Broth that may have a sweet Taste) 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 evenly...ie. all the "ants" are distributed throughout. Enjoy!
