Vegan Sausage Recipe:


Dry Ingredients:
  • 1 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons chickpea flour (also known as gram flour)
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
Wet Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients: vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, chickpea flour, smoked paprika, garlic powder, fennel seeds, dried thyme, dried sage, red pepper flakes, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: vegetable broth or water, soy sauce or tamari, tomato paste, and olive oil.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to form a dough. Knead the dough for about 3-4 minutes until it becomes elastic and well combined.
  4. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions and shape each portion into a sausage shape. Wrap each sausage in aluminum foil, twisting the ends to secure them.
  5. Place the wrapped sausages in a steamer basket or a large pot with a steaming rack. Steam the sausages for about 30-40 minutes.
  6. Once the sausages are steamed, carefully unwrap them and let them cool slightly.
  7. Optionally, you can brown the sausages in a pan with a little oil for a few minutes on each side to achieve a crispy exterior.
