Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie
A family of vegetarians, we really were pleasantly surprised how well this turns out when using TVP as a substitute for the hamburger. It's best with the pre-cooked (usually frozen) kind that has some subtle spices added, but I imagine even the dry, flavorless type of TVP would work if liquid is added (but then I'd definitely embellish the spices a bit). Additional oil is necessary, to compensate for the lack of fat which would be found in real hamburger, so I use olive to make it even healthier.
