    I am stumped…. I did the recipe exactly as stated and my end product before dehydrating was too powdery to seem right. I even put this mixture int eh dehydrator and it just cracked. Clearly, I am missing something. I just want to be clear, are all the measurements correct on this site???

    Please help me if you can.

    Hello there

    I too would like to know which product you are using for this “1 lb Soy protein” in the Vegetarian Jerky recipe, before I commence to try this out.

    Thanks so much for this contribution and I can’t wait to give it a go 🙂

    People seem to be confused as to what soy protein is. I’m not positive, but textured vegetable protein (TVP) seems to fit the description. It’s made from soy flour, is very high in protein, and the main ingredient in many store bought vegetarian products, including jerky. Try this link:

    They must have meant 1 lb soy “meat,” which can be found in little 1lb tubes for a couple bucks at the grocery. Soy protein is a very heavy powder used in protein smoothies/shakes and some foods. This recipe would be way too dry if using protein instead of “meat.”

    Hi I was wondering if there is anything I could use to substitute for the soy protein? Thanks.
