  2. Make Sausage
    1. Heat oil in a medium sized non-stick skillet over medium heat. Adding vegetable oil to skillet
    2. Once hot add the rehydrated TVP. It might pop a little so be careful. I like to spread the TVP out as thin as I can to make it brown as fast as possible. Adding textured vegetable protein (TVP) to oiled skillet/pan over medium heat Textured vegetable protein (TVP) flattened in skillet/pan to help brown faster
    3. After a few minutes add the fennel seeds and saute for about 2 minutes. You should really smell the Italian in the Italian Sausage at this point. Jar/container of fennel seeds seasoning/spice
