Making Vegan Bacon Bits
This is so easy – just assemble all the ingredients (TVP, salt, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, maple syrup and water) and mix them together. Unlike most recipes that use TVP you do not rehydrate it first. Just dump it in the mixing bowl. When you first make the vegan bacon bits, they will be damp, but not wet. You can eat the vegan bacon bits right away, or store them in the fridge for up to a month. They will get drier the longer you have them but the flavour will remain good.
