Welcome 2021! How was your January?? Here's to some good times, reconnecting with ourselves and hopefully lots of hugs! Does anyone else feel like when we're FINALLY able to freely socialize in person, they're not gonna remember how to do it right?? I'm already pretty socially awkward to begin with.. so that should be extra fun. I see many uncomfortable interactions in my future haha!
But you know what's not socially awkward?? These delightful Crispy Italian Tofu "Sausage"' Crumbles! (brilliant transition, right?) 🤣
These crispy vegan Italian sausage crumbles are SO SIMPLE to make. Just crumble tofu, mix with seasonings and bake. Boom. Done. While baking your house will be full of the smells of sausage-y goodness, you're mouth will be watering.
They will quickly become a staple in your house! They are super versatile and so tasty that you'll be lucky if they make it off the pan! (Seriously, I can't stop picking at them when they're fresh out of the oven).
I love to use these crumbles for basically everything, they're a perfect addition to pasta dishes such as lasagna, Creamy Cajun Penne or even just a crunchy topping for buddha bowls, salads or even tacos! They store great in the fridge for about 5 days and are perfect for meal prepping!

- Place tofu mixture on baking sheet lined silicone mat (or parchment paper), spread out in a single layer. Use two baking sheets if necessary.
- Bake for 25 minutes. No need to flip. Eat as is or use as you would crumbled sausage! The little crispy bits are the best, so don't leave them behind!
Thank you for the recipe !
I make it all the time. Meat eaters cannot get enough !
I found that mixing the tofu and the tamarin/soy first and then mixing in the dry ingredients works best.
Simply fantastic !
