New vegan here, but this recipe served as the basis for a very successful attempt at a vegan "remake" my cajun red beans and rice recipe. I made six sausages instead of just four, as the size more closely resembled the cajun hot sausages I would normally use in size, smell and look. They needed to steam a little more than 45 minutes - at least for my steamer. All in all with a bit of additional spices, these were a big hit. Everyone had seconds!
