Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens.Heat the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the soy sausage and seitan, cook for 5 minutes or until lightly browned, then add to the tomato mixture. Adjust the seasonings to taste and simmer an additional 5 minutes. Serve over rice.
