After experimenting with TVP (textured vegetable protein) for some time, i came up with this recipe. This “sausage” can be used in a variety of ways. I think its the most convincing sausage substitute i’ve ever tried. The spices can be altered to make it more Italian by adding fennel and italian herbs.
cup textured vegetable protein
teaspoon poultry or 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
- Preheat oven to 400. Boil water and add seasonings. Combine TVP, flour and vital wheat gluten. Add broth to dry ingredients. Lightly oil muffin pan, and fill bottoms of cups with about 1/2″ of mixture. Bake in 400 degree oven about 10-12 minutes until firm. When ready to use, fry until brown on both sides, or crumble for use in recipes. Makes 12-14 patties.
