Pour the boiling water over the TVP and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Saute the gingerroot in a very small anount of oil or other liquid.
Add the soy sauce, bean paste, salt and TVP. Cook very very gently and
stir frequently as it burns easily. Cook about 5 minutes and set
aside. Cook the bean threads in the broth until the broth has been
absorbed by the noodles. Add the noodles to the TVP mixture and stir
until blended all the "ants" are distributed throughout.
Enjoy! Source: This is a dish that was a favorite at our local
Chineses eatery. I used to make it with ground turkey (before I saw
the light) and have found that TVP works just as well. It's hot and
spicy...delicious and just a little different. Posted by Ann
