"So the only way my husband agreed to go vegan was if I found a replacement pepperoni. The store bought ones are way too expensive so here is the winner!! This recipe is adapted from the Vegan Dad. This is spicy but if you like pepperoni then it shouldn't be too bad. You can freeze this as well. Put these on pizza, sandwiches, salads, in tofu scrambles, and on veggie burgers. **We have made our second batch and my husband thought we could go even spicer so we put in 8-10 dashes of Tabasco sauce...just like the store bought tabasco flavored ones (DH's favorite)!!** **Change: we have made these again using tahinin instead of olive oil & find it works out better.** **Also if you do not have a steamer or colander & pot you can bake for 1hour 15 minutes at 325deg.**"

"A tasty sub for the real thing. We enjoyed munching on a few slice while I was making the pizza and found the flavor and texture very pleasing, however the ones baked on the pizza were just a little dry although not bad. Enjoyed the combination of spice. Can't wait to try this in some other dishes. Made as written and liked how quickly and easily it came together. Also liked that it makes three and that they are freezable. Thanks so much for the post."
"The best recipe I've found for vegan pepperoni. I doubled the recipe because cans of beans have two cups and I hate wasting the half a can. The only extra ingredient I used was 2 tsp of Peri Peri seasoning which added extra bit (not kidding about that! :) ). I shaped the mixture into two big thick 'logs' and steamed them for 90 minutes. Delicious.<br/><br/>The only change I might make next time is to use crushed aniseed seeds rather than star anise as the latter can be a tad too strong.<br/><br/>Thanks for the recipe. :)"
