Textured Vegetable Protein Breakfast Sausage Crumbles
Contributed by: DeliciousImperative
Slightly sweet, slightly spicy, this substitute for breakfast sausage faithfully recreates those tantalizing flavors that make a potato and veggie skillet into a hearty start to the day. This recipe was not tested by Bob’s Red Mill.
2 cups TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein)
2 tsp Vegetable Bouillon powder or paste
1/2 tsp dried Sage
1/2 tsp dried Rosemary
1/2 tsp freshly ground Black Pepper
1/2 tsp ground Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Liquid Smoke
1/4 tsp powdered Cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp dried Red Pepper Flakes
2 Tbsp pure Maple Syrup
2 cups Water
Combine all ingredients except TVP in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes to help rehydrate the spices and blend flavors.
In a heatproof bowl, pour the boiling broth mixture over the TVP and stir to combine. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes.
-This mixture makes great breakfast tacos when mixed with a little salsa, or you can enjoy it as we do in a skillet with home-style potatoes, diced onions and green peppers, and salsa.
