1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. olive oil
4 individual submarine rolls
1 cup spaghetti sauce

• Combine the TVP and boiling water in a bowl and leave until the water is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Add the bread crumbs, flour, salt, cayenne pepper, oregano, sage, thyme, fennel and garlic and mix well.
• Shape the TVP mixture into 12 balls. Oil your palms and roll each ball to lightly coat with oil. Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet and broil until browned, about 10 minutes.
