“Da Speech: Crumbled tofu or TVP (textured vegetable protein) may be used instead of vegetarian burger crumbles. Liquid Smoke comes in various flavoring which is stirred in near the end of the cooking time to add a pleasant smoked nuance to the stew. You want Hickory here. You can find it in Wally or natural food stores or even your local general store. Vegetarian Worcestershire sauce, available in natural food stores, is made without anchovies.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the "sausage" links and cook until browned, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the sausage from the pot and set aside.
  2. Reheat the oil in the saucepan and add the onion, celery, potato, garlic, and ginger.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of the stock or water, cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove the lid, add the remaining stock or water and stir in the tomatoes, corn, limas, Worcestershire sauce or tamari, mustard, sugar, allspice, Tabasco, and salt and pepper to taste, and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until the vegetables are tender, about 45 to 50 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. During the last 10 minutes of cooking time, add the reserved “sausage,” the vegetarian burger crumbles, and the Liquid Smoke.
  7. Note: feel free to play with the amount of corn and limas or to sub in other veggies to taste.
