Store bought veggie sausages are way to expensive, no need to buy them anymore! This homemade vegan sausages recipe will blow your mind! Super easy and delicous and will cost you no more than 20 cent/piece!
This recipe consists of two important ingredients: vital wheat gluten and beans.
Vital wheat gluten is high in protein (+- 80%), so good to make the protein rich!
But, consume with moderation. Gluten can have an inflammatory effect, and you become gluten intolerant. Having this once in a while during the BBQ season is great! Just don’t over consume it. ????

Delicious and cheap homemade vegan sausages, you can give them basically any flavour you wish!
Sauté and toast
In a large pan with coconut oil, sautée the chopped onion and garlic cloves until soft. Add the cumin and fennel seeds. Let it cook for another minute until the spices are toasted.
In a food processor, add the chickpeas, onion-garlic-spices mixture, tomato paste, broth, thyme, smoked paprika, soy sauce, nutritional yeast and water. Pulse until it’s saucy.
Pour the mixture into a large bowl and add the vital wheat gluten. Kneed until it forms a ball and add more gluten if needed.
Roll and cook
Now roll the sausages tightly into aluminum and cook/steam them for about 40 minutes. Flip them mid-time.
Bake or grill
To consume them remove the aluminum and either bake them in the oven for fat free or grill them in a pan.

When cooking them, do I boil water for 40 minutes with the sausages in the water, or just let them sit in the hot water without turning on the stove? Thanks.
Hi Randy, thanks for your question! You should either boil or steam them for 40 minutes. Make sure to package them tightly so the water won’t enter. Hope that helps.
Holy cow. These turned out so good. I have tried making vegan sausage before, but never could get it right. I am amazed how simple this recipe is, and well they turned out. These have a new home in my breakfast burritos. Thanks for the recipe. Now I just need to try literally everything else on this website.
