Vegan Sausage Kabobs

February 8, 2009

Maybe it was the bright sunshine after days of overcast skies, or perhaps the above-average 70 degree weather, who knows…but we were channeling summer today and the grill was calling my name.


I discovered a recipe for vegan sausages last week and this is my first time grilling them.  They were fantastic.  They crisped up on the outside but maintained a beautifully moist (that’s an odd way to describe sausage, eh?) interior.  

ps. Half the kabobs in this picture are not vegan.  Can you tell the difference? 🙂  


A lone kabob awaits his date with the grill master, the dedicated husband.


1 link vegan sausage  (recipe below courtesy of

2 roma tomatoes, quartered

1/2 of an onion 

1 zucchini, cut into rounds

Drizzle balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

Skewer all ingredients.  Grill as desired.


Vegan Sausages


Do not be deceived, friends, contrary to the appearance of my lovely sausage in this photo, this is NOT Tollhouse Slice and Bake Cookie Dough!

– 1/2 cup red beans
– 1 cup cold vegetable broth
– 2 tablespoons soy sauce
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 1/4 cups vital wheat gluten
– 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
– 1 1/2 teaspoons fennel seed, crushed
– 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
– 1 teaspoon dried oregano
– Several dashes fresh black pepper

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil stovetop and prepare steaming basket.
2. Arrange 6 – 7 sheets of tin foil.
3. Mash the beans until no whole ones are left.  
4. Incorporate remaining ingredients mix with a fork. Divide dough into 6 even parts.
5. Place a portion of the mixture into tin foil and mold into about a 5 inch log. Wrap dough sausage, twisting ends like tootsie roll. 
3. Place wrapped sausages in steamer and steam for 30 minutes, rotating halfway through cooking time.
