TSP (textured soy protein) is a perfect meat replacement. It’s basically soy flour cooked under pressure. Then it’s dehydrated and the end result looks like tiny chunks or crumbles.
The best thing about TSP is that it absorbs all flavors, spices, and sauces exactly like a sponge. This makes it a perfect meat replacement. It’s like ground meat, only vegan!
The very first step is to rehydrate the crumbles. But keep in mind that the crumbles themselves have almost no taste. Which is key here and a great advantage on our side.
When rehydrating, don’t forget to add the spices and herbs right away, so you can ensure that your TSP takes up all the yummy flavors.
There are smaller TSP crumbles and bigger TSP chunks, sometimes even 10 cm long! Make sure you choose the best size and shape for your recipe.
