Will give these a go, thanks! Although it's been so long since I had animal-based sausages that I don't really remember what they taste like.

Haha, I bet they'd be horrified! :O

OMG thanks to all who shared recipes and links!!!! I *finally* feel I can hang out with the cool kids now since I made my first steamed seitan sausages last night, the Italian Feast ones from Vegan Brunch.

I assume these variations will work with the recipe from Vegan Brunch, it yields 4 sausages? Some steamed sausage recipes use use navy beans, other pinto, and I'm sure other recipes may use other beans as a foundation. How do I know what beans will pair well with all the variation above? For example the hot dog recipe, would navy beans be just fine to use?

Yeah just do trial and error. For Mexican I always use pinto but I usually just do whatever I have on hand and it works fine.

thanks, will do! am excited about the 2 hot dog variations.

i assume that with any of the variations and original 'vegan brunch' recipe, that i would do 6 slightly narrower sausages rather than 4 thicker ones?

haven't spent a cent on fieldroast since I found this recipe - and working with it got me passed my fear of puffy, rubber, boiled seitan... now I admit I'm obsessed and make it once a week with different flavorings each time.

you can also use other vegetable purées in place of the beans - like roasted eggplant, sautéed mushrooms, steamed carrots or sweet potato, even peas! whatever seems like it will go nicely with your spice blend, and has a similar consistency to the bean mash.

I've also experimented with wine and beer in place of the broth with good results - but I'd recommend avoiding wheat beer as it ends up tasting too "bready".

also - if you reduce the VWG by 1/8 to 1/4 cup and/or add a bit of extra liquid so that the "dough" is almost wet and oozing way too much to be wrapped in foil but you do it anyway - the resulting texture is more hot-doggy - or should that be hot-diggity? ;) - good for eating on a bun but will fall apart if you try to put in a saucy dish like beanie-weenies.

hot-diggity, love that, i might need to borrow that phrase. i was thinking of calling them hot dangs ;)

i haven't bought any processed meat substitutes since going vegan, but i couldn't believe how expensive they are! i saw fieldroast "sausages" at earthfare, a pack of four for $6.49!!!! yikes, am so happy that isa taught me how to do it myself for so much less!

and thank you so much for the tip of using veg purees in place beans, good to know that the standard recipe is flexible.

copy & paste is your best friend.
i feel like i have a seitan variation user's manual now. after doing some formatting, i go it down to 3 or 4 pages and hole punched it for my recipe binder. i'll need to make a special "seitan" tab just for it which excites me :)

Hi all,

I want to try making the Polish Kielbasa from this fabulous thread, but I'm a bit confused (story of my life), do I use this as the base:

1/2 cup cooked pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
2 cloves garlic, grated (with a microplane, or very finely minced)
1 1/4 cups vital wheat gluten
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons chickpea flour

and then add:

2 tsp caraway seeds, crushed [tester recommendation: reduce to 1 tsp or even 1/2 tsp caraway seeds]
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp marjoram
1 tsp sugar
½ tsp allspice
freshly ground pepper
1 tsp liquid smoke (optional tester recommendation)

or have I completely misunderstood???

Thanks you!

i'm not sure where your "base" recipe came from, but i use the base recipe from the vegan brunch cookbook (by isa), it's very much different from yours -- i use the italian feast sausage recipe as my base. i leave out all the extra seasonings that make it the italian feast sausage and sub in the new spice variation that makes it an entirely different sausage.

you should probably leave out the cloves of garlic if you're going to add garlic powder (or skip the garlic powder), but it looks like it would work otherwise.

YES! That is your perfect formula! Ironically I making this later this afternoon too!

edited to add: I'm only using 3/4 tsp caraway seed

p.s. edited to add: I find it most helpful to dissolve the spices in the veg broth, it makes it easier to make sure all the seasonings are evenly distributed throughout the sausages when you mix everything up.

we were not huge fans of the polish keilbasa variation -- i'm glad we drastically cut down on the caraway seed, it just felt like eating rye bread.

still all the other variations we have tried have been winners :)

Has anyone tried using this recipe to make boerewors? Do you think it would work if I wrap it as one long sausage, then wind it into a coil or should I wind it into a coil, then wrap it? Or should I just forget about the coil and focus on the spice blend? I'm going to do some research on which spices to include but any suggestions would be much appreciated if anyone has already tried.

Summertime is approaching and I'd love to be able to take some vegan boerewors along to the family BBQs (boyfriend's family is South African). :-)
