Great Recipes with TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein)?

Good Questions

Q: I saw that it was Vegan Week, so I thought I should ask a question that's been in my mind since I explored the dark corners of my cupboard:

Do you have any tasty recipes using TVP (textured vegetable protein)? We made a pot pie with it once, but the texture of the chewy granules in the gravy wasn't very nice.

Editor: We've had some great dishes with TVP (Whole Foods seems to do them especially well) but we've never cooked with it.

Readers, what are your favorite TVP recipes? Any good resources for cooking it well? Tips? Great recipes?
