Vegan Sausage is a healthy way to enjoy a meat like meal. By using vegetable and grain based proteins, you can eliminate animal fats and cholesterol from your diet.
Animal foods have no fiber. The following vegan sausage recipe is loaded with fiber. If you want to improve your health, gradually move off animal based foods towards a plant based diet. You will notice a big difference in your health.
Some of the benefits include:
Lower Blood Pressure
You can serve this sausage with Tofu Scrambled Eggs or as a meat alternative for your dinner or supper meals. In the recipe below, TVP stands for Textured Vegetable Protein.
Vegan Sausage Recipe
1 Cup Cooked Beans Mashed or Refried ( I use organic black beans that I mash )
1 Cup Vegetable Broth
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil and 2 Tablespoons Braggs Liquid Aminos
2 Tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
1 and 1/4 Cup Vital Wheat Gluten
1/2 Cup Soaked TVP ( Reconstitute with 1/2 cup Pure Water )
1/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast Flakes ( bulk section of grocery store )
1 Tablespoon of Sage
1 teaspoon of Paprika
1/2 teaspoon of Thyme and Rosemary and Whole Fennel Seed
Pinch of Cayenne
Mix all of the wet ingredients in a large bowl. Pulse the Whole Fennel Seed and then mix with all the other ingredients until you get a sausage like roll. Place in aluminum foil. Best to take a knife and poke little holes in the top of the foil. Bake between 60-90 minutes at 350 degrees.
You can cut off sausage slices and brown them in a skillet.
You can also freeze as much as you want to in containers so you have sausage when you have a recipe you would like to add it to or just pull out some for a tofu scrambled eggs breakfast.
I found that gradually getting off animal foods helped me lose over 75 pounds. My blood pressure is perfect as is my cholesterol. I have more energy now than I did when I was much younger.
One other idea is to cut up small bites and add the sausage to your favorite soups or slow cooker recipes.
