It is also a good source of dietary fiber, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. This product is made from defatted soy flour that has been cooked under pressure and then dried. It is very easy to prepare, and since it takes on the flavor of whatever recipe it is added to, the array of recipes in which it may be used is immeasurable.

To rehydrate the granules, pour 7/8 cup of 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 on 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 it has been rehydrated, it must be kept under refrigeration.
