Baconless Bits<br><br>
Category: Condiments, Dressings, Spreads<br><br><br><br>
Suitable for a: vegan diet<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Ingredients:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
2/3 cup water<br><br>
1/3 cup tamari or Bragg's Liquid Aminos (I use tamari)<br><br>
1 Tablespoon olive oil<br><br>
1 Tablespoon maple syrup<br><br>
1/2 tsp garlic powder<br><br>
1 1/4 cups TVP<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Instructions:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (176 degrees C) In a saucepan, put everything in but the TVP and bring to the boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the TVP. Stir well to combine then leave it for 10 minutes to rehydrate. While that rehydrates, lightly oil a non stick cookie sheet. Place the TVP mixture on the cookie sheet and spread it out to make a thin even layer. Bake for 8 minutes, take it out and stir and then spread it back down into a thin even layer again. Bake for an additional 8-10 minutes or until TVP is lightly brown and crunchy. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.<br><br><br><br><br><br>

These taste excellent--the salty tamari and the sweet maple syrup give them a flavour reminiscent of maple cured bacon. They are great on salads and jacket potatoes.<br><br><br><br>
There were 2 sizes of TVP to choose from at my Health Food Store. One was chunks the size of grapes and the other was chunks the size of peas. I used the smaller pea size for this recipe.

Cool! Adding 1/2 -1 tsp. of liquid smoke makes it even more 'authentic' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
