With clean hands, form patties and in an oiled cookie sheet, bake them till golden brown at 350 degrees F.
Meanwhile, prepare your favorite spaghetti-style tomato sauce (if you make your own barbecue sauce, you can use that too). When the meatless meaties are done in the oven and the sauce is ready, you take them out of the oven, slice them into thick chunks and throw them into the sauce, let them absorb the flavor of the sauce for about ten minutes.
Add as a side dish to mashed potatoes, baked yams, brown rice, you name it!
