This was fantastic! I can't tell you how excited I am abut this recipe. I have been a vegetarian for 13 years and the only meat I miss is sausage. All the products on the market just don't cut it for me. This can be put on pizza, in a lasagna, the uses are endless. I plan on making a double batch next time and freezing it. One note, I used soy sauce and 3T was too much for my taste. I will cut back on that. Thanks so very much for sharing your recipe.

  1. Stir boiling water with liquid smoke (if using), soy sauce, maple syrup, and molasses.
  2. Meanwhile, mix TVP with dry seasonings; stir to incorporate. Combine wet and dry mixtures. Then allow the TVP to absorb the moisture for about 5 minutes while you heat the oil.
  3. Fry mixture in oil in an uncovered frying pan on medium heat, about 5 minutes (or until browned), stirring occasionally.
