TVP Sausage (Vegetarian)

1-1/2 C TVP or TSP
1-1/4 C steaming hot water
2 eggs
1/2 C cold water
1/2 lb block of tofu, pressed for at least 1 hour and drained
2 T garlic, chopped
1 T fresh rosemary, chopped
1-1/2 t thyme
1-1/2 t sage
2 t fennel seeds
1 t red pepper flakes
2 t salt
1 t pepper
2 T cornstarch
Frying oil

Cover the TVP with the boiling water in a bowl or casserole. Cover and let steam for 15 minutes. Drain it in a strainer for 45 minutes. You can do this while the tofu is being pressed.

Beat the eggs in a medium bowl. Crumble the tofu and combine it with the eggs. Stir in the TVP and all the rest, except for the oil.

Form into small round patties, using about 3 T of the mixture for each one. Fry in a skillet in 1/4 inch of hot oil, about 2 minutes on each side. They should be browned and heated through. Drain on paper towels.
