Ants Crawling Up Trees
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. 408
TVP (Texturized Vegetable Protein)
chopped or grated
soy sauce, tamari
red curry paste
hot sauce or bean paste, up to 2 tablespoons
or water, avoid stocks that may have a sweet taste
Pour the boiling water over the TVP and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Sauté 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 evenly.
ie. all the "ants" are distributed throughout. Enjoy!
