How to Re-Hydrate Textured Soy Protein

Cooking with TSP is easy. When starting with the dry form, soy granules or chunks need to be rehydrated before use:

  • Use approximately equal amounts TSP and liquid. Try a ratio of about 1 cup TSP to 7/8 cups water, or find a consistency you like.
  • Use hot liquid to speed absorption. Using hot liquids means TSP will rehydrate in about 5-10 minutes and be ready for use.
  • Rehydrate with water or use a combination of water plus salad dressing, seasoning, or broth for the best flavour.
  • When rehydrated, TSP approximately doubles in volume. For example, ½ cup dry TSP will yield approximately 1 cup when “wet”.
