There's a dried product that you can buy in bulk that looks kinda like eye boogers but gives chili or pasta sauce a ground beef consistency if you add it after soaking.

Anyone know what it is?

TVP (textured vegetable protein). It's made from soybeans.

TVP = yummy. How do you figure it looks like eye boogers?

Eye boogers! That's HILARIOUS!

But actually I can see your point. The stuff that's pale yellowish, and not colored a dark "beef" brown...eww, yeah...that's pretty descriptive.

All the places around here only sell the dark brown variety though. It doesn't look nearly so... 'booger-ish' :P

It really does look like eye boogers!

I've never seen dark brown TVP.
