    A recipe for Teriyaki flavoured TVP Chunks based on "Pleasantly Plump Vegan's Recipe"
     

    rehydrate:
    1 3/4 cup boiling water
    2 cups  TVP chunks

    In a mixing bowl:
    pour boiling water over TVP chunks
    (if you have a sensitivity to the TVP:
    after letting it sit with boiling water about 10 min,
    drain it well, then squeeze it well, rinse,
    squeeze, rinse, squeeze,
    until the liquid comes out clear)

    In a saucepan:
    combine following ingredients and
    heat until everything is dissolved
    has had some time to thicken a bit.

    1 1/2 cup of fruit juice
    2 Tbsp oil
    4 Tbsp soy sauce
    4 Tbsp honey
    4 Tbsp sugar
    12 slices peeled fresh ginger
    7 large fresh garlic cloves (kept whole)

    Place drained, rehydrated TVP
    in the cooking liquid bring to a boil
    and turn down to minimum for 30 min
    boil down until it is syrupy.

    On parchment lined cookie sheet:
    placed all (syrup and TVP with seasoning)
    dehydrate in oven at 350 fahrenheit for an hour
    (mixing at the 20 and 40 min points in baking/drying).

    Cool to room temperature then refrigerate in sealed container.

    Enjoy this oriental style of TVP jerky as
    a snack or chop into small pieces and used like
    bacon bits like in salads or on baked potatoes.
