Still going through recipes and found my info. on TVP and think someone on 
the list inquired about that a short time ago.  TVP is short for Texturized 
Vegetable Protein.

To rehydrate small granule TVP, pour 7/8 cup boiling water over 1 cup TVP, 
stir and let stand 5 to 10 minutes.  
For chunk-size TVP or slices:  pour 1 cup boiling water over 1 cup chunky 
TVP. Stir, cover the pan and let soak for 5 minutes.  To cook in a microwave, 
cover tightly with plastic wrap and cook on high for 5-6 minutes; check after 
2 minutes and add a little more liquid if needed.
