As I did last week, I want to introduce you to a product that is new to me and which will now always be in my refrigerator. While I've tried other vegan sausages and been disappointed, I cooked up some of this sausage and did the happy dance all over the kitchen.
The next night I decided to make sausage, pepper, and onion hoagies. I even fed them to some friends who stopped by. We all made pigs of ourselves. The sausage is so perfectly seasoned that all I added was a pinch of fennel seeds to the stir fry pot and then scooped all that deliciousness onto some warm, crusty hoagie rolls. I served a side of fresh fruit and called it good.
SAUSAGE, PEPPER, & ONION HOAGIES
Break the sausage roll into small pieces and fry in 1 Tbs. of olive oil. Don't use a cooking spray. The sausage needs the oil to brown up and give the faux meat the mouth feel of real sausage. Set the sausage aside.
2 red bell peppers
2 green bell peppers
1 large onion of your choice
1 zucchini--just because I had it and it needed to be used
Salt and pepper to taste
Stir fry in the same pan you used to cook the sausage. I used a bit of vegetable stock to help with the stir fry so the ingredients wouldn't stick to the pan.
Add the sausage back into the skillet. Add in a pinch of fennel seeds if desired. Cook everything together for about 5 minutes.
Scoop the mixture into crusty rolls and enjoy. You'll need a good supply of napkins. These things are messy. But they sure are good.
