It's common to see the chunks (or small TVP). They're like maybe 1" in diameter. But I've seen ones there are about 1/2" thick, 2" wide and 3" long (maybe this is after soaked though), that can be bbq'd like little steaks. Any idea where to get these?

  • Is it possible you're thinking of seitan?

    What is TVP? I've never heard of it. It would help if you edit your question and explain.

    @Sneftel and GdD TVP is not seitan. It stands for "textured vegetable protein", usually made from soy, and is marketed as a meat substitute for vegetarians or a cheap source of diet protein.

  • @rumtscho I know. But I haven’t often seen TVP in that form factor, whereas it’s a usual size for seitan.

  • You might be thinking of "Dried frozen tofu" (not freeze dried, note) which this site (which I'm not affliated with and just found in a search for "slab TVP") claims is "a similar home-made product" where TVP as such is not home-makable, practically. Press it, slice it, freeze it, dry it, basically: seedtopantryschool.com/… The size mentioned is very much like typical tofu size.
