kept them in the house and I loved them so so much (no shame!). I can’t even tell you what it is about them besides the crunch saltiness that is just so good.

NATURALLY, I wanted to create a vegetarian version of these bits and was so excited to discover textured vegetable protein which makes the recipe really come together.

What is TVP?

TVP stands for “textured vegetable protein”. It’s similar to soy curls but much smaller in size. TVP has just ONE ingredient in it: “defatted soy flour”. So, it’s a soy based product that’s relatively inexpensive, easy to find online, and so very versatile!

Straight out of the bag, TVP is pretty much completely flavorless and has a similar crunchy texture to bacon bits. In order to flavor it, it’s best to rehydrate it first so that it can really soak up the flavors that you’re mixing it with.
