I just back from several international trips and started feeling a bit under the weather. I caught that awful cold and cough that is going around. I wanted something comforting to eat, my cupboards were bare. I found a can of vegetable soup and thought this will be easy. I opened it, put in a bowl to microwave and thought, I can add some healthy protein. TSP to the rescue!
I added about ½ cup dry TSP/TVP to the soup, stirred and microwaved for about 3 minutes. Voila! A perfect comforting soup.
This is a great tip and trick!
By simply adding dry TSP/TVP to any soup you add healthy, no-cholesterol protein (you’ll feel full longer!) and because TSP/TVP is neutral in taste, it does not change the taste of your intended soup.
