How to Prepare TVP
To rehydrate the granules, pour 7/8 cup boiling water, vegetable broth or stock over 1 cup TVP. Stir and let stand 5 to 10 minutes.
To cook in a microwave, cover tightly with plastic wrap and cook in high for 5-6 minutes; check after 2 minutes and add a little more liquid if needed. You can prepare a double batch of chunks, enough for 2 or 3 recipes, and the cooked TVP will keep in the refrigerator several days. Or freeze some to thaw later in a microwave or in the refrigerator. Once TVP has been rehydrated, it must be kept under refrigeration.
Keeps best refrigerated or frozen.
