Whip up a batch of Veggie Magic Bacon Sprinkles, the kind that’ll make your taste buds do the happy dance. Let the magic start




  1. In a tiny saucepan, toss all the ingredients (excluding the TVP) and let the concoction dance to a rolling boil.
  2. Once the potion reaches a bubbling crescendo, whisk it away from the heat, then sprinkle in the TVP. Stir the cauldron until every bit of liquid gets soaked up.
  3. Now, preheat your oven to a magical 225oF/110oC.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread your Vegan bacon bits evenly across this enchanted land and then into the oven, they go.
  5. Cook them for just a wink or two, then give the sheet a little shake (or spread them around with a spatula), we want these bits to sizzle in harmony.
  6. Repeat until they’re crispy golden but beware of the burn spell.
  7. And there you have it, a super duper easy and awesome recipe for Vegan Bacon Bits that’ll have you spellbound as of the first bite.
