Yummy Vegan Sausage…

I’ve used this same recipe to make a roast, but this time I decided to make sausages instead. I steamed them too instead of boiling it then baking it. I also didn’t use the oil and butter the original recipe calls for. They were YUMMY! I ate it with this tasty sweet and spicy ginger sauce. Here it is…enjoy!

Vegan Sausage

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups vital wheat gluten
  • ½ Cup bread crumbs (I toast Ezekiel bread then put it in the food processor to make the bread crumbs)
  • ½ Cup nutritional yeast
  • 1.5 Tablespoon dried thyme
  • ½ large onion finely chopped (you can caramelize them, but I don’t. I just chop them very fine in the food processor)
  • ½ Tablespoon kosher salt (optional)
  • 2 Cups strong No Chicken, chicken stock
  • 6 square pieces of foil

Directions:

First mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the onions to the dry ingredients and mix.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until a loose batter forms.  Get a handful of mixture and form into the shape of a sausage on a piece of foil. Roll up and twist ends (like a tootsie roll). Put in a steamer for 30 – 40 minutes.

My Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers…

My Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups cooked black beans (or 1 can)
  • 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
  • .25 cup bread crumbs (I make my own out of Ezekiel Bread)
  • 1/2 of a small red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • .5 cup quinoa (cooked)
  • 1/4 cup water
Directions:

Pre heat over to 425*. If using canned black beans, drain and rinse. In food processor add onion and pulse till finely chopped. Put onions in mixing bowl, then add black beans to processor. Pulse a few times till beans are well smashed. Don’t do it too much because you want to have some whole beans in your burgers. Add to bowl with onion and mix with your hands. Then add garlic, bread crumbs, quinoa, ketchup, and spices. Make sure everything is combined well. Next add the vital wheat gluten and water. Mix well with hands and form into 8 hamburger patties. Cook burgers on cookie sheet with a little cooking spray. I cooked for 10 minutes on one side, flip, then bake for another 5 – 10 minutes. Serve with your favorite toppings and condiments. Makes 8 burgers.
