A really bad picture of what was a great meal. I was on my own on Saturday and although I didn’t have a clear plan of what I was going to eat I knew I was going to try Julie Hasson’s sausage. The internet, well, the vegan part of it, has been buzzing with how good and easy it is for a while now. Even reading how easy it was I didn’t really trust myself to do it as it sounded a bit similar to making seitan, which i’ve always avoided.
Lots of people have been adapting it so i decided to try Isa from Vegan With a Vengeance’s adaption. It really was very quick and easy to make. I had a bit of a disaster when I left them on their own to steam without noticing that the pan had boiled dry. Luckily the stench of burning pan alerted me before the house burnt down.
When I unwrapped the foil I was expecting a mess but to amazement they looked just like sausages! I decided they’d be perfect on pizza and remembered I had some pizza dough in the freezer from another time when I’d made too much. I took that out and let it defrost naturally. On the pizza I put:
Some plain tofutti cream cheese mixed with a spoonful or 2 of Meridian pesto. That was the base.
Some cooked spinach, sliced tomato, and the sausage.
When it was done I poured chilli oil and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast on it. It was heavenly!!!!
The following day I used more of the sausage with potatoes, spinach, onions, mushrooms and hot sauce in a sort of breakfast hash. It was divine. I will definitely definitely mbe making these sausages again and trying different combinations of beans, herbs and spices too. A result!
