This is a hearty and delicious chili that even meat-eaters love!

Including more vegetarian meals into your diet provides good quality protein, higher fibre content, and lower in calories and saturated fat than chili made with ground beef.

Textured or texturized vegetable protein (TVP), also known as textured soy protein (TSP), soy meat, or soya chunks is a defatted soy flour product, a by-product of extracting soybean oil. It is quick to cook, with a protein content far greater than that which comes from meat. It also has a very similar texture to ground meat.
