From "Vegan Comfort Food" by Alicia Simpson. I slightly modified it. This is the best faux sausage I've found! I have finally stopped buying veggie sausages! Hallelujah! Recipe makes a ton, but halves easily. And so inexpensive comparatively!
- 473.18 ml vital wheat gluten
- 118.29 ml nutritional yeast
- 118.29 ml chickpea flour (or soy flour)
- 9.85 ml onion powder
- 14.79 ml whole fennel seed
- 6.16 ml pepper
- 9.85 ml paprika
- 1.23 ml cayenne
- 4.92 ml oregano
- 2.46 ml sea salt
- 1.23-2.46 ml allspice
- 9.85 ml garlic powder
- 532.32 ml water
- 44.37 ml vegan worcestershire sauce (there are several recipes on this site!)
- 44.37 ml olive oil
- 14.79 ml Braggs liquid aminos or 14.79 ml soy sauce
- Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- In separate bowl whisk all the wet ingredients.
- Stir the wet into dry and mix lightly until combined and spongy dough forms.
- Form 1/4 to 1/3 cup of dough at a time into a small log about 6 inches long. INDIVIDUALLY wrap in aluminum foil (tightly, twisting the ends at the top and bottom like sausage casings. If they aren't wrapped tight enough they will burst out.
- When they are all wrapped up arrange them into a steamer basket over boiling water, and steam for 30 minutes.
- Cool, and remove from foil. Keeps in the fridge for up to a week. I freeze mine and take out as needed.
- What you have here when you're done is equal to raw sausage! Is isn't done yet! :) I like to saute it in a little oil in a cast iron skillet. It also crumbles up swell for tofu scrambles etc. Or slices for sausage and peppers. Sometimes after I unwrap these I immediately throw them in the oven with a little oil for another 10-15 minutes to crisp up the "skin".
- Note - I don't have a steamer. I use a strainer fitted over the top of a pot making sure the bottom of the strainer doesn't touch the water in the bottom of the pot. Then cover with a lid.
I've been making these on a regular basis for a few months now. Its so much tastier and cheaper to make a batch of this then to buy those expensive vegan products from the grocery store. These are delicious!
Great basic recipe that begs to be modified and is fast and easy to make. We make a batch several times a month - great for breakfasts and spiced up to create a Italian style sausage.
This recipe is a keeper. Turned out delicious and had a great texture. Next time i'm gonna add a tiny bit of pure maple syrup to make it more "breakfasty". Plan on making this recipe for Christmas breakfast this year.
