Ants Crawling Up Trees
2/3 cup textured soy protein 1/2 cup hot water
2 tb soy sauce
1 to 2 tablespoon hot bean paste
1/2 ts salt (optional)
3 1/2 oz bean thread noodles
2 cup veggie broth or water
Pour the boiling water over the textured soy protein 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 textured soy protein. 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 textured soy protein mixture and stir until blended evenly...ie. all the ants are distributed throughout. Enjoy!
