i've never seen tvp used as a cheese alternative, but if you wanted to make a faux parmesan topping, i would maybe grind/crush it up and sauté it with a little bit of oil and nutritional yeast and maybe a little salt or soy. let it cook together and dry out a bit to sprinkle over pasta or potatoes.
