  1. I have never made zucchini soup. This sounds and look delicious. Do you happen to know a gluten free sub for TVP? I spent a good amount of time today looking for a gluten-free brand (tested or certified GF). Meanwhile, I’ll have to come up with another idea if you are not aware of one. Thanks!

    FYI – I wish your blog had an option to be notified of reply comments.

  2. Delicious. I have to use up my squash from the garden. This looks perfect. I love low calorie soups. Thanks for sending me this great recipe.

    Sounds good but what is TVP?

  4. Gloria Rayburn says:

    I don’t know what “TVP” is either. Help please. Thanks.

    It’s textured vegetable protein. Usually little granules made from soy. You can also get them as rather large chunks. It’s really handy as a substitute for ground meat. Hope this helps.

    This sounds great but like others not sure what TVP is. Please answer so I can make this soon.

    Hello Steve,
    Thank you for your question. TVP is textured vegetable protein. It’s usually small dehydrated grains from soy. Often it is called textured soy protein. It’s a great vegan replacement for ground meat. Here’s a link to wikipedia about it.
