Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix TVP, vegetable broth, and flaxseed meal together in a large mixing bowl and let sit for 5 minutes. Add oats, yeast, flour, gluten, sage, black pepper, fennel seeds, garlic powder, thyme, smoked paprika, salt, and cayenne. Mix until well blended.

  • Combine water, soy sauce, and maple syrup in a separate container and mix well. Add to the TVP mixture and combine into a slightly crumbly dough. Mix well to activate gluten and let dough sit for 5 minutes; dough should stiffen slightly and become less crumbly.

  • Form into tablespoon-size balls and flatten slightly.

  • Heat oil in a cast iron or nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Cook sausage patties in the hot oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side.

Cook's Notes:

You can use warm water instead of vegetable broth, any type of flour that you prefer, and Bragg(R) Amino Acids instead of soy sauce.

If dough is too wet, sprinkle slightly more flour (or oats/breadcrumbs) and mix again, adjust and mix as needed until dough will mostly still stick together in tablespoon-size balls.

I'm giving this five stars because it has a good flavor and can be made fairly simply with stuff most vegan kitchens have on hand. Most other sausage recipes call for cooking lentils or using canned beans; this one I was able to throw together in a few minutes. It doesn't have the texture of sausage, but I wasn't really expecting it to. My wife and I both loved it and will be making it again. Read More

This is a stunning recipe, one I would use to convince the vegan-reluctant that they can at least substitute some of the meat in their diets with vegan alternatives. The flavor is phenomenal. The texture and bite are excellent. I may experiment with running it through a food processor to give it a finer texture (like some of the commercial offerings), but make no mistake, it is excellent exactly as presented. Read More

This is a great nutritious vegan sausage. It includes a lot of ingredients but surprisingly I had them on hand! I believe I can make about a dozen patties from this recipe. The patties would be great with tofu scramble or vegan French toast or pancakes or just fruit. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
