I made this today, the “eggs” were yummy, I didn’t miss the oil/salt, etc. at all. My “sausage,” however, went wrong and the batter was much more runny than in the video, I probably used too much broth, also I mashed up the chickpeas more than in the video. They came out ok, but were very bland, so I sprayed them with Bragg’s and they were better, but I’m sure they’re not what they are supposed to be, and I’m sure it’s my fault. I’ll definitely have the “eggs” again, and will give the “sausage another try.

Just to make it a little healthier; I used ground flaxseed instead of arrowroot. I found that it was a better binder as well.
